Pregnancy is truly amazing. To all the mothers out there, we’re in constant awe of your strength and resiliency. We also understand that no pregnancy is the same or perfect. Many parents experience a fair share of hurdles before conceiving, during pregnancy and after birth. If you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, a prenatal chiropractor can help eliminate interferences so your body can create the optimal environment for a healthy pregnancy.
When choosing a chiropractor for pregnancy, they should be certified in Webster Technique and neurologically focused. Regular chiropractic care helps your body adapt to changes it is experiencing physically, and most importantly, it can strengthen the connection between mom and baby neurologically. And because it takes a village, dads and partners are encouraged to join during any of the visits to The Wellery.

Because of the incredible energetic and physical bond between mother and baby, we encourage that both get scanned to see how we can best support those crucial first months. We are committed to making sure you and your newborn get the support you need at every stage in the process.

Is it safe to get adjusted while pregnant?
Not only is seeking a prenatal chiropractor completely safe throughout the pregnancy, but it is also highly encouraged. By helping moms adapt to the stresses of pregnancy, baby is better able to adapt too – giving them a head start before birth. Time and time again, expecting moms receiving chiropractic care experience more comfortable pregnancies, shorter and easier labor times, and more room for baby to move freely and grow naturally.
Should I see a chiropractor for pelvic pain during pregnancy?
Pelvic pain is a common reason women seek out a chiropractor for pregnancy. Chiropractic care can also help with sciatica (low back or leg pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve) and round ligament pain (sharp pain often felt in the lower belly or groin area) as the body adapts to the various stages of pregnancy.
What is the Webster Technique and how will it benefit me throughout my pregnancy?
We’re happy to share more with you if you’d like, but here’s what you need to know: the Webster Technique is a specialized prenatal certification. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation (structural displacement). Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother and a correction may have a positive effect on the causes of difficult labor. The Webster Technique helps ensure the pelvis and surrounding structures are properly functioning and thus supporting the development and birthing process.
