How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Pregnancy

Feeling aches and pains during your pregnancy? You’re not alone. Many pregnant women experience back pain, sciatica, and other discomforts as their bodies change to accommodate a growing baby. Here are some of the conditions that chiropractic care may help with during pregnancy:

  • Low back pain or sciatica
  • Pubic symphysis dysfunction (pain and a feeling of pressure in the front groin area)
  • Fetus positioning (helping to optimize the position so that the baby is facing towards the mother’s back)
  • Pain when walking upstairs, or pain lifting your legs
  • Indigestion or constipation
  • Headaches/sinus problems
  • Neck and arm pain  

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy can keep your spine aligned, helping ease discomfort and minimize pain for the many changes your body goes through during pregnancy. It can also help for mothers hoping for a VBAC (Vaginal birth after cesarean) or for mothers wanting to increase their likelihood of a natural birth with the baby being in the optimum position for delivery.

Webster Technique: Optimizing Your Baby’s Position

Dr. Megan Cloud has extensive experience in chiropractic for all stages of pregnancy from prenatal to maternity to postpartum recovery.  She is trained, experienced, and certified in Webster Technique, a specific chiropractic method designed to support pregnant women. This gentle technique involves adjustments to the pelvis and surrounding areas, creating more space for the baby to move into an optimal birthing position, while also reducing discomfort and promoting a healthier pregnancy.  The Webster Technique is particularly beneficial for pregnant women as it:

  • Optimizes pelvic alignment: Makes sure the pelvis is properly aligned, giving the baby more space and potentially making labor and delivery easier.
  • Relieves discomfort: Eases common pregnancy-related pains like lower back pain, hip pain, and pelvic discomfort.
  • Supports your baby’s optimal positioning: Helps create a balanced pelvic environment, encouraging the baby to move into the best position for birth. 

Prenatal and Postpartum Chiropractic Care Specific to Your Needs

We understand that every pregnancy is unique. Our prenatal chiropractic care is tailored to your specific needs, using gentle and effective adjustments. But our support doesn’t end there.

Did you know that Postpartum chiropractic care can help your body recover from the stresses of pregnancy and delivery, promoting a faster return to your pre-pregnancy state?  Dr. Cloud can help align your spin with specific adjustments for this stage that address common postpartum issues such as back pain, neck pain, and pelvic misalignment.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care: Supporting Your Child’s Development

In addition to prenatal and postpartum care, we offer pediatric chiropractic services. As an experienced infant chiropractor, Dr. Cloud provides gentle and safe adjustments for newborns and infants, addressing issues such as colic, reflux, and sleep disturbances. Early chiropractic care can support your child’s overall health and development, laying the foundation for a healthy life.
