Pregnancy is an exciting time for your growing family as you await the arrival of your newborn. However, pregnancy changes more than just your lifestyle. During your pregnancy, you are also experiencing a large number of physical changes as your baby develops. These physical changes can alter the alignment of your joints and spine, and ultimately affect all areas of your body.
While these changes are a normal part of pregnancy, that doesn’t mean you have to live with the discomfort. Through ongoing chiropractic care, you can maintain proper alignment throughout pregnancy for improved comfort for both you and your baby.

What Are The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
As your baby develops, your body undergoes many changes. Many of these changes will have an affect on your body’s alignment. Even simple adjustments can have a dramatic impact on the overall comfort you experience during your pregnancy. A trained chiropractor can help correct misalignment caused by:
- Curving of the Spine. As your baby grows and develops, your belly gradually extends farther out in front of you. To compensate for this and maintain balance, your spine has to extend backward. This change in shape can result in restricted movement and discomfort. Keeping your spine in proper alignment can help relieve some of the stress caused by these changes.
- Pelvic Changes. A misaligned pelvis can reduce the amount of space available for your growing baby. Misalignment of the pelvis can also prevent your baby from getting into the best position for delivery, affecting your ability to have a natural birth. By maintaining proper pelvic alignment, your chiropractor can help make delivery more comfortable for both you and your baby.
Using a specialized analysis and adjustment process known as the Webster Technique, Dr. Bomberg is able to help you establish better pelvic balance and reduce stress on your body. The Webster Technique has been clinically shown to facilitate optimal fetal positioning during pregnancy and prior to delivery, resulting in a more comfortable pregnancy and birth for both mother and child.
Chiropractic Care Following Childbirth.
The need for specialized chiropractic care isn’t limited to pregnant women. Pregnancy and delivery can result in misalignment, leading to longer recovery following childbirth. Following your pregnancy, chiropractic care can help you return back to proper alignment and normal health. Improved alignment and overall comfort will help you feel your best so you can focus on your new baby.
Chiropractic care offers a variety of benefits for pregnant women, as well as their babies. By supporting a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy, and improving pelvic alignment prior to delivery, both mother and child can experience healthier outcomes.
