The question is should pregnant women seek Chiropractic Care during their pregnancy? If you're looking for relief from aches and pain in a safe and natural way without harmful drugs, then the answer is YES.

A balanced pelvis allows the baby to have a greater chance of moving safely and naturally into the correct position for a comfortable delivery in a non-invasive way. Research suggests correct alignment during pregnancy of the pelvis and spine contributes to a more straightforward labor with less pain and trauma for both mommy and baby. Chiropractic postnatal care checkups after the delivery is also important because in some cases mommy's joints can come back together misaligned.
