During pregnancy and birth, a womans body experiences many demands and extraordinary changes. As weight increases changes are required in the body’s posture, hormones soften ligaments and as the baby grows pressure is place on various parts of the body including the spine and pelvis.
Osteopathy can help the body adapt and balance to accommodate these changes. This is helpful during pregnancy and preparation for birth. Your osteopath will be able to advise you on specific exercises which may also be beneficial.
