We can offer support during both the prenatal and postpartum periods.

During pregnancy, significant physical and hormonal changes occur within a woman’s body. These include the softening of ligaments and postural changes, all of which lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, and which are often felt most acutely within the spine or pelvis. Osteopathy works to balance any alignment issues, improve mobility, and ease tightened muscles (and joints) to relieve the associated pain and tension.

How can Osteopathy help?

Treatment techniques are designed to be safe and gentle, and involve a careful combination of soft stretches, massage, and small amounts of pressure being applied to reduce any pregnancy related pain or discomfort. 

Osteopathy can also prove to be beneficial during the postpartum period, for both mother and baby. Birth is a demanding process and many Mums seek osteopathic intervention as part of their own recovery, and to discuss and manage any concerns they may have with their baby’s early physical development. Cranial osteopathy can prove to be effective at alleviating any physical, birth-related trauma, and in addressing issues such as poor sleeping and feeding patterns which can be attributed to poor range of movement in baby’s neck and jaw. 

An osteopath can gently support and enhance your baby’s mobility and overall development, relieving any potentially avoidable stresses and strains, and allowing them to be more comfortable and settled.
