Osteopathy and Pregnancy

I developed sever back pain quite quickly from my second to third trimester with SPD. I saw Collette and with regular treatment the pain eased and she readied my body for labour - which was long but uncomplicated!

A mother’s body changes rapidly during pregnancy with aches and pains developing. Osteopathy during pregnancy helps relieve and prevent these symptoms for a pain free and comfortable pregnancy.

As your pregnancy progresses you will see your body changing by the day and osteopathy can help your body cope with these changes to ensure you are in the right shape structurally for a natural birth.

Our osteopaths help guide your body to keep you pain-free and help to prepare your body for the stresses and strains of labour and birth. 



Pre Natal Osteopathy helps pregnant women with those pregnancy aches and pains. These are caused by the body struggling with the rapid physical, chemical and emotional changes occurring whilst your baby grows, putting your muscles, joints and connective tissues under extra pressure.
The hormone 'relaxin' is released which helps the pelvic joints relax enough to make way for the baby. Unfortunately this hormone affects the whole body leaving joints vulnerable to injury and strain.
Pre Natal Osteopathy is particularly advised at this time to help your body adapt and ensure the expectant mother's safety by reducing the chance of injury.
