Pregnancy, Birth & Recovery

Osteopaths Supporting you during your pregnancy

During pregnancy hormone levels change and this often softens ligaments and tissues making them looser and more prone to strain and injury.   Old problems may reoccur and new problems such as pain in the neck shoulder, hips and lower back can also evolve


Have an easier pregnancy by getting treatment for:

  • Aches and Pains from Postural Strain
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Hormonal changes
  • Mood swings and stress
  • Morning sickness
  • Heartburn and reflux
  • Rib pain
  • Hip Pain
  • SPD Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction

Preparing you and your baby for birth

As your baby grows, osteopathy can help you prepare for an easier labour, by making sure the spine and pelvis are working to their optimum. Many patients also report a faster post-partum recovery if they have had treatment during pregnancy.

Also, by making the birthing process easier for both you and your baby, this may influence your baby’s health later on.

We help you by:

  • Balancing the pelvis to facilitate an easier labour
  • Treating on-going symptoms and discomforts
  • Manging stress, anxiety and emotional uncertainty
  • Giving you exercises and breathing techniques to help you through labour
