Preparing the Mother for a Safer, Easier Birth Throughout Pregnancy
In pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences numerous musculoskeletal adaptations and physiological changes. These changes often have an adverse effect on her neuro-biomechanics adversely affecting quality of life, birth outcome and the future well-being of her baby. The doctor of chiropractic plays a vital role correcting spinal misalignments (subluxations). By restoring nerve system function with these specific spinal adjustments, the mother’s neuro-biomechanical function is improved. This results in an improved quality of life throughout pregnancy, and a body more equipped for optimal physiological function in birth. This paper will discuss addressing the neuro-biomechanics in pregnancy, the causes of dystocia and the integrative care of birth providers to lead to a safer, easier birth for mothers and babies.
