Pregnancy and Postnatal Chiropractic

Greater comfort in pregnancy, preparation for birth and recovery afterwards. 

Prenatal chiropractic

There’s a new life growing inside you. It’s the most amazing, wonderful, awe-inspiring time of life.

But it’s not all glowing. Pregnancy hormones, a growing bump, a changed centre of gravity and the sometimes daunting prospect of birth and motherhood can all have an impact on your wellbeing.

Chiropractic care in pregnancy uses modified treatment techniques to accommodate your growing bump. I’m certified in the Webster Technique, a particular adjustment that improves your pelvic alignment for a more comfortable pregnancy and easier birth.

Pregnancy chiropractic can help you to feel more comfortable in your changing body by relieving:

  • Hip pain
  • Pelvis pain
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Nerve-related pain.

Seeing a chiropractor while pregnant may also help to improve your posture and prepare you for a healthy, active birth.

And there’s nothing quite so soothing as someone tending to your aches and pains each week. Every mum-to-be needs that!

Postnatal Chiropractic Care

Congratulations on your baby’s arrival!

Your body has just been through an immense experience in delivering your baby. And the changes are still happening as you recover from birth, start breastfeeding and cope with disrupted sleep.

Postnatal chiropractic care supports you through your fourth trimester, those critical months after your baby’s birth when you’re adjusting to a new way of life with ongoing physical changes.

You still have high levels of the relaxing hormone in your body, especially if you’re breastfeeding. That may cause ongoing instability in your spine, pelvis and other joints.

Postnatal chiropractic care can help you to:
  • Recover from birth
  • Align your spine and pelvis to improve your posture and comfort
  • Relieve joint pain
  • Improve your flexibility and mobility.
