The months of pregnancy can be both the most joyous and the hardest for a woman. Most moms-to-be love the good times - hearing the baby's heartbeat for the first time and feeling the first kick. There may be baby showers and fun times with family and friends. But, there is also discomfort and pains that usually come with pregnancy. Moms may experience back pain, sore feet, and other body pains. Is there any way to get relief? Yes! Getting prenatal chiropractic care early in your pregnancy and continuing it throughout can help make it a more pleasant experience. Proficient Chiropractic offers excellent prenatal chiropractic services in St. Louis and Overland, MO.
Is it Safe?
Yes, our chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women. Prenatal chiropractic care is safe and has many benefits, including experiencing a healthier pregnancy and ensuring the baby is born at a healthy weight.
Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Prenatal care by a chiropractor offers benefits to both you and your baby. The growing baby in your belly has put weight and pressure on your body that it doesn't usually experience. You may be experiencing back pain, hip pain, neck pain, and just general joint pain because the baby has changed your body's center of gravity. And as the baby grows, these pains can increase if left untreated.
Our chiropractor helps you regain pelvic balance and alignment, which means less back pain. And this realignment also helps put the baby in a good birthing position, which can mean an easier delivery for you as it gives the baby a better path through the birth canal. In addition, this alignment can reduce the chances of breech birth.
What to Expect
Our chiropractor uses non-invasive techniques to move your body with gentle stretches. These stretches help give you relief from aches and pains. Massage can also be included as part of prenatal chiropractic care, making you feel more relaxed and less stressed about the pregnancy.
Our chiropractor may also talk to you about proper diet and nutrition. Getting the right amount of vitamins during pregnancy is vital for both you and the baby. A decrease in sugar helps you maintain a good pregnancy weight. In addition, we stress the importance of drinking enough water and staying hydrated during pregnancy. This nutritional counseling can help you avoid nausea often associated with pregnancy.
