Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy

This is a very special time for you and your family. It is also an important time to be proactive in managing your health for an optimum pregnancy, labour and birth.

We care for pregnant mums. Your baby’s development is being influenced by everything you are experiencing right now. Your mood, diet, activity level, health and your environment are already helping to shape the person your baby is going to become. We are passionate about helping babies enter the world in the most stress-free manner possible. We love to help and guide you and your baby through the stages of pregnancy, birth, infancy, childhood and beyond. We want the best for our children and yours too.

The benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy

Our goal is to make sure that your body is strong, healthy and able to adapt and sustain the changes and pressures of pregnancy and childbirth, and to ensure the perfect environment for your baby to develop.
Likewise, managing a healthy maternal diet, reduced exposure to chemicals and pollutants and reduced stress are important as research indicates these can impact the infant microbiome, immune system and neuro-development of your baby during pregnancy.
There are many concerns throughout pregnancy and birth that our chiropractors have been able to assist pregnant mothers with. We see pregnant mums with conditions such as:

  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic and pubic pain
  • Heartburn and indigestion
  • Intrauterine constraint
  • Foetal positioning
  • Reduced labour time due to correct pelvic alignment

How we can support you through your pregnancy

Our skilled chiropractors understand the important and individual journey of pregnancy and birth. They are qualified and experienced, and absolutely love assisting women to gain their optimum pregnancy and birth. Our team focuses on providing physical, nutritional and emotional care to support pregnant women and their babies. They use safe, gentle and evidence-based techniques to ensure a mother’s body is functioning optimally. We also continue to monitor growth and development of your baby after birth and at many milestones along the way such as holding their head up, sitting, crawling, standing and walking.

  • arm, hand and shoulder pain
  • hip, leg, foot or ankle pain

Neuro-Development Assessments

Neuro-Development Assessments can identify retained primitive (neonatal) reflexes, gross and fine motor difficulties, visual and auditory processing concerns. The assessment is a low stress session for your little one. We use standardised tests involving;

  • balance
  • coordination
  • muscle strength
  • neurology

These tests can help us identify any anomalies that may affect your child’s ability to process and respond appropriately to sensory stimuli that they see, hear and feel.
Our chiropractors take you and your child through a thorough history as well as perform a comprehensive chiropractic, orthopaedic and neurological exam.
