Having proper spinal alignment and nervous system function leading up to pregnancy, and then while pregnant, are essential for the developing fetus. If a mom's internal environment is struggling, how can baby be expected to grow and develop optimally? That's where we come in...

Proper pelvic alignment and balance ensure that the baby is in a relaxed, optimal position when the time comes for delivery. Too often, intrauterine constraint develops due to misalignment in the mother's pelvis, causing stress and improper position of the fetus (breech, posterior positions).

The pelvis is the foundation for the entire spine above. Although the pelvis is a major area to focus on during pregnancy, Dr. Lacey will also be checking your entire spine looking for subluxations that could be hindering a healthy pregnancy.

A mother's body undergoes many changes during the pregnancy process. Regular chiropractic care will help the mother's spine, health and well-being throughout the pregnancy and through the transition into motherhood.
