Pregnancy & Postpartum Care

Pregnancy chiropractic in Hartford SD


During Pregnancy, a women’s body undergoes dramatic changes including: weight gain, change in posture and ligament laxity to accommodate the growth and arrival of baby. This transformation is aided by the release of the hormone relaxin, which promotes greater joint mobility, particularly in the pelvis and lower back.

However, when the pelvic bones are not moving properly and the nervous system becomes irritated, various discomforts may arise, such as lower back, pelvic and pubic bone pain, sciatica, round ligament pain and more. It’s important to understand that while pregnancy pains are common, they’re neither inevitable nor normal.

Utilizing the Webster Technique, a specialized approach for pregnant women, I focus on aligning the pelvic bones and balancing supporting muscles and ligaments. This allows your body to adapt more effectively to the changes of pregnancy, relieving pain, improving mobility, promoting proper fetal positioning, supporting a smoother labor and delivery process, and accelerating postpartum recovery. 


In the postpartum period, your body continues to adapt after childbirth, often facing new challenges such as weakened abdominal muscles, pelvic floor dysfunction, and upper back or neck aches and pains.

Through specialized postpartum chiropractic care, I aim to realign your spine, strengthen core muscles, and address any lingering discomforts from pregnancy and delivery.

By supporting your body's natural healing process, we can enhance your recovery, improve your overall well-being, and help you navigate the demands of motherhood with greater comfort and ease.
