Pregnancy Care Q & A

What is chiropractic pregnancy care?

Chiropractic pregnancy care involves supporting both mother and unborn baby by ensuring a comfortable pregnancy and a safer, easier birth. At Brooklyn Chiropractic Studio, that includes various techniques designed to relax the uterine ligaments, create optimal pelvic alignment, and support the nervous system.

Some women may opt for chiropractic care even before they conceive, in anticipation of the changes having a baby will bring to their bodies. You can benefit from chiropractic pregnancy care before, during, and after your pregnancy.

Dr. Megan uses the Webster technique to create pelvic balance in pregnant women. With her advanced certifications in Webster technique and SOT, you will find her ability to care for women during and after pregnancy unmatched my most in her field.

What happens at my appointment?

During your first visit, Dr. Megan spends about an hour with you to gain a thorough understanding of your health and your specific pregnancy concerns. That involves gathering crucial information about your medical history, lifestyle, and desired outcomes.

Your first visit includes a complete chiropractic exam and a chiropractic adjustment.

After your initial appointment, you meet with Dr. Megan again to discuss a comprehensive care plan. Aside from providing chiropractic care, she recommends lifestyle, dietary, or holistic care strategies to help support your healing process.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Chiropractic care perfectly complements your traditional healthcare plan during this wonderful time in your life. Women often experience incredible benefits when they opt to include chiropractic care as part of their pregnancy plan. Some of these include:

  • Reduced likelihood of dystocia, interventions, or other pregnancy complications
  • Lowered stress levels, which benefit both mother and baby
  • Less pain, especially in the pelvic region and low back
  • A faster delivery
  • Fewer symptoms of nausea
  • Reduced pain in the back, neck, or joints
  • Removal of uterine strain for optimal positioning of the baby

Since chiropractic care also helps support the health of the nervous system, you may experience more balanced hormones and fewer mood-related pregnancy symptoms.
