Pregnancy is such a special time of a woman's life. There are so many changes going on. The amazing changes that occur as your baby is growing will cause ligaments to relax to prepare you for the delivery. As your baby grows your posture will adapt for the increase in weight.
If your spine is in great health and well aligned then these changes should not cause any problems. If this is not the case then you may be experiencing pain and discomfort and your pregnancy may not prove to be such a wonderful experience.
A misaligned or twisted pelvis will not only be uncomfortable for the mother but may also affect how your baby gets through the birth canal during the birth, due to alterations in the muscles, ligaments and connective tissue around the uterus. Also if the pelvis is twisted your baby's growth and movement may be compromised, affecting their nerve system development. Research shows that the brain of the unborn learns through movement and any constraint reduces the rate of the baby's movement.
