Osteopathy for new mums, babies and children
A woman’s body is subject to changes during pregnancy. These changes include the softening of ligaments, increase in weight and changes to posture. This can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine and pelvis.
Our treatments will help your body recover from these additional stresses and strains placed upon it during pregnancy, as well as additional mechanical stresses placed upon it caring for a baby; extra bending and carrying, or by adopting unsuitable nursing positions.
Osteopathy for babies and children
Babies skeletons are softer than an adult’s, we therefore use gentler techniques such as cranial Osteopathy when treating babies. Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative, and can help to soothe and relax your baby.
Osteopathy is suitable for children at all stages of development, we can assess your child to see what might help.
Our treatments will also help your body recover from the additional stresses placed upon it during pregnancy, as well as additional stresses placed upon it caring for baby, including:
- Ongoing back problems, headaches
- Body strains caused by extra bending and carrying, or by adopting unsuitable nursing positions
If postnatal stresses and strains are spoiling your new family life, call the practice on 01305 265333 to arrange an appointment or to talk through your problem with one of our specialist osteopaths.
