Pregnancy Chiropractic at Hanson Family Chiropractic

Mother and baby at office visitA comfortable pregnancy. The healthy birth you dream of having. If that sounds appealing to you, we can help you achieve those goals. At Hanson Family Chiropractic, we provide excellent care to expecting moms. We want you to not only get rid of any aches or pains but experience the other incredible benefits of chiropractic, such as shorter labor times. Yes, we just said that! Plus, we seek to empower you, ensuring that you have control over getting the birth experience you want.

Safe, Effective Care

Dr. Hanson is certified in the Webster Technique for pregnant women. During pregnancy, chiropractic is one of the safest choices you can make for you and your baby. Most women seek us out because they have back pain, round ligament pain, sciatica or all three. It makes sense that as your center of gravity moves forward, your body is going to change, which will result in discomfort if left unaddressed.

During your adjustment, we have pregnancy pillows that accommodate your growing belly while allowing you to lie facedown on our adjusting tables, which moms know is such a treat, particularly as pregnancy advances! Each visit is an educational experience, too. We’ll give you valuable tips and advice, like how to get out of bed with ease as your belly grows.

If you’re in constant pain, it’s pretty tough to think straight. Your body makes incredible shifts during your nine months of pregnancy. When you relieve your pain with chiropractic, you’ll be more likely to stay in control during your pregnancy and in the birthing process. With the additional benefit of fewer interventions required during birth, you’ll have more choices about how you want your labor to proceed.

We always base your care on your unique needs. Your current condition, stage of pregnancy and goals will be kept in mind with any recommendations we make for you. Typically, pregnant moms see us more often at the beginning of care, then decrease over time. Throughout your pregnancy, we’ll usually see you about once a week.

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment. The doctor determines misalignment of the sacrum. A light force is applied to the sacrum for correction.

The adjustment is gentle, very safe and effective in establishing pelvic alignment.

Proper alignment of the pelvis allows for a safer and more comfortable birth for mom and baby.

A Webster-certified doctor has had additional training and achieved certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).

Do chiropractors turn babies?

Although chiropractors do not turn breech babies, they can gently and specifically adjust the mother’s spine and pelvis into proper alignment. This reestablishes normal physiological function and allows the baby to find the best possible position for the birthing process.

When is the best time to start care?

Due to the effects of the hormone relaxin and its contribution to sacral instability, it is beneficial to start care as soon as possible. The female body changes rapidly during pregnancy. Chiropractic allows these changes to be integrated into the body with ease.

Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?

Yes, it is very safe. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug-free discipline. Your prenatal chiropractor will use special techniques or table modifications to avoid any unnecessary pressure on the abdomen.
