Prenatal Chiropractor In Indianapolis: Drs. Chelsey and Steve Smiley


Chiropractic care during pregnancy is vital to the normal function of both mother and baby throughout your pregnancy, birth, and even postpartum.

During pregnancy, the body is undergoing many changes both physically and mentally. Many of the problems that arise due to these changes respond favorably to gentle, non-invasive chiropractic care using Webster Technique.

These Changes May Include:

  • Releasing the hormone relaxin, this hormone helps to relax the muscles and ligaments in preparation for delivery of baby. Also allows the joints to misalign easier.
  • Pre-existing but unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis flare up during pregnancy as your body grows and hormones change. (You might have been out of alignment before you even got pregnant)
  • Increase and steady gain of weight. This puts more stress and demand on your joints, muscles, and ligaments which can make you uncomfortable.
  • Increase in joint stress can lead to misalignments in the pelvis and sacrum putting abnormal tension and strain on ligaments of the pelvis.

These changes can lead to pain, discomfort, and nerve interference in the lower back and uterus. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and may prevent these common discomforts.

There is a better way to support your body’s innate birthing process and keep your baby comfortable too.

We work specifically with your pelvis throughout pregnancy restoring a state of balance and creating a space for an easier, quicker, safer delivery of your baby.

Gentle Spinal Adjustments Tailored Specifically for Pregnancy:

Webster Technique:

Webster is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment protocol with the goal of reducing pelvic imbalance. Pelvic imbalance can directly affect labor progression due to baby’s positioning. Pelvic imbalance negatively affects uterine nerve function, structure, and may hinder your baby’s ability to get into the proper position to come down the birth canal.  With Webster technique our goal is getting your structure into a state of balance that may contribute to safer, easier birthing experience.

We are passionate about pregnancy and birth.  We are both Webster Technique certified through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) and have extra training in treating the pregnant population.

The great thing about Webster Technique is it doesn’t matter if you are 1 week along or 40 weeks with a breech baby the protocol is the same to find and correct pelvic imbalance and get you into better alignment for the birth of your baby.
