How Does Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Affect the Baby?
The baby is not affected when women receive chiropractic care during their pregnancy. When a woman is pregnant, they may have a whole host of symptoms like back pain, neck pain, nausea, chronic exhaustion, and headache along with many others. These are the type of symptoms that leave patients desperate for fast relief — however, many women are hesitant to take medications for these problems when a more natural treatment is available. The VIDA Chiropractic Studio chiropractor can do a gentle adjustment which has no impact at all on the child. This alignment can allow for fast relief that is also completely safe for the growing baby.
How Does Chiropractic Care Affect Labor and Delivery?
Women who have regular care from a Denver chiropractor during their pregnancy tend to have easier labor and delivery. Many patients report that their labor and delivery was much shorter and smoother than they had imagined — and they often say that chiropractic care is what made the difference. Chiropractic care may also help expectant moms to approach their labor with more confidence, as they know that they’ve done everything possible to prepare the body in a natural way.
What About Chiropractic During the Fourth Trimester?
Many women receive Denver chiropractic care during the “fourth trimester.” Having chiropractic adjustments after the baby is delivered can help in restoring the spine to the proper balance again. It may even be helpful in regaining the pre-pregnancy body faster. Chiropractic care is also safe and effective for newborn babies. In fact, many moms bring their newborns in for their very first adjustments at the same time that they come in for their own regular adjustment post delivery.

Pregnancy Care Q&A
Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?
Undergoing gentle chiropractic procedures during pregnancy is completely safe and, even beneficial, in the hands of an experienced, board certified practitioner like Dr. Evans. Many women opt to receive adjustments late into their pregnancies to aide in the movement of their baby’s head down into position for a vaginal childbirth. According to the American Pregnancy Association, chiropractic care during pregnancy may also reduce the time of labor and delivery. In addition, after delivery, many women also find great advantages in continuing chiropractic adjustments to help transition back to their post-pregnancy bodies.
What are the benefits of undergoing chiropractic procedures during pregnancy?
In addition to other changes that occur during pregnancy, a woman’s gait and posture change as a result of the increasing size of her abdomen. This can cause stress on the musculoskeletal system. As the woman’s center of gravity changes, she compensates (usually unconsciously) for these changes. Hormones can also affect the musculoskeletal system. These changes can result in back pain that can not be treated by pain medication or anti-inflammatory drugs and other conventional treatments.
Will chiropractic care help with my nausea?
Nausea is a common symptom of pregnancy. Some women experience it only during their first trimester, while others endure it for all nine months. Many find relief in chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments that keep a woman’s spine and pelvis properly aligned can ease upset stomachs and nausea due to morning sickness.
How will I be positioned during chiropractic adjustments while I am pregnant?
Specific accommodations are made depending on trimester, and the specific adjustments being performed. Dr. Evans has extensive experience caring for women throughout all stages of pregnancy. He uses an adjustable table, in which tension can be decreased, enabling pregnant patients to even lay comfortably on their stomach, if necessary.
