@MrsAKSkier  I definitely would, as well as any other doctor, dentist etc that you have appointments with.

You can never be too careful. You should be telling your chiropractor, dentist, even massage therapist if you go. So yes please tell him/her. Congrats on your pregnancy 🙂

Yes, he’s a medical professional! And unless he’s some kind of scum bucket he’s not revealing patient info to anyone.

Yes, it’s very important that you tell him. I was in a car accident right before I got pregnant and my course of treatment changed during my two week wait and also when I got my BFP. There were a lot of things he wasn’t willing to do during pregnancy and even now at 37 weeks he continues to limit my treatment options.

I don’t know why you wouldn’t! As a medical professional he knows the risks and possible contraindications associated with chiropractic work and pregnancy, so this is something that he really needs to be aware of before you receive a treatment.

Yes, for sure – you should tell any and all medical professionals from whom you’re receiving treatment.  As far as telling him before family, I think those are totally separate issues – it’s not like you’re making a big announcement to him and expecting him to be all excited and emotional about it Smile It’s important information that you are sharing about your current medical condition.  I see it as no different from telling your OBGYN before your family – would you feel weird about calling and making an appointment with them before telling mom and dad?  Probably not.
