Osteopathy and Pregnancy

Our osteopaths are trained and experienced practitioners in maternity care. They will carry out a full consultation and assessment to initially see if osteopathy is suitable for you. Treatment is gentle, specific and safe to address any musculoskeletal issues that are contributing to your individual complaint. Post treatment advice and exercises are also prescribed as appropriate.

A woman’s body changes during pregnancy. Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture. That 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. Please contact us to discuss your particular concerns prior to booking.

"Pain in pregnancy is common but shouldn't be accepted as normal. In fact pregnant women respond far quicker to treatment than those who aren't pregnant."
