5 Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

A chiropractor probably isn’t the first thing you think of when you’re looking for prenatal care. But, prenatal chiropractic care has fantastic benefits for not only your body before labor, but during and after your labor as well. At Natural Life Chiropractic in Omaha, we will take care of you and your baby, giving you 5 amazing benefits for all stages of your pregnancy.

 

  1. Sleep Better

Sleeping while you’re pregnant, especially during your second and third trimesters, can be difficult and frustrating. With Natural Life Chiropractic in Omaha, we can help you learn the best and most proper sleep posture techniques, so you can get a great night’s sleep. Our readjustments and consultations can help improve improper posture while laying in bed, reducing restlessness and pain.

 

  1. Reduce Nausea

Morning sickness, rightfully so, is infamously the most talked about symptom of pregnancy. Many women have significantly reduced their nausea using holistic options, like chiropractic care. The Chiropractors at Natural Life realign the spine, balancing hormones within the nervous system, leading to less nausea and addressing other digestive issues, like constipation.

 

  1. Improved Flexibility and Posture

Improved flexibility will help in avoiding injuries from stress and bad posture. At Natural Life Chiropractic in Omaha, we will help adjust your body to it’s optimal state, helping improve posture and avoiding long-term back pain. Women’s bodies change significantly during pregnancy, so improving the way your body adapts to change will help in avoiding all types of injuries, including spinal, pelvic and hip injuries.

 

  1. Composed Labor and Delivery

Chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy can help your labor and delivery be smoother, more composed, and overall, easier. At Natural Life Chiropractic in Omaha, we offer adjustments to properly align your spine, pelvis and hips. This helps maintain a proper pelvic balance, helping your baby position itself in the most comfortable place possible. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics conducted a study which reported a 92% success rate of turning babies from breech position. Chiropractic care can also help women control their contractions easier through ensuring nerves are properly functioning. 

 

  1. An Overall Healthier Pregnancy

A healthier woman leads to a healthier pregnancy and a healthier baby. Chiropractors aid in reducing inflammation, nerve obstructions, and contribute to a stronger immune system, helping your overall health in a holistic and non-invasive way.
