During pregnancy your body will experience physiological and postural changes as it accommodates your growing baby. A mother’s centre of gravity moves forward as her baby grows. This increases the curvature of her lumbar spine, leading to lower back pain and tension through the upper back and neck. It is not uncommon to feel discomfort through the pelvic area because of the position and weight of the baby alongside the changes in laxity of the ligaments in this area.
Osteopathic treatment can support your body to adjust to these normal
challenges of pregnancy. Treatment can also prepare your body for the birthing process.
Treatment post-delivery can aid recovery and help with postural strain from breast feeding and caring for a new baby.
