After receiving chiropractic adjustments, many women have reported relief from low-back pain due to pregnancy.
Chiropractic treatment offers a non-pharmaceutical and safe form of pain relief.
A pelvis that is out of alignment can restrict the amount of space available to your developing baby. When an external
force obstructs your growing baby's normal movements, it's known as intrauterine constraint. This can lead to birth defects.
Another complication that a misaligned pelvis may pose relates to delivery. When the pelvis is out of alignment, it can
make it hard for your baby to move into the best position to be born, which is rear-facing, head down.
Restriction of movement often causes a baby to stay in a breech position beyond 37 weeks. This can be a very disconcerting
feeling to many women. Once the pelvis and sacrum are properly aligned, the Webster Technique focuses on relieving the tightness
in the round ligaments.
In some cases, this could affect a woman's ability to have a natural and noninvasive birth. A balanced pelvis also means your
baby has a lower chance of moving into a breech or posterior position. When your baby is in a nonoptimal birthing position, it can
lead to a longer, more complicated delivery.
Other evidence points to improved outcomes in labor and delivery for women who have received chiropractic care during their pregnancy.
In fact, it may help reduce the length of time you're in labor.
