Pre-Natal, Breech & Pediatric Chiropractic & Wellness Care

During pregnancy, our primary concern is balancing the pelvis. We want baby to have all the room it needs to grow without constraint, and we want baby to get into proper position for birth.

We look at the pelvic bowl, and specifically the sacrum (tailbone) at the bottom of the spine, which is a triangle shaped bone between the two large hip bones. We look at that because there lies an attachment to the round ligament of the uterus. If the sacrum is pulled up on one side or the other, it causes the round ligament to pull up. That makes one side of the uterus smaller. This is where we see transverse position, inverse, breach or posterior positions.

When women feel back labor, baby is face out (occiput posterior) instead of face back (occiput anterior). Ideally, we want baby's head down and baby's face pointing toward the spine. When the back of the head is against the spine, it allows the largest part of head to go out first. When baby is posterior, it causes pain and back labor so women then may opt for drugs. Pain medication such as Epidurals may increase the chance for Cesarean Section.
