Objective: To describe the chiropractic care and its benefits in a pregnant woman desiring a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC).

Clinical Feature: A 28-year-old woman presented for care at 29 weeks gestation with her second child/pregnancy. First child was delivered via cesarean section. She had chief complaints of chronic migraines, pregnancy-related neck and back pain and ultrasound confirmed placenta previa.  She also had a desire for a vaginal birth.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with Diversified and Drop Table Technique. Following a total of six visits over a six-week time period, the patient’s presenting complaints were addressed and she had a successful VBAC.
