Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care offers noninvasive & drug free benefits for expecting mother before, during & after the many changes of pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a special and unique time in your life and you and your unborn baby deserve the very best health care. Pregnancy also brings a range of physical changes to your body. As your baby grows, your spine and pelvis can become imbalanced which means your body may face new challenges which can affect development and birth. Ensuring that your body is aligned and functioning at its very best, gives you the best chance to adapt to those changes so that you can have a healthy and enjoyable pregnancy and birth.

Can Chiropractic Care Help with Pregnancy Pains?

Yes! Regular, gentle chiropractic adjustments while pregnant help restore your body’s natural alignment and communication systems (the nervous system) and are a great way to relieve the added stress on your spine while maintaining your pelvic balance.  Pregnant mums often seek out care for lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, pubic symphysis pain during all stages of pregnancy. 

What is even better is that these adjustments mean your nervous system now has the ability to communicate clearly with all parts of your body; all the cells, tissues, muscles and organs that are connecting you and your growing baby. By encouraging your body to perform at its very best, your baby has a greater chance of developing optimally and without restriction.

We have specialist training in prenatal care and offer a range of techniques (including the Webster Technique) to help you have a more comfortable pregnancy.

We can also advise and provide guidance to give mum more confidence & certainty for a healthy pregnancy & delivery.

The Webster Technique

The Webster Technique is a Specific Chiropractic Analysis and Technique to optimise nerve system function by improving pelvic position and alignment. This reduces tension of the uterus and offers greater chance for optimal baby positioning and the neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved. 

Dr Lianna has an interest in family healthcare and has undergone specialised training giving her the Webster Technique Certification for pregnant women, a qualification which minimal chiropractors in the UK hold and has a special interest in chiropractic paediatrics. 

At New Heights Wellness Centre, we provide specially made treatment cushions that allow pregnant mums to relax safely on their tummy during their adjustments with us!

The Belloost Pregnancy Pillow has a cavity for your bump and breasts. As well as contours designed to minimise pressure on delicate areas like the pubic symphysis and anterior neck structures.
