Chiropractic care is extremely beneficial and safe during pregnancy. It is vital that during pregnancy (and pre-conception) the expecting mother’s body is in the best possible alignment. This allows for optimal development and positioning of the baby during gestation. Studies have shown that expecting mothers, who have regular chiropractic care during pregnancy experience less pain1 and shorter labour times2. Chiropractic techniques for pregnant patients are modified for maximum comfort and safety.
