Pregnancy Care

Since taking medication is not a preferred option, natural chiropractic care can address the discomfort, allowing you to enjoy the comfortable and healthy pregnancy you deserve.

Why Do I Need Care?

At Balanced Life Chiropractic, one thing we always try to highlight and have women remember is that the better you feel during your pregnancy, the better the baby feels. Being proactive in seeking care may reduce many of the symptoms you experience. Our goal is to get your body in an optimal state and maximum health, and get everything in the best alignment to make it easier for you to deliver your baby.

We use a special table which accommodates a woman’s belly, so you can be comfortable while receiving care. There’s no pressure on the baby; in fact, nothing our doctors do to adjust you can harm your baby. We never touch the child during your visit. Our doctors have extensive training to provide you with the care you deserve.

How We Help

Here are some ways chiropractic may help throughout the various stages:


Chiropractic care helps the body be as strong, supple, and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy.


Regular prenatal chiropractic care helps reduce back pain, sciatica, nausea, and other types of discomfort without the use of drugs.

Labor and Birth

Women tell us that chiropractic care throughout pregnancy helps reduce labor time and
decreases the need for interventions during the birth process.

After Birth

Natural births can place stress on you and the baby’s spine. That’s why we recommend you have you and your baby adjusted soon after giving birth. Our gentle adjustments for babies are done with about the same amount of pressure that’s used to check a tomato for ripeness. For the mother we are able to use many other techniques to accommodate you after the birthing process to free up any subluxations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will adjustments hurt my baby?

No, not at all. When you are pregnant the baby is very protected in the womb via the amniotic sac. If anything you might feel some fluttering or kicking from the baby getting excited after the adjustment due to getting more room to stretch out!

At what point in my pregnancy should I start receiving care?

Prenatal chiropractic can benefit you at every stage. The earlier you start, the more likely you’ll enjoy a comfortable pregnancy.

How does chiropractic help my unborn baby?

Not only does prenatal chiropractic care support your health, but it also helps support your unborn child’s health. We try to remind all pregnant mothers the better you feel the better the baby will feel as well!
