Pregnancy is a time of rapid physical change, for you as well as your baby. Pre-existing imbalances in your spine and pelvis that you’ve never noticed before can become overtaxed as the baby grows and your center of gravity shifts. These added pressures can make it hard to feel comfortable just getting through routine daily activities.
Gentle and safe chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy restores balance and movement to your pelvic joints, ligaments, and muscles and allows your body to adapt to the tremendous changes of pregnancy.
Keeping your nervous system free of stress and connecting with your breath and natural rhythms are also a tremendous aid in preparation for the birth process. Women receiving regular adjustments throughout pregnancy not only experience a more comfortable pregnancy, but routinely have a safer, easier birth with less complications for you and your baby.
Dr. Cantwell is trained and certified in the Webster Technique to help prevent or alleviate breech presentation. Specific chiropractic adjustments align the pelvic structures and release pressure on the soft tissues, including the round ligament which reduce intra uterine constraint, creating space so the baby can move on its own into a head down position. The Webster Technique complements other methods that your doctor may perform to change the position of the baby.
