During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
The following changes can result in a misaligned spine or joints:
➢ Protruding abdomen and increased back curve

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is one reason many expecting women seek chiropractic care during pregnancy.
