Elevate Wellness offers many chiropractic services for those of all ages. Pregnant women often don’t think about seeking chiropractic care, but the benefits of prenatal chiropractic care are too good to pass up. Chiropractic treatment helps the body to heal more naturally and maintain proper alignment.
During pregnancy, the body and organs tend to move around to make room for the fetus. This can cause pain and discomfort for many expecting mothers, especially during labor and birth. Elevate Wellness wants to help our clients know more about the specific benefits of prenatal chiropractic care.
Pregnant mothers turn to chiropractic treatment to help with pain and discomfort during pregnancy. Growing a human comes with the moving of organs and bones to help give the fetus to have room to move in the womb. Prenatal chiropractic care helps limit the pain of stretching and moving in the body.
While pain relief is a big factor in choosing chiropractic care, there are actually more benefits to proper alignment. Having chiropractic alignment can actually shorten labor times and help the labor and delivery process go much smoother. Mothers who have sought chiropractic treatment saw that they needed less assistance during labor, pelvic bones and spines were more aligned and less painful, and had average labor of about 4 hours.
Adjusting the spine and pelvis to their correct positions can give the baby more room to move and adapt in the womb. Chiropractic treatment can help the baby move into the pelvic bowl correctly and provide them with room to grow.
Other benefits that can come from prenatal chiropractic care include:
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Relieve neck, back, and joint pain
- Lowering potential of cesarean delivery
- Maintain a healthier pregnancy
When researching chiropractors and prenatal chiropractic care, look for one that is certified in Webster Technique. Dr. Simmonds with Elevate Chiropractic is Webster Technique Certified. This technique is a pre-natal chiropractic procedure that focuses on the pelvis and surrounding structures. This technique helps to support the growth and development of your baby and yields excellent results.
Is It Safe?
Visiting a chiropractor who is certified to work with pregnant women is safe and effective. Chiropractors have been trained to work specifically with pregnant women and have unique tables to accommodate protruding stomachs.
Prenatal chiropractic care techniques also focus pressure away from the abdomen and give exercises that are safe to perform during pregnancy. Stretches and exercises are known to help those who are pregnant and improve the quality of birth. Chiropractic can help amplify the good things that you are already doing.

Spinal misalignment can affect the growth of the child and the development of their nervous system.
