Our chiropractors at Connected Chiropractic are here to support you through any stage of your pregnancy. We are trained to work with pregnant women, babies and children and have a lot of experience doing so.

A woman’s body changes during pregnancy. Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture. That can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.

Chiropractic may help relieve the stresses and strains on your body during pregnancy and after birth. We will only use safe and gentle techniques that are suited to your condition and your stage.

We have a wide range of techniques we can use to help you with the stresses that carrying a baby puts on your pelvis, spine and muscles. A chiropractic degree involves extensive training in anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, with particular emphasis on the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.

Chiropractors sometimes work with midwives, health visitors and lactation consultants and we will refer to specialists if we need to.

There is no limit to the age of people we can help with chiropractic, babies can receive very gentle and specific adjustments from newborn. Katie’s son was two days old! Chiropractic techniques are suitable for children at all stages of development; we will assess your child to see what might help. Gentle manipulation could help soothe and relax your baby.

‘I was really struggling with sciatic pain halfway through my pregnancy. I was nervous to call but I am so glad I did. I was impressed with how much relief I got from my adjustments. It made the second part of my pregnancy so much easier than I had feared it was going to be.’
