Chiropractic During Pregnancy

We have three chiropractors at the Luck’s Yard Clinic, nr. Guildford, Surrey – Tone Tellefsen Hughes, Mariana Ferencakova, Nic Langlois and Mike Marinus.  All are fully qualified and experienced chiropractors.

Luck’s Yard Chiropractic Clinic, Godalming nr. Guildford, Surrey serves the local community and beyond, with clients from all over the South East including London.

We take special care of pregnant women and endeavour to help you to feel confident about your pregnancy.

Our aim is to work with you to achieve:

  • Good postural, spinal and pelvic alignment
  • Muscle balance and relaxation
  • Awareness of postures and exercises for birth preparation
  • Confidence and comfort

What to expect
During your visit, you will be given a chiropractic examination tailored to pregnancy. Your postural and muscular tension will be assessed as well as the individual and global movement of the body, spine and neck.

We take a particular interest in the symmetry of the pelvis and lower back with regards to the positioning of the baby. We also look closely at your feet and their alignment with regards to the hips, pelvis, and symphysis pubis.

Treatment
Each patient will have an individually tailored treatment programme.
The technique we use will vary on where you are in your pregnancy and the level of stability or your joints. Women go through pregnancy very differently so each person is unique based on their past history and postural and mechanical make up.

We may use a ‘doughnut’ pillow – with a hole in the centre – so you can lie comfortably during treatment as well as other modalities to ensure comfort.

Advice – guidance – support
During your treatment programme you will receive advice on posture, exercises and how to prepare physically for the birth process and after. We work closely with our other therapists in the clinic and healthcare practitioners locally so we can help you find other health care providers to support you during this time.
