Pregnancy Chiropractor Colorado Springs

Pregnant woman standing adjustmentWhen you’re expecting, you might think that discomfort is inevitable. You have hormones flooding your body to prepare you for labor, making your ligaments lax and muscles tight. Your weight distribution also has changed. The result? Low back pain, sciatica, mid-back pain and headaches. Many will likely have sleep difficulties, labored breathing or chronic fatigue.

These are just a few of the many problems that can be addressed through care at Freedom Chiropractic.

When you’re expecting, the better aligned your spine and pelvis are, the greater chance your body has at allowing your baby to develop optimally and for you to have successful labor and delivery.

Safe & Gentle Care

One of the most common questions we get from expectant mothers: “Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?” We answer with a resounding yes! It’s not only safe, but it’s also effective and we have so many different techniques that it might not be your old school “rack and crack” type of adjustment. Prenatal chiropractic is always safe, comfortable and more specific.

The Care You Need During Pregnancy

Your care will be tailored to your needs. For example, if you’re an existing patient and become pregnant, we may not change your care schedule. If you’re new to us, you may need to see us 2-3 times a week to start. After your baby is born, we encourage you to continue care due to the trauma of labor, the demands of breastfeeding and having little sleep.

We won’t take X-rays on you, but we have a MyoVision scanner that can show us areas of interference in your spine. When it comes to your adjustments, we have a table that will accommodate your belly and allow you to lie face down. Moms love it since they haven’t been able to for so long! However, if you prefer to be sitting up or lying on your side we can adjust you that way as well.


How can chiropractic care benefit my unborn baby?

If a mom’s body is stressed, it will stress out the baby even in utero. What we find is so many early-onset childhood and infant issues can even start from in utero stress. That could be the food mom is eating, toxic bombardment or physical pain and stress that the mom is suffering from. The good news is that chiropractic care can keep a mom’s body free of stress so her baby also can be stress-free and able to develop optimally.

Chiropractic also permits unobstructed development of the baby and allows the baby to get into the optimal birth position.

When should a pregnant woman start getting chiropractic care?

We would say immediately, because why wait until there’s pain before you do something? If you can start seeing us right away and be more proactive, you can enjoy a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy.

Should I see you after giving birth?

Absolutely! Chiropractic can encourage quicker post-pregnancy healing, restore the body’s proper biomechanics, relieve pain and decrease postpartum depression. Plus, chiropractic care post-pregnancy can address poor posture related to breastfeeding. While breastmilk is incredibly nutritious for Baby (we call it liquid gold), the posture of breastfeeding is typically very bad. Chiropractic care can help.

Can chiropractic help me have an easier labor?

While we can’t guarantee that you will, many of our patients who are moms told us that they had an easier labor and felt it was due to the chiropractic care mainly because you’re keeping the pelvis, pubic symphysis and hips in better alignment.
