Why every pregnant mom needs to see a Chiropractor

Adjustments remove interference in the nervous system, the master control system within the body, allowing optimal health and life processes to function in the mother and baby.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care Before Pregnancy
  • More regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function
  • Prepares the body to be strong and balanced to carry your pregnancy
  • Restoring nerve supply to reproductive organs helps with fertility problems
  • Strengthens immune system

Chiropractic During Pregnancy

  • Helps leg cramps, pubic bone and low back pain during pregnancy
  • Maintains pelvic structures in proper alignment, preventing pressure build up on the sciatic nerves and round ligaments. This promotes optimal fetal position and leads to a safer and easier labor
  • Stress reduction and hormonal balance
Post Delivery
  • Helps with birth trauma received during the labor and delivery process, particularly when medical interventions such as vacuum extraction, episiotomy, caesarean sections and other surgical procedures are employed.
  • Breastfeeding challenges
  • Parents report symptom relief of infantile colic, constipation, chronic ear infections, bed-wetting, torticollis, scoliosis, acid-reflux, asthma and ADHD
Postural Changes During Pregnancy



















Dr. Zach Gower is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). He is trained and certified in the Webster Technique- a safe and gentle chiropractic approach for pregnancy which helps stabilize the pelvis, reduce pressure and tension in the pelvic muscles and ligaments, and support the baby to naturally assume a normal birth position.  Chiropractic care for pregnancy has been shown to help reduce labour times, maintains pelvic floor stability and improve balance and structure in the mother’s spine and pelvis. Dr. Gower is passionate about providing chiropractic for pregnant women and helping families and children express their optimal health potential.
