Could you please explain how chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can contribute to a smoother and less complicated birth and delivery?

This combination has scientifically shown for faster delivery times and less pain.
Can receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy help the mom’s body recover faster after the baby’s birth, during the postpartum phase?
Dr. Ben Rauch: Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy and after pregnancy can absolutely help a mom’s body in recovering after the baby is born.

With continuous care through pregnancy, the mom will have a better functioning spine and nervous system to handle all that stress.
