Many patients who choose midwives as their birth care providers are planning a natural birth, which can sometimes become compromised by round ligament pain, pubic symphysis dysfunction, general back and pelvic discomfort during pregnancy or labor.
We appreciate the unique needs of the pregnant patient.
By gently correcting structural shifts of the spine and pelvis and optimizing the alignment of these structures, most patients see relief or even elimination of these secondary conditions.
Some providers may associate chiropractic care with procedures that utilize a great deal of force, however we utilize only gentle, low-force and instrument-based techniques and absolutely NO X-RAY on our pregnant patients.
Additionally, the use of durable memory foam pregnancy pillows allow our pregnant patients to safely and comfortably lie prone on our tables all throughout their pregnancy.
There is also some evidence to suggest that normalizing pelvic alignment during pregnancy may reduce tension on the uteropelvic ligaments, reducing uterine torsion and thereby reducing structural barriers that may potentially limit the ability of the fetus to maneuver into proper vertex position. As you're undoubtedly aware, fetal position can be a major contributor to unwanted cesarean sections.
However, rest assured that our focus is always on the spinal and pelvic alignment of the pregnant patient, never on assessing or altering fetal position.
