West Coast Chiropractic Center is a time of many transformations in the body. It can be physically, chemically and emotionally challenging as the mother’s body adapts to the growing fetus. Many women seek out prenatal chiropractors to ease discomfort, prepare for birth and enhance nervous system function. Prenatal chiropractic focuses on the spine and pelvis to alleviate pain, relieve pressure and prepare the body for delivery.
Seeing a prenatal chiropractor can help relieve back and neck pain, as well as headaches and nausea. This is because spinal manipulations and adjustments can correct misalignments that cause the body to produce hormones that may cause nausea. It also helps balance the musculoskeletal system to relieve the pressure on the muscles, ligaments and joints.

Another benefit of prenatal chiropractic is reducing the chance that the baby will be in a breech position, which can lead to a longer and more complicated labor and delivery. Prenatal chiropractors are trained in the Webster Technique, which is an analysis and adjustment technique that helps ensure proper pelvic alignment to reduce the likelihood of a breech pregnancy.
Prenatal chiropractic is an excellent complement to other health-care strategies for a healthy pregnancy, a healthy body and a positive experience during childbirth. Women who receive regular care are better able to deal with the discomforts of pregnancy, and they report shorter labors and deliveries. They are also more likely to be able to choose natural methods of labor and delivery. This can be especially helpful for first-time mothers who are unsure of what to expect from the birthing process.
