Prenatal & Postnatal Chiropractic
Pregnancy and Adjustments
More and more women are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy. The most common complaint where women seek chiropractic care in pregnancy is for low back pain. As more women utilize chiropractic care they are noticing additional benefits to chiropractic care in pregnancy.
During pregnancy your body produces hormones to relax your ligaments; without these, your baby's head would never be able to fit through your pelvis. But those hormones, combined with your gorgeously swollen belly, can leave you loose-limbed, sway-backed, and unusually clumsy, due to a rapidly lowering center of gravity (Look out below!). All of this can do quite a number on your spine.
Chiropractic care may be able to undo much of this damage and get your lower body in proper alignment for an easier birth. Some chiropractors also claim that chiropractic adjustments can reduce the likelihood of miscarriage, control morning sickness, and lower your risk of pre-term delivery. The chiropractor's ability to realign and, in many cases, relax the ligaments and muscles in your pelvis has led to what is now known as the Webster Technique, a method that helps breech babies to turn themselves, naturally.

This is her second pregnancy, but her first pregnancy while receiving Chiropractic Care. This is what she had to say about her care at Generation Chiropractic!
Why did you first come to see Dr. Herndon?
My husband suggested I get a check on my spine to see if there was any issues.
How has Chiropractic changed your life?
After my first adjustment I knew my life was going to be completely different. My husband, myself and our 2 year old daughter all get adjusted once a week and have seen a huge improvement in our overall health. After about a year of seeing Dr. Herndon and bringing my family to see her we found out we were expecting our second child! I was a bit skeptical to continue care during my pregnancy but Dr. Herndon explained the numerous benefits and how it would help with pregnancy and labor so I decided to continue. I have been amazed at how different my second pregnancy has been due to Chiropractic, I am so much more comfortable, I've been ale to continue my job as a nurse all through my pregnancy without any issues and I have had no headaches during my second pregnancy like I did with my first! I am excited to see how different my labor will be this time around, and to get my new born son checked by Dr. Herndon!
