Pregnancy Chiropractic in McLaren Vale

Mother and daughter smiling at each otherAt McLaren Vale Chiropractic Centre, we want to help our expecting mums have the most comfortable pregnancy and the best birth process possible! The latest research shows that women who receive regular chiropractic care during pregnancy have an average of 5 hours’ shorter labour time, require 50% less pain medication and have a lower rate of medical interventions. All of this can set you up for a more empowering birth experience and give your baby a less traumatic entry into the world while setting a strong foundation for their long-term health.

How We May Help

Chiropractor Dr Kara Martelle tailors care to your specific needs. We have a special pregnancy pillow with a cutout for your belly so you can lie comfortably face-down, and we use specific techniques such as the Webster Technique to ensure your pelvis and sacrum are balanced and aligned and to alleviate tension on the round ligaments.

Some of the common issues our expecting mums seek care for are:

  • Heartburn
  • Hip pain
  • Low back pain
  • Pubic bone pain
Much of the discomfort associated with pregnancy stems from postural changes due to weight gain and a shifting centre of gravity. With our focus on postural correction, we aim to help you enjoy your pregnancy to the fullest.

Benefits for Baby

You’re not the only one who may benefit from our care – chiropractic care can also benefit your baby. During pregnancy, chiropractic care may help to reduce intrauterine constraint so your baby has ample room to move and grow, and having an easier birth process can set them up for better health.

With newborns, we can check for birth trauma and help with issues like latching or feeding, which may stem from misalignments in the neck, which are often the result of the birth process.
