Prenatal Chiropractic Care | My Personal Experience

Maybe you’ve heard how chiropractic care can help you with back pain. Maybe you’ve even heard that it can be beneficial to your immune system. Both of those things are true. But did you also know that it can be an amazing way to prepare your body for birth? After birth, it can get your body and your baby on the right track for a healthy immune system. Not to mention, a great postpartum experience. I’d love to share my personal experience with pre- and postnatal chiropractic care and why I prioritize it.

After the birth of my first son, I started to go back over the events of our labor and thinking through what I could do differently with future pregnancies. Of course, some was out of my control and often times first labors are just long. But I also believe that my baby’s position was a huge factor. This led me to prenatal chiropractic care and how it can help get baby into an ideal position for birth, potentially making your labor much easier and straight-forward.

How chiropractic care helped me

Skipping ahead a few years to finding out that I was pregnant with our second child. I knew chiropractic care was something I wanted to prioritize. I found an amazing Webster Certified chiropractor in our area and started getting adjustments every week. Short term, it helped ease some back and pelvic pain during pregnancy. Long term it got my baby into the perfect position in my uterus. And guess what?! His birth was much easier and simpler than my first. It was everything I’d hoped for!

As we near the end of this third pregnancy, I’m so grateful for the chiropractic care we’ve continued to receive for years. When we were originally quarantined because of Covid, I chose not to go for a few weeks. But after missing several weeks of adjustments, I knew I had to prioritize this again. I’m grateful for the precautions they are taking at Village Family Chiropractic (local friends, check them out!) and how they welcomed me back with open arms. I will definitely share this baby’s birth story once they’re here. I’m confident that my chiropractic care will help so much with this labor!
