While undoubtedly one of the happiest periods in a woman’s life, pregnancy is also uncomfortable and at times painful. During pregnancy enormous physical, chemical and emotional changes take place over a relatively short period of time. The body has to get used to carrying a lot of extra weight, which can impose physical strain on the organs, tissues, joints and ligaments of the body. In order for the pregnant body to adapt to all these changes it has to find new ways to walk, sit and sleep resulting with new aches and pains arising.
Osteopathy can ease some of the symptoms that arise during pregnancy including:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Lower abdominal pain
- Nausea and vomitin
As well as easing pregnancy symptoms, an osteopath can also
- Provide advice on breathing techniques, stretches and exercise you can do to maintain your health and wellbeing throughout your pregnancy
- Help facilitate a trouble free birth by improving flexibility in the pelvis
- Help the mother to recover after birth.
