Osteopathy Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a life changing experience for a women. However, pregnancy is a difficult and painful experience, and in some cases it can be traumatic for the mother. During pregnancy, the body continually adjusts to make room for the fetus, increased fluid, and the placenta. It is not uncommon for the mother to suffer from aches and pains, all of which can contribute to bad posture.

During this time, the body goes through huge physical, hormonal and, emotional transitions within a short period of time. This can be difficult for the body to deal with. So the body compensates by releasing a hormone known as relaxin, which helps the body to adapt to the changes more easily. But on the down side, it makes the body more vulnerable to pain, and posture issues.

This is where osteopathy and its gentle, subtle hand techniques come in. Osteopathy is highly beneficial for pregnancy as it can help reduce pains and many pregnancy related conditions. See the conditions it treats and the benefits:
