Here at CHIRO FOR MOMS we are demonstrating the changes that occur within the pelvis during the various stages of labor + delivery. Our prenatal chiropractor goes through different techniques to open the pelvis during these various stages.
These techniques are designed to help open up the pelvis to create enough space for baby to get in an optimal position for birth - typically head down. **Consult your health care professional before trying any of these techniques at home. These are designed to focus on the women's pelvis. They are not intended to focus in any way directly on baby.**
