How often should I see a chiropractor during pregnancy? | Cleveland Prenatal Chiropractor

While every person is different and every pregnancy is different, my general recommendation for chiropractic care during pregnancy, if you are feeling good, is to be seen as often as you seen your care provider! Of course if you are having any pain or discomfort, more visits will be warranted until your symptoms resolve. Chiropractic can decrease pain and discomfort during pregnancy, keep the pelvis balanced to encourage optimal position of baby, reduce labor times, and much much more! Below are my general recommendations for chiropractic, acupuncture, prenatal and postpartum fitness, and other workshops:

Pre-pregnancy:

  • Chiropractic visits every 4-8 weeks 

  • Acupuncture weekly to promote fertility

First trimester:

  • Chiropractic care every 4-8 weeks

  • Acupuncture every 1-4 weeks based on early pregnancy symptoms

  • Prenatal + Postpartum Fitness 2x/week

Second trimester:

  • Monthly chiropractic visits

  • Acupuncture sessions every 2-4 weeks

  • Prenatal + Postpartum Fitness 2x/week

Third trimester (Weeks 28-36):

  • Chiropractic care every 2-4 weeks to promote optimal fetal and pelvis positioning

  • Acupuncture every 1-2 weeks

  • Prenatal + Postpartum Fitness 2x/week

  • Birth partner workshop

Thrid trimester (Weeks 36-40):

  • Weekly or biweekly chiropractic care to ensure optimal pelvic positioning

  • Acupuncture weekly to promote cervical ripening and dilating 

  • Prenatal + Postpartum Fitness 2x/week

Forth trimester (Weeks 1-4 postpartum):

  • Weekly chiropractic care for mom and baby

  • Weekly acupuncture treatments

Forth trimester (beyond 4 weeks postpartum):

  • Chiropractic care every 2-4 weeks for mom and baby
