Pregnancy is a time when the magnificent wisdom within all of us is fully expressed. It is living proof of how amazing the inborn intelligence that flows through our nerve system truly is. In 9 short months our innate intelligence takes 2 cells and creates another living, breathing, functioning, beautiful living being.
A study by the American Medical Association found that women who received regular chiropractic care during their 3rd trimester, carried and delivered with more comfort. Another study concluded that with regular chiropractic adjustments mothers decreased the need for analgesics by half during their delivery. Chiropractic care has also been shown to be able to relieve intrauterine constraint and decrease the average amount of time spent in labor. Itís also been revealed that new mothers who were adjusted regularly had a 24% reduction in labor time. Motherís delivering for the 2nd or 3rd time, who were adjusted regularly, had labor times that were 39% shorter.
