Pregnancy Chiropractic at Wellness Montana

pregnant person with hands on stomachAt first glance, most people don’t see the connection between chiropractic and pregnancy. However, there are four stages in which having an optimally working nervous system can help both mother and child.


Chiropractic care at Wellness Montana  can help prepare the body for pregnancy by ensuring proper alignment, nervous system function, and overall health. By addressing any underlying issues and promoting optimal wellness, the combination of chiropractic adjustments  and good nutrition may increase the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy and childbirth.


Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy appeals to mothers who seek a natural approach to better health. Consistent care during pregnancy can help alleviate discomfort, support pelvic alignment, and promote optimal nervous system function. It can help manage pregnancy-related conditions, prepare the body for labor and delivery, and enhance overall well-being.

Working with a chiropractor experienced in prenatal care can provide safe and effective relief for pregnant women, improving their comfort and birth experience. Dr. Justin is certified in the Webster Technique.  The Webster Technique, pioneered by the late Larry Webster, D.C., is designed to alleviate pelvic stress by relaxing surrounding ligaments and reducing sacral subluxation, thereby promoting improved function. This method aids in positioning babies optimally for birth. This is considered the gold standard technique for safe and gentle chiropractic care during pregnancy. 


Labor and Birth

Many rely on chiropractic care to help assure optimum biomechanics of the hips and spine in the hopes of reducing the need for interventions during the birth process.


Regardless of the way the baby comes into this world, stress can happen to the babies spine during delivery. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby has a subluxation and is unable to comfortably turn its head to one side. Having your baby checked out as soon as possible post-birth is a great way to give them a strong foundation in their nervous system as they begin a rapid growth process over the next 12 months.

Mothers significantly benefit from holistic whole body care during the postpartum period as well! Chiropractic care can provide valuable support and assistance during the postpartum period, helping women regain their strength, mobility, and overall wellness after childbirth. Combining consistent chiropractic care with functional medicine and nutrition can help nourish your body for recovery, and set you up for success with breastfeeding. 

Rest assured, we use special approaches to make our adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will adjustments hurt my baby?

Of course not. This is a common concern among parents who mistakenly think their child will receive adjustments like the ones they receive. Not only are adjusting techniques modified for each person’s size and unique spinal problem, an infant’s spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This makes the energy needed to adjust a child’s spine considerably less than an adult’s does.

Will adjustments make my spine too loose?

No. Only the spinal joints that are “locked up” receive adjustments. This allows weakened muscles and ligaments to stabilize and heal.

Pregnancy is natural. Why would I need chiropractic?

Being born is a natural phenomenon. It’s what we’ve done to the birth process that has become increasingly suspect. In hospitals, birth is often treated like a disease. A newborn’s introduction to the world is often accompanied by a severe drop in temperature, loud noises and other insensitivities. The administration of drugs and anesthesia can have a profound effect on a newborn.

Will my medical doctor approve?

First, you don’t need anyone’s approval to seek a chiropractic opinion about health issues affecting your child! The judgment of another health care expert is always helpful in the decision-making process. Medical practitioners keeping up with the latest pediatric chiropractic research are starting to understand the value of this natural, drug-free approach to better health.

What does my spine have to do with my baby?

Pregnancy may be one of the best times to receive chiropractic care! While it’s always good to have an optimally functioning nervous system, it’s especially helpful now. Both mother and baby can benefit. Adjusting methods are adapted to a mother’s size, weight and condition. During this period of weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care. Some report shorter and easier births.
