Pregnancy and Postnatal Pain

Osteopathy – the safe natural choice for mums-to-be and new mums

There’s no doubt that pregnancy is one of the most exciting stages in a woman’s life. But pregnancy also causes many changes to occur in a woman’s body both before and after the baby is born. And not all those changes are as pleasant as the magic that’s happening within.

Not only does the skin on the abdomen stretch to accommodate your growing baby, but ligaments, muscles and nerves change too, which may result in pain and discomfort. To prepare for the birth of your baby, your body naturally produces the hormone ‘relaxin’ which, just as its name implies, is designed to relax the ligaments that support your pelvis and spine, resulting in reduced stability.

This in turn can result in one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Lower back pain
  • Shooting pains in the hips, buttocks and spine
  • Pelvic and pubic pain
  • Shoulder tension and neck pain
  • Headaches

Osteopathy is a safe, natural choice for treating pregnancy and postnatal pain

At Central Coast Osteopath we start by assessing you before identifying and gently treating all the regions of your body that may cause you to suffer pain as your baby grows.

That way you can go on and enjoy the magic that’s happening within while continuing to get on with and enjoy daily life.

Then after the baby is born, we can work with you to create a safe, gentle and 100% natural postnatal treatment and self-healing plan designed to help guide your body back into pre-pregnancy state as the changes that occurred during pregnancy begin to reverse.
