Maternal Stress and Chiropractic Care

Pregnancy is an exciting period for parents, especially the mother. However, physical and hormonal changes can leave the expectant mother feeling uncomfortable, tired, and overwhelmed. Chiropractic care for pregnant women helps optimize their health throughout the journey and ensures that the childbirth process is comfortable and free of unnecessary complications.

At Cornerstone Chiropractic in Everett, WA, our pregnancy chiropractor combines several therapeutic techniques to improve wellness during pregnancy. Here are a few ways our chiropractic care services can help ease your pregnancy journey.

The Vertebral Column

A pregnant woman’s spine and pelvis undergo several postural changes to provide enough space for fetal growth and development. However, the changes subsequently interfere with the mother’s nervous system. A chiropractor helps reduce stress in the musculoskeletal and nervous systems to create a balance in the uterus and pelvis for optimal function and coordination.

Baby Development

Chiropractic adjustments and muscle manipulations help promote healthy child development and appropriately align the baby for childbirth. Additionally, a trained chiropractor can align the baby’s spine and ensure safe delivery.

Promotes Relaxation

Some expectant mothers experience insomnia during pregnancy due to anxiety and other motherhood concerns. Our chiropractor uses massage therapy techniques to help ease muscular tension in the mother and even treat constipation. Regular chiropractic adjustments also promote blood and oxygen circulation in the body, treat depression, and minimize mood swings and nausea in pregnant women.

Milk Production and Breastfeeding

Pregnancy and childbirth can be a great source of stress and trauma for mother and baby. However, regular baby wellness services and chiropractic adjustments can help milk production and ease breastfeeding.

Reduce Back Pain

Backaches are a common health concern for expectant mothers. The developing baby stresses the mother’s back throughout the pregnancy, shifting the spine out of alignment, leading to back pain and other complications. The chiropractor uses various targeted manual techniques to correct vertebral issues, extensively promoting stress relief and easing the pregnancy journey.
