Prenatal and Postpartum Chiropractic
at Roots Chiropractic

pregnant mom with hands on tummyMany people don’t think about getting chiropractic care while they’re pregnant—but that’s a perfect time to get care! In fact, beginning care before you try to conceive can help your body and nervous system prepare for the changes pregnancy brings.

When you’re pregnant, your body undergoes incredible changes in a short period, including hormonal, chemical and physical changes. All of these are controlled by your nervous system, so ensuring that it’s functioning at its peak can help you adapt to the shifts with minimal pain, discomfort and dysfunction.

Our Roots Chiropractic doctors have advanced training in prenatal care, and Dr. Lauren is certified in the Webster Technique and is also a certified BIRTHFIT Leader.

Benefits of Prenatal Care

Multiple research studies confirm that women who receive regular chiropractic care during pregnancy experience less pain, safer and easier births, and shorter labor times. They also require fewer interventions.

The Webster Technique is a specific analysis and adjustment to help restore nervous system function and pelvic balance through surrounding muscles, ligaments, and bones. This can result in decreased uterine torsion and allow for optimal fetal position.

The Fourth Trimester

Birth is a magical experience, but it is also a trauma for both Mom and Baby. Chiropractic care is important to adapt to all the changes involved with pregnancy. New mothers are healing while taking care of their new child, and we want to help facilitate a smooth and healthy transition into parenthood.
