Why use a chiropractor during pregnancy?
During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many physical and hormonal changes. These can have a big impact on your posture and how comfortable you are. As your pregnancy progresses, your body will also begin to prepare for labour which can cause further aches and pains in your hips, buttock and back.
Regular visits to a chiropractor can help with these and also prepare your pelvis and spine for labour.
