Prenatal Chiropractic Helps to Optimize Pregnancy

Pregnancy Chiropractor West HavenDuring pregnancy, the body activates a hormone called relaxin. This chemical prepares the body for the birthing process, allowing the pelvic floor to expand in preparation for the baby’s arrival.

However, because this powerful hormone begins to be released around the 16th week of pregnancy, it creates a situation where structural shifts start to occur. These changes are most notably seen in the low back, pelvis and hips, leading to the development of chronic discomfort for moms-to-be.

It’s important for the pelvis to be properly aligned, particularly during the birthing process. Without optimal pelvic balance, the delivery process is often slowed down and impacted, sometimes requiring unwanted intervention.

Through gentle prenatal chiropractic, overall nerve function in the body is maximized, creating a more comfortable pregnancy and an easier, quicker labor for Mom.
