Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe and drug-free approach to helping with pains and aches while maintaining your health during this changing time.
Common conditions of pregnancy that respond to chiropractic care
 Lower back pain
Sacroiliac joint problems
 Mid-back and neck pains
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Groin and leg pains
Scientific studies suggest that women who have chiropractic care during their pregnancies have:
 Less back pain and discomfort.
Shorter labour. Chiropractic care was shown to shorten delivery times by 24% in the first pregnancy and 39% in later  pregnancies.
Significantly less back painduring labour.
If you are thinking of having a baby, a chiropractic evaluation can ensure that your spine and hips will be up to the challenges of 9 months of pregnancy and delivery. We will set you up on an appropriate strengthening and stretching exercise program, and suggest that you start taking a multi-vitamin now and increase your fruits, grains, vegetables, and high quality protein. Do not smoke or drink alcohol.
Studies show that 50% of women with chronic lower  back pain developed it after a pregnancy. Early chiropractic care and proper exercises can help restore your body.Because your body has endured 9 months of  postural changes and weight gain, coupled with the strain of delivery or C-section, the first 2 to 6 weeks after delivery are the best time to have your spine and pelvis checked.
To ensure the best start for your child, we provide a complete spinal and body evaluation for your newborn. Even though the best efforts of your midwife or doctor, your infant’s spine, particularly the neck, may be placed under stress during delivery. By using very gentle techniques, spinal problems can be corrected easily.

 Exercise Tips for the Pregnant Woman
 Avoid holding your breath.
 Avoid sudden changes in level or posture, such as standing up too quickly.
 Always keep your back in a neutral position, and include pelvic tilts whenever possible.
 Avoid long periods of lying on your back. Roll onto your side if your hands start to tingle.
 Always wear running shoes when you are exercising. In the house wear supportive shoes or sandals with a good arch.
Wear a strong supportive bra. Note the size may change putting pressure on your shoulders.
 Exercise within your target heart rate. Get help if you are unsure of this.
 Remember to lie down and stand up correctly.  By slightly squeezing your buttocks together and tightening your abdominal muscles you will move much easier.
Check for abdominal muscle separation regularly. Ask your chiropractor for details. If separation starts, don’t do abdominal exercises until instructed.
 Always bend one knee when on your back or have a pillow under the knees.
 In this case, pain means stop exercising.
 Eat some form of carbohydrate 1 –2 hours before your exercise class to prevent low blood sugar and light headedness or dizziness.
Take a break when you feel tired 
 If you feel pain in your pelvic/groin areas, do  pelvictilts on all fours (pelvic rocks).
