Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Stoughton

Child with Head on Mom's Pregnant BellyDid you know that chiropractic care during pregnancy is not only safe but can help moms-to-be have an optimal pregnancy and a smoother labor and delivery?

Here are some of the many benefits of chiropractic during pregnancy:

  • Improves sleep
  • Helps to keep the pelvis in proper alignment
  • Improves comfort

“If the mother is more educated and has less fear then her body mechanically can relax and do what it’s supposed to do. As a result, her baby has a better chance to come out with ease,” says Dr. Mary Connors.

How Often Should I Come in for Care?

Though you can come in at any point during your pregnancy to begin care, ideally you would come in as soon as you find out you’re pregnant. You still can enjoy benefits regardless of when you start care.

What Can I Expect During an Appointment?

Dr. Connors will check you and see which of the six Zone analysis systems (glandular, eliminative, nerve, digestive, muscular and circulatory) we’re working on and give you a chiropractic adjustment accordingly. She’ll also suggest some reading or support material to help you have a greater labor and delivery.

Webster Technique-certified

The Webster Technique was founded by Dr. Larry Webster (a chiropractor) and has been used with much success to help a birthing mother have a more successful outcome. The sacrum is analyzed for malpositon or distortion. Because the sacrum is enriched with nerve supply to the uterus, it is important that it is in an optimal position, allowing nerve flow to do its job, encouraging optimum function to the surrounding tissue, organs, and muscles.

A more clinical term would be helping to restore neurobiomechanical balance of the pelvis with a sacral adjustment. This is not considered a “breech turning technique”, or an “in-utero constraint technique.” If your baby is in the breech position, Dr. Connors will use the Webster Technique to check your pelvis, looking for restrictions in the tissue. She will then release those restrictions, so the muscles in your pelvis will be able to relax. Those muscles know which way to turn the baby.
