Objective: To describe the care of a pregnant patient presenting with a history of migraine headaches, hypothyroidism, and tachycardia.

Clinical Features: A 28-year-old woman presented for chiropractic care at 14 weeks gestation with a history of prior Caesarean section.  She sought chiropractic care to improve her chances of a trial of labor and vaginal delivery for her current pregnancy.  History revealed the patient as diagnosed with migraine headaches, hypothyroidism and tachycardia. During care, the patient experienced visual field disturbances and neurological deficits in the face and upper extremities.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with Gonstead Technique, Thompson Drop, and Webster Technique. She attended care for a total of 33 visits of 7 months duration.  The result was a successful trial of labor at 40 weeks plus 4 days and delivery of a healthy baby girl.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic as described in the care of a pregnant woman.
