Some experts even recommend that pregnant women have at least one routine chiropractic visit during their pregnancy. Chiropractors that have been trained in working with pregnant women will be sure not to put any unneeded pressure on the abdomen, and will keep both mom and baby very comfortable and safe.

3 What Will Happen?

During a normal pregnancy chiropractic visit, the doctor will look for imbalances or misalignments in the pelvis, abdomen and other body parts. Chiropractic doctors can help manipulate the body in ways that will alleviate aches and pains, and can even lead to a shorter and healthier labor later in pregnancy.

Some experts even believe that regular chiropractic care can reduce the need for a cesarean section. In some cases, chiropractors can even help to turn a baby around and prevent a breech delivery.
