Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is vital to aid in the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby, not only during pregnancy but during birth as well.
Regular chiropractic care reduces interference to the mother’s nervous system, which coordinates all the functions in her body. Reducing nervous system interference helps creates a state of balance in the mother’s pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments, which ultimately prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth process, and decreases the potential for interventions such as inducement or cesarean section.
As the baby grows, a woman’s uterus causes increased tension on the ligaments that support the uterus. With a well-balanced and aligned pelvis, the growing baby is able to achieve and maintain proper position, reducing the chance of fetal malposition (breech and transverse babies).
Regular chiropractic care throughout pregnancy has been shown to also control symptoms of nausea, reduce the time of labor and delivery and reduce pelvic and back pain as mom’s body grows with her growing baby.

Dr. Maddie Allen is so amazing. Always a friendly face to see and knows what she’s doing. I could not even bend over before I saw her today and I’m already feeling so much better and can get things done.

Dr. Allen is the best there is. I just started going here and the neck/back pain I’ve had for years has healed with a couple of visits. She pays close attention to what I’m saying and is really good at explaining things for me to understand! Very friendly. Definitely recommend!!
"I make it a PRIORITY to visit Dr. Allen"
Whenever I fly out to Seattle I make it a PRIORITY to visit Dr. Allen. I’ve since specialists for my back issues and she’s the only one who takes the time to listen. She’s taught me how to take care of myself after each treatment as well.
