Pregnancy Chiropractic

Whether you’re thinking of becoming pregnant or are in your first or last trimester, chiropractic care can benefit you and your baby. Though you can experience the benefits of chiropractic at every stage of your pregnancy, it’s ideal to begin care during preconception. That’s because doing so allows you to get as healthy and aligned as possible—setting a solid foundation for a healthy pregnancy.

The Importance of Stress Reduction

Chiropractic care helps to reduce stress during pregnancy. When we reduce stress in your nervous system, we decrease stress on your baby’s nervous system. Remember—if you’re wired for stress, so will your baby. Keeping stress at a minimum will allow for optimal growth, function and health.

Is Chiropractic Safe During Pregnancy?

Yes, chiropractic is highly safe throughout pregnancy. Because no drugs are used, chiropractic care is safe for both you and your unborn baby. And because it’s not advised to take painkillers during pregnancy, chiropractic can alleviate pain naturally.

Moms-to-be under chiropractic care can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Relieves pain
  • Controls nausea
  • Improves balance

  • Reduces labor and delivery time
  • Prevents potential C-section & other interventions
  • Helps a baby get into optimal birth position

Many of our practice members come in to receive the Webster Technique. Dr. Brittney obtained extensive education to become certified in this method. Safe and effective, the Webster Technique helps women before and during pregnancy to reduce intrauterine constraint to allow her baby to get into the optimal birth position.

Could chiropractic help me conceive?

As chiropractic relieves pressure on the nerves that run through the spinal column, subluxations can be corrected. Then a woman’s reproductive system can function as it should, which may result in a successful pregnancy. Chiropractic also can be used in conjunction with IVF.
How often should I come in for care during pregnancy?

If it’s your first time visiting a chiropractor, we may set you up with a restorative care plan that includes 2-3 visits a week. After that, generally, we recommend one visit a week throughout the pregnancy.
Will my adjustment be comfortable?

Yes! Dr. Brittney has a special table that has a belly drop so moms can lie facedown comfortably. We also feature pregnancy pillows with belly holes in them.
Can I get acupuncture during pregnancy?

Yes, acupuncture can help the natural labor process as well as help with breech babies. Dr. Brittney often gets referrals from obstetricians whose patients have babies in the breech position. Dr. Brittney uses moxibustion, which is a specific acupuncture technique that can help support a baby getting into the optimal birth position.

Moxibustion is a technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves the burning of mugwort to promote healing.

Part of the BIRTHFIT® Community

According to its website, “BIRTHFIT is an approach to conception, adoption, and birth.” BIRTHFIT offers in-person classes and distance learning. We are proud to be a part of the Lincoln BIRTHFIT community and helping moms- and dads-to-be get the natural healthcare support as well as encouragement throughout pregnancy and beyond.

As a mother of three young kids, Dr. Brittney loves helping moms-to-be throughout their journey to parenthood. We often see young women come in because they’re interested in health and wellness. They want to get healthy before becoming pregnant. These women may come to Thrive Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture because they’re struggling to get pregnant. For Dr. Brittney, helping practice members through pregnancy is her favorite thing.

“From the moment a mom tells me that she’s pregnant, I have over-the-moon excitement for her,” she says.

Once a woman has her baby, we offer the baby’s initial exam and first adjustment complimentary. That’s because we believe so strongly in the importance of chiropractic care in fostering a healthy nervous system that we want to provide that opportunity.

One Mom’s Testimonial

I started seeing Brittney with my first pregnancy. I had some low back pain when sitting up or down off the floor. She knew exactly what to do, and I don’t know how I would have made it through my pregnancy without her. She also helps relieve tightness and knots in my neck and shoulders. **one last thing, she helped round out my baby’s head. It was flat on one side. It was a very gently technique. Strongly recommend her!”
