Prenatal Care Q & A

What is prenatal care?

Prenatal care is the health care you receive while you’re pregnant. Early and routine prenatal care provides you with the information and resources you need to keep yourself and your baby as healthy as possible.

When you’re pregnant, your body requires special care to prevent or manage complications. Babies whose mothers get regular prenatal care are about three times more likely to have a healthy birth weight and five times more likely to have a full-term, live birth.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Your body goes through many physiological and hormonal changes during pregnancy. These changes can lead to common symptoms and conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Swollen feet
  • Poor posture
  • Difficulty sleeping

Establishing proper alignment and a healthy balance in your spine and hips can provide you with relief from these problems and create an ideal space for your baby to grow. Pelvic misalignment may reduce the space available for your developing baby, a condition called intrauterine constraint.

Without enough space, your baby may not be able to move into the ideal position for natural childbirth (head down). In addition to helping your baby move into the best position, chiropractic care during pregnancy offers the following benefits:

  • Relieving back, neck, or joint pain
  • Reducing the need for a cesarean delivery
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing labor and delivery time

Regular ongoing chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy may also support your overall health and wellness. When you’re feeling good, your mood is elevated, which improves your overall pregnancy experience.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy. The experienced team at Northview Medical received specialized training to be able to provide chiropractic care during pregnancy. Your specialist uses techniques to minimize pressure on your abdomen and may use a chiropractic table that accommodates your pregnancy.

What are the benefits of pediatric chiropractic care?

Like adults and pregnant women, children can also benefit from chiropractic care to improve general health and treat common pediatric conditions. The experienced team at Northview Medical uses special chiropractic techniques for their pediatric patients to improve joint alignment, which restores balance and health.

Pediatric conditions that benefit from chiropractic care include:

  • Ear infections
  • Attention-deficit, hyperactivity disorder
  • Asthma
  • Bed-wetting
  • Birth trauma
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Common cold

Pediatric chiropractic care also helps with the aches and pains for children and teens involved in sports.
