Chiropractic for Health’s pregnancy care is natural and gentle, designed to support your body and maximise your comfort and wellness through all stages of pregnancy, including delivery.

Our chiropractic pregnancy care will support your body and nervous system throughout all stages of pregnancy. It is safe, pain and drug free. It can help you remain comfortable and alleviate lower back pain, joint and muscle discomfort and sciatica. *It can also assist your body to adapt to gravitational and hormonal changes, occurring during the pregnancy and assist with the optimal positioning at birth.
*Moving towards labour, our chiropractic pregnancy care can help to enable the mother’s body to have correct biomechanics of the spine and pelvis during birth, which may assist with the baby’s head to apply even pressure to the cervix which enables your body to dilate effectively during labour. This may decrease or eliminate the need for pain relief during delivery and contribute to a more straight forward labour, with less pain and trauma.

Our chiropractic pregnancy treatments vary during your gestation, from individual to individual. This is because your physical condition is constantly changing. Our treatments need to reflect this, to provide maximum comfort and support, at all stages of pregnancy.
Dr Hansor tailors her treatments to your specific circumstances. She listens to your history and completes a series of non-invasive tests to seek the best places to focus her treatment, to deliver optimum outcomes. This includes a postural analysis, your range of movement and muscle and reflex testing.
Our clinic rooms are comfortable and calming. We provide pillows and support mechanisms to maximise pregnant patient comfort when in our care. After your precious bundle arrives, we can continue your wellness journey providing treatments and guidance on how to minimise back and muscle pain, from carrying, changing and caring for your baby.
With assessment, treatment, guidance and support.
