Prenatal Care

 Prenatal Care

Being pregnant can be a very joyous time in one's life
but it can also be a time of physical and emotional stress.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy and after delivery can be beneficial for not only the mother, but for the baby as well.

Here are some FAQs:

Why should I have chiropractic care during pregnancy? 
There are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur during and after pregnancy. The additional weight in the front of the body can cause the back to curve and the pelvic region is forced to make changes for the delivery. Keeping your spine aligned and correcting misalignments of the pelvis will make the delivery less difficult for you and the baby.

What are the overall benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy? 
Chiropractic care relieves pain in your back, neck and joints, helps control nausea, reduces labor and delivery time, and helps to prevent a potential cesarean section. All of these benefits are great for the mother, but your baby will experience less stress as well.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe during pregnancy?
Absolutely! Chiropractors have been trained to work with pregnant women to avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen. Dr. Walsh has also been trained in the Webster Technique. In The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (July/August 2002), they reported an 82% success rate of babies turning when chiropractors use this technique.

Still not sure if chiropractic care is right for you?
Please give Walsh Family Chiropractic a call. We will be happy to answer any of your questions or concerns.

Testimonial

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy was the best choice I ever made! I had a quick and easy delivery and feel so much better this time than with my first child. My one-week old was adjusted by Dr. Walsh and I noticed a difference in nursing him and his overall state of being that very afternoon. I recommend Dr. Walsh to every pregnant person I know! It really does make a difference."
