Osteopathy During and After Pregnancy

Through out your pregnancy you may experience aches and pains as your body adapts with the growing baby!

Osteopathy is a completely safe form of treatment to have whilst pregnant. An Osteopath can help you adapt to the changes that occur as the baby grows and develops and help make your pregnancy more comfortable!

Common complaints during pregnancy might be;

  • Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction
  • Pelvic Girdle Pain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Upper back and neck pain
  • Hip pain

 


Once your baby is born you may get aches and pains from the pregnancy, the birth itself or from all the newly daily jobs that you’ll be doing as a new mum! Putting your baby in the cot, getting them in and out of the car seat, breastfeeding them, bathing them…the list goes on and on. Although none of these tasks seem particularly strenuous, doing them over and over again when you’re body isn’t back to 100% can lead to little niggles and injuries. An Osteopath can help relieve your pain and advise you on how to make these tasks more manageable.
