Allow for a more comfortable pregnancy
Shorten labor times
An increase in neural communication
More room for baby to grow
Improved energy levels

Another study concluded that with regular chiropractic adjustments:
need for analgesics decreased by half during delivery

Dr. Hillman has been trained in Webster Certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Webster is a specialized prenatal chiropractic technique that helps ensure the pelvis and surrounding structures are properly supporting the growth and development of the baby.
In 2019, Dr. Hillman attended a two-day training in Spinning Babies. Spinning Babies is a unique approach created by midwife Gail Tully, that focuses on easing baby’s rotation through physiological release rather than a mechanical manipulation or force. It can be used in conjunction with the work she has practiced for years being a Webster Certified Provider. At Hillman Chiropractic and Weness, we desire to be a resource within the birth community. We are here to support, educate, and empower you throughout your pregnancy. We look forward to becoming apart of your birth team.
