At Putney Chiropractic we see lots of mums-to-be so are well prepared to help you throughout your pregnancy. We are all trained in Webster’s pregnancy technique and have close relations with many midwives throughout London.
Chiropractic care in pregnancy creates balance, ensuring that the mother’s spine and nervous system can work at their optimal capacity – critical with the changes taking place in her body and providing the best possible environment for the developing baby. Doctors of Chiropractic work on your spine and pelvis during pregnancy to promote balanced movement and alignment. With the pelvis in a balanced state, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supportive suspension for the uterus. Relief of these constraints will also offer the best possible chance for baby to be in the right position when labour commences.
If the pelvis is out of balance, these ligaments can become torqued and twisted, causing a condition known as uterine constraint. Ensuring that your pelvis and neurology is balanced will help your body to adapt to pregnancy more gracefully and easily and by relieving the tension, baby and mother are more comfortable. The pregnancy specific chiropractic technique is referred to as Webster’s technique; all the chiropractors at Putney are trained in this technique.
We recognise that every body has different and specific needs, and every pregnancy is different. As a baby grows, so the mother’s body must also change, adapting and accommodating the precious cargo. The body is simply amazing, and birth is phenomenal. Chiropractic can play an important role as mother and child develop together, releasing restrictions and allowing the body to perform at it’s best.
There’s no time in your life when regular chiropractic treatment will be more important than when you are pregnant. Pregnancy is a special, unique, and private time in a woman’s life. The emotions associated range through the full spectrum from excitement and relief to anxiety and even fear. Every mother needs a support network on this journey, and we are proud that so many mums-to-be choose us to be on their team.
We are just one part of a team in every pregnancy that includes partners, midwives, doctors, doulas, family… We respect the choices of all our clients, and provide further information and community support as and when it is requested.
