Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal function of mother and baby throughout pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body’s main focus is to create a healthy and happy baby. At Active Care, we can help you during pregnancy through the Webster Technique.
Our Webster Certificated physicians can help your body function the way it was intended, allowing your pregnancy and childbirth to be easier.
The Webster Technique
We will analyze your pelvis and make the gentle and effective corrections to the pelvis and surrounding structures to make sure there is no asymmetry. This helps promote a healthy pregnancy, alleviating many common aches and pains, and can make a significant difference in labor and delivery. By evening the hips and pelvis through Webster Technique, the baby has more room to get into the optimal position for birth.
We will also review stretching and exercises to be performed outside of the office to facilitate the optimal positioning of the pelvis. We will also discuss diet and nutrition will be discussed with each patient as diet is an important component to health during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and motherhood.
A few weeks before delivery, we will teach and review different birthing positions and maneuvers you can perform to allow an easier delivery for the you and your baby. For additional information about Webster Technique, to search evidenced-based research, please visit the ICPA Research Site.
Postpartum Chiropractic Care
Helping you recover.
As chiropractic care during pregnancy helps your body adapt to the many changes up until birth, postpartum care helps you recover from those changes. During pregnancy, your body has produced relaxin, a hormone that softens ligaments and joins.
This hormone allows your joints to become misaligned more easily and it can take months for those ligaments to tightening back up and bring your body back together.
In addition, core and pelvic floor muscles are compromised during pregnancy and delivery, which can lead to other issues such as back pain, incontinence, pelvic pain, and others if not properly rehabbed. Further, the stressors of motherhood- carrying a new baby, nursing, sitting longer periods of time, and simply less time to take care of yourself will take a toll on your recovery. We help your body re-align and adapt to the new changes of motherhood.
