Prenatal Care

It is essential that expectant mothers receive the highest quality and most appropriate supplementation to optimize their health and that of their growing baby, in addition to supporting the nervous system and structures of the pelvis through chiropractic care. Dr. Shaw is certified in the Webster Technique, a specialized chiropractic analysis and adjustment that allows the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.

Benefits of chiropractic care for the unborn child:

  • Removes interference to the mother’s nerve system
  • Permits unobstructed development of the baby
  • Removes intrauterine constraint
  • Gives the baby the room to develop without restrictions to its forming skeletal structures.
  • Offers the baby the room to move into the best possible position for birth.
  • Reduces potential birth trauma caused by emergency intervention if labor is difficult or prolonged.

Benefits of chiropractic care for the pregnant mother:

  • Prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth
  • Creates balance in pelvic bony structures, muscles and ligaments
  • Relieves back and neck discomfort/pain during pregnancy
  • Removes tension on the ligaments that support the uterus
  • Reduces torsion (intrauterine constraint) to the uterus
  • Reduces interference to the mother’s vital nerve system which controls and coordinates all of her systems and functions.
  • With proper fetal positioning, there is significant decrease in difficult labor (dystocia)
  • Allows for a safer, easier labor and delivery for both mother and child
  • Decreases the need for medical intervention during childbirth
  • Reduces the length of labor
