Osteopathy for Babies and Mums To Be
A woman’s body changes during pregnancy, such as the softening of ligaments and changes to posture. This can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.
Osteopathy aims to relieve the stresses and strains on your body during and after pregnancy. Treatment is gentle, specific and safe to address any musculoskeletal issues that are contributing to your individual complaint.
Home care advice and stretches are prescribed to help you manage your symptoms.
Babies can have an enormous amount of strain placed upon their systems from e.g. forceps delivery or a traumatic birth, which can result in many symptoms.
Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle approach using a highly trained sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality throughout the body, and to release areas of strain or dysfunction.
I aim for my baby patients to leave feeling relaxed and soothed, and for parents to feel confident and reassured.
I have private parking right outside my practice, and so bringing little ones to an appointment is safe and easy!
In certain circumstances, I can provide a home visit appointment. Please contact me for more information.
