To establish alignment and pelvic balance chiropractic care is adopted by most women during their pregnancy period. Misalignment of pelvis reduces the amount of space required for a baby to develop. In medical language this problem is known by the name intrauterine constraint. Misaligned pelvis leads to difficulties where it gets hard for a baby to find the exact position at delivery time.
