During pregnancy, your body undergoes a tremendous amount of change to accommodate your growing baby. This, along with hormonal changes, leads to an alteration in your centre of gravity, increased laxity of ligaments and fluid retention. These changes put extra strain on your joints and muscles and may lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms.
Osteopathy treatment aims to assist the body in adapting to the changes the body undergoes as pregnancy progresses and helps to prepare the body for labour. This is achieved through various hands-on techniques, along with advice for exercise and stretching.
Postnatal treatment may also be beneficial to help you recover from the unresolved stresses from childbirth and can help resolve the aches & pains that are commonly associated with breastfeeding, lifting and carrying your new baby.
