Pregnancy Chiropractic Care at
New Life Chiropractic

During pregnancy, your body goes through a range of physical, emotional, and chemical changes. All of these can significantly strain the body.

One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy is it helps ensure a healthy immune system for both the mother and her baby as their immune systems are closely connected during pregnancy.

Dr. Beth Greene is a highly skilled Haverhill prenatal chiropractor who can support you throughout every stage of pregnancy.

Chiropractic treatments can be used to relieve many common pregnancy symptoms, including:

  • Back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Rib pain
  • Nausea

  • Swollen ankles and feet
  • Constipation
  • Sciatica

Dr. Beth is certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). This technique is designed to help mothers have a healthy, natural delivery.

The benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy are many, but in terms of this specific technique, it helps maintain proper biomechanics of the changing pelvic structures.

This specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment technique has the goal of reducing subluxation (misalignment) of the sacroiliac joint. This helps relieve tension on the uterine ligaments, reducing intrauterine constraint and giving the baby optimal positioning during labor and delivery.

Providing Co-Care

We encourage you to talk to your midwife or OB about the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy. We co-care with many offices locally and have an open line of communication and referral relationships with the birth professionals in our community.

The Value of Postpartum Care

After giving birth we also encourage you to come in for care. That’s because post-delivery, whether you had your baby vaginally or via C-section, your pelvic biomechanics are altered. These changes can result in discomfort while breastfeeding, walking, and sleeping. Chiropractic care can restore the pelvic balance. We also can recommend helpful exercises and stretches.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes, we provide safe and gentle chiropractic care through every stage of pregnancy.
How do you make the adjustments comfortable?

In addition to providing pregnancy pillows, we use light-force adjustments.
When should I start coming in for care?

Chiropractic can benefit you at every stage. By starting care as soon as you know you’re pregnant you can enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy.
Can chiropractic help reduce labor time?

Because chiropractic balances the body and helps maintain proper spinal and pelvic alignment, it is remarkably effective at helping the body prepare for labor and delivery. Being under chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy can help reduce labor time and make delivery easier. That’s because the hips and birth canal are primed for birth.
How does chiropractic care benefit my baby?

When the pelvis and spine are properly aligned, the uterus has more space to expand, providing the baby with more space to develop.
Should I have my baby checked after giving birth?

Yes. We recommend that you bring your newborn in to get adjusted as soon after giving birth as possible. That’s because the birth process can be traumatic for a baby. Dr. Beth adjusts babies gently-using about the same amount of pressure that’s used to check the ripeness of a tomato.
