During pregnancy, your body changes A LOT!

It is unsurprising that an expectant mum may feel all sorts of aches and pains, including back and pelvic pain, as her body struggles to adapt. Would you like to feel more comfortable and better prepared for your baby’s birth?

Osteopathic treatment during and after pregnancy can help to:

In pregnancy, a little treatment goes a long way

  • ease some of the physical discomforts of pregnancy such as low back pain and headaches arising from the neck
  • help recovery after birth

Gentle osteopathic techniques are perfectly safe at all stages of pregnancy. The good news is that your body is changing rapidly during pregnancy and a little treatment will go a long way.

 

Treatment post-pregnancy

After having your baby, your body may return to normal quickly – but not necessarily. Carrying a baby (even a small one!) around can take its toll on your body as can feeding, whether by breast or bottle.

In addition to treating you, we can advise you on feeding postures (don’t forget to swap sides if you are bottle feeding) and ways to carry your baby to reduce the strain.

With so much focus on your baby, why not let us look after you at this special time?

 Special Offer – half price treatment

We love to see both mums and babies in clinic and think that treatment at this time is particularly important for both of you. So much so that if we have seen mum in clinic when pregnant, then baby’s first appointment is half price. Likewise, if we have seen baby, then mum’s post-natal check is half price. Visit our appointments page to book an appointment.

At Wimborne Osteopathic Clinic we are always very happy to discuss your individual concerns and requirements.
