Health for Two: Benefits of Care in Pregnancy

By Genevieve Cunningham

When it comes to pregnancy, suddenly everything is referred to in twos. You’re now sleeping for two and eating for two. While more sleep and double the food probably sounds appealing, it’s also important to consider that you also have to be healthy for two. Does this mean double the exercise and increase the weights? Luckily, no! But it does mean that now is a great time to include some very beneficial preventative methods, such as regular chiropractic care. Take a look at why adding this to your prenatal routine is a great way to keep both baby and mom happy and healthy.

It Helps With Pain Relief

The number one reason that people see a chiropractor, pregnant or not, is for pain relief. And pregnancy is a time when pain relief is definitely necessary. The aches and pains that come around when you’re expecting are numerous and frustrating. Pain in the back and hips, headaches, and other various discomforts are common. Chiropractors work to properly align the spine, and subsequently the rest of the body, in order to relieve those pains and leave you feeling just a little more comfortable.

It Helps With Sleep

The less pain you’re in, the easier it is to fall and stay asleep. And before baby arrives is a great time to catch up on your sleep, because you won’t be getting any significant sleep after baby gets here. With a properly aligned spine, the aches and pains often diminish enough to allow you to rest. Along with this, a healthy spine also reduces insomnia for many people, so better sleep may come at you from more than one angle.

What Does It Do for Baby?

So while it’s easy to see how chiropractic care helps mom, how exactly does it help baby? The truth is that chiropractic care probably won’t help baby directly until after it arrives, but it helps indirectly by making mom healthy. It has been proven time and again that the healthier mom stays during pregnancy, the healthier baby is when it gets here. Of course babies still have their own health problems sometimes, but a healthier mom and a healthier pregnancy can help keep that baby healthy and safe before its big debut.
