  • Treatment for your
    changing body

    during and after pregnancy

Support and improve your pregnancy health with osteopathy

Are you experiencing pain or discomfort as your body changes with pregnancy? This is the case for many women. Pregnancy may cause pre-existing conditions (such as back pain) to flare up or you may suffer from other discomforts including: 
  • Neck and back pain as a result of changed weight bearing
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Respiratory issues – shortness of breath or difficulty with full breathing
  • Circulation difficulties – including swollen feet or hands
  • Nausea, heartburn and other internal issues
  • Difficulty adjusting posture to find a comfortable lying, standing or sitting position

Osteopathy for pregnancy may be able to assist with all of these through manual treatment and appropriate rehabilitation and strengthening techniques and advice. 

It’s very important that you look after your body during pregnancy - in all facets that include your musculoskeletal system, dietary requirements and intake, rest, appropriate exercise and with minimal stress!! Our goal is to create optimal health, so you are assured your hands on treatment is tailored to your body, presentation of pain and your lifestyle.

Advice and treatment for new mothers

Once your baby is born, you may continue to find new or ongoing pain issues. Lower back and neck pain is common for new mothers as there is so much lifting, bending and carrying involved. You may also require some treatment to help your pelvis recover post birth. 

Follow up treatments post baby may be beneficial for hands on treatment for postural complaints due to extended hours sitting, breast or bottle feeding, as well as carrying capsules/prams and your baby! We can advise you about how to care for yourself including: 
  • Strengthening exercises – particularly core strength
  • Stretching techniques
  • Postural advice
  • Exercise recommendations
