Pregnancy is such a special moment in a woman’s life. Enormous physical, hormonal and physiological changes take place in a relatively short period of time.
Osteopathy can help relieve from numerous pregnancy related aches, such as low back, pelvic & groin pain. It can also be helpful for shallow breathing, gastric reflux & sciatica related pain.
Symptoms like those are very common in pregnancy, but this shouldn’t mean that you need to suffer !
Expecting a baby is a unique and special experience. The body has to adapt to carry up an extra 20lbs!
Osteopaths use gentle techniques to treat symptoms such as joint mobilizations, ligaments & positional release and many others. Those techniques are perfectly safe at all stages of pregnancy. Mother & child safety is obviously our primary concern.
Our objective is to improve your quality of life, allowing the mother to enjoy her pregnancy:
- Improve the chances of a straight forward birth
- Help starting labour after term delivery
- Ease pregnancy aches at any stage
- Personnalized advices for home comfort
Number of sessions
We recommand 1 session for every trimester of pregnancy (3 in total), as the symptoms will vary from one trimester to another.
A post-natal consultation can also help you recover faster after the birth. Your body will go through a new process of going back to “non pregnant” state. Osteopathy assists the mother being comfortable again (during walking, bending and seating), to fully enjoy her new parent’s life.
