Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care 

At Midwest Chiropractic & Wellness, we understand the importance of a healthy pregnancy. We strive to educate and guide you through all the phases of your pregnancy. We want you to be able to have the birth experience that you have imagined. 

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic adjustments offers gentle non-invasive benefits for expecting mothers to create balance in the pelvis and spine. When moms are balanced their bodies better manage stress,  and their bodies are able to adapt to the changes occurring throughout pregnancy. Dramatic physical, mental, and emotional changes throughout pregnancy can cause increased spinal column and nervous system stress. A prenatal chiropractor, like Dr. Jenny, will find where the pelvis and spine are unbalanced and increased muscle tension (stress) and correct it, allowing you function more optimally. A well balance spinal column typically doesn’t have symptoms.

Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic

  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  • Controlling Symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
  • Preventing potential C-section
  • Relieving back and neck joint pain
  • Encourages optimal fetal position through proper pelvic alignment
  • Improve posture

Webster Technique 

The Webster technique is a technique used by chiropractors to reduce the tension and torsion in the uterus which could ultimately affect progression of labor, optimal fetal positioning, and a natural pregnancy and birth.

“…improvement of their intra-uterine constraint”
In another study, 69% of 81 patients that received chiropractic care because of intra-uterine constraint benefited from chiropractic care. Because chiropractic adjustments can help balance the pelvis and uterus by increase structural and nerve function, the women in the study showed improvement of their intra-uterine constraint after chiropractic adjustments.
