Pregnancy and New Mum’s
When women are pregnant significant changes occur in their bodies both structurally and hormonally – I should know I’ve been through it four times!
Our bodies change to adapt to the growing baby and to prepare us to give birth, but these changes mean that many of us experience back and joint pain amongst other uncomfortable symptoms.
And once you’ve given birth the stresses and strains of looking after a new born can take its toll on us too – our bodies are suddenly bending and twisting in a way that they are not used to, whilst our bodies are readjusting to life after pregnancy (just think of putting baby into a car seat) which can bring on all sorts of back shoulder and neck pain.
Osteopaths are trained to help relieve many of these symptoms and help your body prepare for the birth and beyond.
As an osteopath interested in pregnancy and post natal issues, I get a lot of referrals from local mid wives and NCT teachers. I’ve done a lot of post graduate courses that focus on this area, worked in a clinic in Oxford that focussed exclusively on pregnancy and post natal problems and have trained for 1 1/2 years as an NCT teacher. I also have a special interest in Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP, formerly known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction or SPD) and am on the Pelvic Partnership expert practitioner list (for more information on the condition click here (http://pelvicpartnership.org.uk/treatment/) to be redirected to the pelvic partnership website).
If you’re suffering from any kind of pain during your pregnancy or now that you’re a new mum, don’t! Give me a call and let’s discuss how I might be able to help.
