Gift Voucher- Pregnancy Osteopathic Appointment
A woman's body goes through many changes during pregnancy. These changes include softening of ligaments, changes in body dynamics and postural changes. This can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.
Pregnancy can therefore cause general aches and pains including joint and back pain. Osteopathy may help relieve these stresses and strains on your body during pregnancy and postpartum, making you more comfortable. We make sure that you are comfortable during your treatment, providing pillows and support on the treatment couch.
Osteopathic treatment is rooted in osteopathic philosophy, which is to treat the body as a whole. As osteopaths we believe that the healthy balance and function of the musculoskeletal framework of the body is essential to whole body health.
Osteopaths are trained to screen for medical conditions and will tell you if you need to see another health professional such as your doctor or your midwife.
After birth, the mother often brings baby for treatment, but not herself! Discomfort and tension in the mother's back, neck, hips and pelvis in the weeks and months after birth can be addressed through gentle osteopathic techniques.
Once you have purchased the gift voucher, we will send you explanation on how to offer it and use it.
