Why Should I Have Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
Pregnancy is a tumultuous time for your body, both internally and externally. You experience a huge amount of change over the nine months, with countless new demands and challenges your body has to meet. You need proper prenatal care and treatment to keep your body in proper order and alignment. Chiropractic care will help you to maintain proper balance and alignment for your pelvis, which is crucial to your pelvic health.
Pelvic misalignment could end up minimising the space the fetus has within the uterus. Known as intrauterine constraint, a misaligned pelvis and compromised uterus may hinder the baby’s ability to have the maximum amount of room to develop and best position itself for delivery. It can eventually affect your body’s ability to experience a natural birth and avoid a c-section, or surgical, delivery.
Pregnancy triggers several physiological and endocrinological (hormonal) changes in your body, as preparation to create the perfect prenatal environment for developing and nurturing a healthy fetus. If not carefully monitored and cared for, these changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints.
A fetus has a better shot at moving into the correct position for birth when your pelvis is properly balanced and aligned pelvis. Seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy can enable this to happen. Receiving proper chiropractic attention and treatment can also reduce the chance of encountering dystocia (difficult labor). When the fetus’s position within the womb is optimal at the time of birth, the result is a safer and smoother delivery. There is a reduced potential for complications for both the mother and child.

What Our Clients Say
"Before trying out Light Chiropractic, I went to another Chiropractor for my visits. Light Chiropractic has brought me a healthy baby boy. Reaching to my 40s, I was reluctant in whether I could do it or not. Dr. Theo’s reassurance gave me confidence. I decided to do a totally natural birth without epidural or any painkillers. The birth went fine and I am completely happy. Dr. Theo even checked my son and lightly adjusted him. For anyone interested in Chiropractic care, please try this place. Chiropractic is safe for pregnancy and baby." -KLAIRE ONG
