Pregnancy Chiropractic Melbourne

pregnant woman with the doctorPregnancy is an exciting, new chapter of life. However, as beautiful as it is, it is often accompanied by aches, pains, and discomfort. As your baby gets ready to enter the world, your body is forced to accommodate your little one’s growing body. Christie Chiropractic happily offers prenatal chiropractic care to help your pregnancy go as smoothly as can be.

How Safe Is Chiropractic Care for Expectant Mothers?

When it comes to prenatal chiropractic care, we offer specific care that benefits both mother and baby. For example, pregnant women experience increased ligament laxity. This extra laxity means that they are hypermobile. It is for this reason that we modify our techniques to be much gentler than general chiropractic methods.

Dr. Christie has had specific training for pregnant mothers and utilizes the Webster Technique to carefully realign the pelvis, allowing for better function, and release the complimentary ligaments and muscles located in the pelvic region. We do our best to adapt care to suit the needs of expectant mothers without compromising their comfort.

Benefits for Your Baby

While pregnant, your body is shifting, your joints are moving, and your pelvis is opening to accommodate labor and delivery. These many ongoing physical changes can lead to muscle imbalances. By getting adjusted, your pelvis is able to function as it should, with normal range of motion. Proper motion is important because a restricted pelvis directly affects how your baby is able to move and establish comfort inside the womb.


How do you adjust pregnant women?

Your adjustment is always tailored to suit your comfort and preferences. When you’re expecting, it’s no different. Dr. Christie uses many adjusting techniques. For pregnant women, we’re pleased to offer the Webster Technique.

Can you still adjust me as my belly grows?

As your baby gets bigger, your center of gravity will shift. We can accommodate you through each trimester of pregnancy, right up until you have your baby.

Do you see children?

We welcome you to bring your baby in when you’re ready to and we will be happy to evaluate them.

How often will I need to come in?

Our personalized approach to care means that our recommendations will be tailored to your situation. Your current health, complaints and the stage of your pregnancy will all be taken into consideration before we make our recommendations to you.

What is the evaluation process like?

When you’re pregnant, you’ll be evaluated just as we would any other new patient. We’ll talk about your health history, any complaints you have and discuss your particular goals. You’ll have a full examination that is completely non-invasive. Then, we can make our recommendations to you about your care.
