The mechanical and emotional strains of pregnancy and labour may not come to light until after the delivery and therefore postnatal care is often indicated to help a mother cope with the after effects and challenges.  Your body goes through sudden changes in shape, size and hormonal balance, which can put extra strain on your body, make joints hypermobile and ligaments extra stretchy. You also have to adapt to the lack of sleep, feeding & caring for your new baby, carrying car seats, pushing / lifting prams etc.  Osteopathy can help new mums:

  • Restore and maintain pelvic alignment
  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Regain strength and flexibility
  • Establish good breastfeeding techniques & comfort
  • Manage your new baby without straining your own body
  • Regain fitness and wellbeing through to advice on exercise

“You don’t realise the power of a good stretch as a new mum (especially as a first time mum)”
