ease the strain of pregnancy and childbirth
Osteopathy during pregnancy can yield great results from just a little treatment. Expectant mothers have new and unusual pressures on their bodies, with the combination of increased weight, changed carriage and fluid retention placing extra stress on the spine. But back pain should never be a feature of pregnancy. Gentle treatment to help rebalance the spine and pelvis will not only reduce discomfort while carrying the baby, but may also actually make the delivery easier. Our approach can also prove helpful post-natally, helping the woman’s body readjust a little faster and, importantly, assisting the newborn to overcome any imbalances that may have occurred during the trauma of birth.
