Pregnancy Chiropractor for Pregnant Moms in West Des Moines, IA

Pregnancy is a divine wonder and a cherished gift. During this transformative journey, soon-to-be moms encounter myriad decisions and challenges, coupled with a plethora of advice, all focused on optimizing prenatal care, thus ensuring their well-being during the magical process of bringing a new life into this world.

Here at Truth Family Chiropractic, we specialize in holistic health care for the entire family from pregnancy to post-delivery and pretty much all stages of life thereafter.

Many people assume that pregnant women should not see a chiropractor. The truth is actually the opposite. Chiropractors work with the body’s natural ability to adapt and function the way it was designed to, which is vital for the normal physiological function of both the mother and the baby during pregnancy and birth.

During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes, including developmental and hormonal changes. Many of your ligaments may shift, and any women experience lower back pain as a result. Our job is to assist you with this and make your pregnancy experience enjoyable and as pain-free as possible.

Chiropractic care can also reduce restrictions and interferences which can then increase the chance of getting pregnant. If you are trying to get pregnant, chiropractic care may be a wonderful solution.

Our entire staff will always go above and beyond each and every time that we see you. We create a stress-free environment so you can enjoy coming in. We are always available to answer any of your questions. We also always create a safe environment for you and your baby.

Truth Family Chiropractic is amazing. Dr Kevin and his team provide hands on care unique to each person. When I first started visiting Truth, I struggled with foggy brain and cycles of low energy. After seeing Kevin for several weeks, my symptoms improved. Now our entire family continues to visit as part of our regular preventative health care routine. I highly recommend!!

Pregnant Women Deserve to Experience the Amazing Benefits of Chiropractic

The number of home births continues to increase due to the current public health challenges plaguing the world. Drugless health measures become more commonly practiced in order to achieve greater function, strength, and resilience within the body. Pregnant women deserve recognition more than ever before during this health crisis. Women across the world continue to develop a deeper understanding of the incredible health benefits for both mom and baby during labor and delivery.

The singular health practice of Chiropractic care produces research-based evidence such as:

– Decreased duration of delivery
– Decreased use of forceps
– Decreased likelihood of having a pre-term delivery
– Decreased fluid overload
– Decreased blood pressure
– Decreased low back pain
– Decreased carpal tunnel
– Decreased sacroiliac joint dysfunction
– Decreased risk of having meconium-stained amniotic fluid

Research from 2012 showed that women achieved these outcomes as a result of having spinal adjustive care throughout pregnancy. Something as simple as mobilizing and re-aligning the spine creates significant changes and health improvements in pregnant women.

The research showed that spinal adjustments improve health outcomes for mothers and newborns. A female’s body undergoes various structural changes during pregnancy that accommodate a growing fetus. These changes produce profound effects on the daily function of the expecting mother as pregnancy progresses.

The addition of spinal adjustments improves the quality of life as the woman’s body adapts to the new stressors. The purpose of Chiropractic adjustment focuses on keeping the alignment and movement of the spine as healthy as possible to ensure appropriate nervous system function. This proves especially important as ligaments stretch and soft tissue become more hydrated, a normal process during pregnancy. As the spine becomes more aligned and less restricted, the entire nervous system becomes better balanced and more connected. A balanced spine and nervous system improve the odds of a healthier, shorter, and more successful labor.

Almost 75% of women experience some form of back pain during their pregnancy. Tylenol tends to be the medication most recommended and used by pregnant women, despite an association with abnormal fetal development. Research from 2016 showed that Tylenol use by expecting mothers raised the risk for their emotional symptoms (29%) and hyperactivity symptoms (31%) in newborns. The evidence also showed a significant risk of increased childhood health concerns in newborns whose mothers used Tylenol.

Chiropractic helps these babies before birth by alleviating the pregnant mother of pain through spine and nervous system care. Adjustments help facilitate the body’s ability to mitigate pain, allowing women to stay active throughout their entire pregnancy. Chiropractic provides a powerful evidence-based health practice that benefits new mothers, new babies, and every stage of life in between.
