#83 — Great Expectations: Chiropractic in Pregnancy
Host // Jeanne Ohm, DC
Chiropractors are the third largest group of doctorate-level primary care providers, behind medical doctors and dentists. Chiropractic has become mainstream treatment, with more than 30 million people annually. When it comes to pregnancy, however, women have a lot of questions:
- Is chiropractic care during pregnancy safe?
- Are chiropractors trained to work with pregnant women?
- Can birth outcomes be improved with chiropractic adjustments?
- What is intrauterine constraint and how can a misaligned pelvis affect the fetus?
Did you know that chiropractic treatment can mitigate nausea, reduce time of labor and delivery, relieve back and joint pain, and prevent a potential caesarian birth?
