OSTEOPATHY IN PREGNANCY AND NEW MUMS
Osteopathy in Pregnancy
Throughout pregnancy, your posture and mechanics change to adapt to your developing baby. Your ligaments soften, the curves in your spine (especially through your lower back) become exaggerated and your centre of gravity moves forwards. All these adaptations put extra pressure on the joints, muscles and ligaments in your spine and pelvis and can cause discomfort or pain. Osteopathic treatment supports the body through these changes, especially during the mid to final stages of the pregnancy.
Osteopathic techniques used during pregnancy are gentle and non-invasive, they are safe for both the mother and the baby.

Osteopathy for new mums
Following the birth of your baby, it is not unusual to experience aches and pains caused by the mechanic stress of labour as well as the new physical activities that caring for a newborn entails such as carrying them, their car capsules and prams, holding them in their feeding position and bending to change your baby.
Osteopathic treatment can get you out of pain and help your body cope. Alongside gentle treatment, you will also be advised on strengthening exercises, improving your posture as well as your positioning during the aforementioned activities to reduce stress on your body.
