Prenatal Chiropractor Can Help With a Healthy Pregnancy

There are over 3.5 million children born in the USA yearly, with a small percentage that come with some sort of complications. The delivery process alone can be very painful and some women opt in for epidurals. The birthing process can be highly improved through prenatal exercise, proper diet intake, supplements, and Gonstead chiropractic care at Thrive Chiropractic in Keller.

As soon as conception occurs, your body begins to change! Change must occur to prepare your body to support the new baby inside your womb. A new life entering this world is amazing despite the 9-month process associated with pregnancy. Some may experience morning sickness during the initial trimester, due to the increase in hormone levels and growing placenta.

During these stages, it impacts the body and causes an increase in stress on the nervous system. Our team at Thrive Chiropractic will work on your spine and release the tension within your nervous system. As these nerve irritants decrease, this will optimize your bodily and organ functions!


The first trimester of pregnancy can be challenging but we know you can overcome it. According to the mayo clinic, you may experience: nausea with/without vomiting, increased urination, fatigue, food cravings and aversions, heartburn, constipation, or even headaches. With the help of our prenatal chiropractor providing gentle spinal corrections, proper nutrition, and sleep, many of these symptoms can be reduced or even eliminated.

The second trimester is when the uterus + baby grows and you begin to feel the “baby weight”. During this stage, you may feel discomfort or aches due to the stretching of the uterine ligaments. If there are structural changes in your spine, pregnancy usually exacerbates the issue. It may lead to an increase in headaches, swelling, headaches, constipation, and general pelvic pain. Prenatal chiropractic care during pregnancy can help remove the stress from the pelvic due to the alteration of the lower back curve.


The benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy can be seen during labor. According to Henryford: “Women who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy have 25% to 31% shorter labor times.” This is due to better structural alignment in the pelvic outlet region, which decreases intrauterine constraint and allows the baby to pass through the labor canal with more ease.

At Thrive Chiropractic, we believe in providing hope in your journey to health. We love being prenatal chiropractors in Keller because we can assist new moms as they prepare to deliver a new life into this world! Not only can we help with pregnancy, but we can also provide care to newborns to support their development throughout their life.
