Postpartum + Chiropractic care

November 18, 2019


You have just brought your little one earth side and transitioned into the healing phase. Giving birth is one of the most intense and rewarding events in a woman’s life. But with the motherhood transition comes changes biomechanically, emotionally, and spiritually. Many women seek chiropractic care through pregnancy to help with easier deliveries and less discomfort but what about post-natal? 

Often times, we forget how much time is needed for healing and recovery. New moms are considered to be in the postpartum healing phase for up to a year. 


Postpartum and Chiropractic Care

Once baby arrives, mom’s center of gravity has changed, hormones are a rollercoaster, and her body is working towards nourishing this little one. Taking the time to recover and restore during the postpartum period is crucial for optimal healing. A woman’s pelvic biomechanics can be altered during the birth process just as it has done all throughout pregnancy and is the most common reason for postpartum chiropractic care. While it is important that our structures are in proper alignment as hormones balance and soft tissue heals, chiropractic care can help the body adapt to the major changes that come with the motherhood transition.

Chiropractic care not only makes the recovery time easier, but also aids to reduce discomforts caused by poor posture during breast feeding, picking up or holding baby.  


How soon can I see a chiropractor?

While there is not a set time frame that you can or cannot see a chiropractor, we recommend staying in for your “babymoon” (first two weeks with baby) and getting checked once you feel ready to leave the house. Labor and delivery can be exhausting so we want you to get as much rest before venturing out of the house. Seeing a chiropractor after birth not only sets the foundation for the healing process, but also supports the body as a whole in the motherhood transition.



Love + light,


Dr. Lacey Wilson
