Pregnancy Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is one of the safest and healthiest things you can do for yourself and your unborn child – it’s completely natural and painless, facilitating the motion that’s meant to be in your spine. And when we reduce the stress on Mom, it helps baby have more mobility as well.

Healthy Pregnancy

Dr. Steve adjusting pregnant womanMany St. Peters area OBs refer their patients to us because gentle, caring chiropractic treatments from Dr. Steve and Dr. Julia at Schoenherr Chiropractic can:

  • provide pain relief and better sleep
  • help prepare the pelvis for delivery
  • facilitate getting the baby into the right position to be born as easily as possible (we offer Webster techniques for breech presentations)
  • reduce labor time
  • reduce the need for surgical intervention

As with other patients, we do a thorough exam to determine exactly where misalignments are. However, we do not X-ray pregnant women. We’ll make you as comfortable as possible with cushions for support and we’ll tell you exactly what’s happening every step of the way.

Effects of Hormones

As you get closer to your due date, your body releases hormones that increase motion in your spine and joints. This is what allows flexibility in the pelvis for delivery, but that increased motion makes it necessary to do more frequent adjustments to keep your body in alignment as your approach your due date. These same hormones are helpful after childbirth because your spine is still more malleable, so this is a good time to keep getting chiropractic care. We can restore motion and help make structural changes to facilitate easier, longer-lasting changes.
