Responsible for a great change in posture, pregnancy can cause back pain and discomfort. Many women find gentle osteopathic treatment can bring great relief. We are experienced at treating mothers and babies for a whole range of symptoms from low backache to heartburn during pregnancy and digestive problems and poor feeding or sleeping (restlessness) in the infant, following the birth and beyond. We use gentle and specific structural (massage, mobilising and manipulation) and cranial techniques and offer advice on exercise and health. There are often specific changes in posture and weight bearing (how the baby is carried) at certain times during the pregnancy and after, the osteopath can explain this and advise you on your spine, posture and curves as to whether and when you may need treatment. If you would like to discuss this further or if we can be of help then do please call.
