Chiropractic care during pregnancy is vitally important in supporting the body’s innate ability to adapt and function the way it is designed to for both mother and baby.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy:
- In expectant mothers presenting breech, there has been a high reported success rate of the baby turning to the normal vertex position. The Webster technique has been successfully used in women whose babies present transverse and posterior as well. It has also successfully used with twins.
- Prepares the woman’s pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by creating a balance in pelvic bony structures, muscles and ligaments allowing the baby the room to develop without restrictions to its forming cranium, spine and other skeletal structures.
- Removes tension on the ligaments that support the uterus, such as the round ligaments- reducing torsion (intrauterine constraint) to the woman’s uterus offering the baby the room to move into the best possible position for birth.
- Reduces interference to the mother’s vital nerve system which controls and coordinates all of her systems and functions for better baby development.
- With proper fetal positioning, there is a significant decrease in dystocia (resistance to normal function in birth) and the resulting birth trauma caused by intervention.
- Allows for a safer, easier birth for mother and baby by decreasing the potential for interventions such as augmentation, c-section, vacuum and forceps extraction, etc.

One of the many wonderful aspects of the birthing ball is that they can play an essential role in helping laboring mothers get into a comfortable position for birthing. Sitting upright on the ball can actually help the baby descend through the birthing canal by using the advantage of gravity. There are many other positions, such as squatting and kneeling that can be used with the birthing ball.( http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/labor_delivery/60271#ixzz0Z7n8HCRa)
