Understand how Chiropractic makes pregnancy and delivery easier

 

A review of statistics reported that women who seek Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy have a 25%-31% shorter labour time, and are less likely to need assisted instrumentation during delivery (forceps, vacuum, emergency c-section…).

 

But, how?

The uterus is the “bag” in which the baby is going to form and develop. There are many ligaments that attach the uterus to the bones of the pelvis, holding the uterus in its correct position. During pregnancy the body goes through many rapid changes, and often women suffer distortions on the pelvis during the process. These small changes, which cannot be appreciated by the human eye, affect the tension on the ligaments.  When the tension on these ligaments is uneven, they start pulling the uterus into a different position, changing the shape of the uterus and causes it to be smaller and tighter in one side, therefore the baby has less space to move around.

 

Intrauterine constraint is defined as any force external to the developing fetus that obstructs the normal movement of the fetus. Chiropractor corrects the potential causes of intrauterine constraint. This is a common cause for breech babies not being able to turn around, they simply don’t have enough space.

 

Overall, Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help to

             Have an easier pregnancy and delivery

             Ensure the baby has a large and symmetrical space to develop in

             Reduce the pressure and stress on the back, and hips

             Avoid or reduce sciatica

             Reducing the risk of emergency caesarian
