During pregnancy the body undergoes dramatic changes to accommodate the growing foetus. As your pregnancy progresses the increasing size of the abdomen will cause a shift in your body’s centre of gravity affecting structures around your low back and pelvis.

Our osteopaths will carefully select the most gentle and appropriate techniques to ensure the comfort of you and your growing baby. Osteopaths can be of assistance for many common complaints associated with pregnancy and the post-natal period including :

  • Lower back pain and sciatica
  • Aching in the legs or feet
  • Nausea or heartburn due to the increased pressure on the stomach and diaphragm
  • Neck, shoulder or middle back pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Circulatory issues including swelling of the feet and hands
  • Postural and stretching advice
