Pregnancy and Post-natal care
Pregnancy produces the largest postural change that a woman’s body will ever undergo. As the baby grows in the womb and extra weight is gained, the centre of gravity alters resulting in postural changes from week to week. This may lead to a variety of aches and pains.
Problems like these are so common in pregnancy that they are often considered normal. This should not mean that you need to suffer! Pain or discomfort is a sign that your body is struggling to adapt to its new shape.
Osteopathic treatment will maximise your body’s ability to change and support you and your baby.
Osteopathy can help provide relief from numerous pregnancy related issues such as PGP, SPD, pelvic and low back pain, by creating better balance of structures such as ligaments and muscles, with the goal of relieving pain and ultimately promoting a straight forward birth.
