Pre + Post Natal

Osteopathy is a safe, gentle hands-on approach to health which supports women with the aches and pains associated with pregnancy. At Balanced Osteopathy our team work regularly with patients during their pregnancy and after, to help them stay as comfortable as possible throughout the process. There are multiple musculoskeletal pains that can arise during pregnancy that osteopathy can help you with such as:

  • Pelvic girdle pain, including pubic symphysis pain

  • Lower back pain

  • Hip pain

  • Rib pain

  • Headaches related to the neck

Often midwives may suggest you visit an osteopath if these types of pains arise during your pregnancy and we work alongside your health care team to support your body through the changes that occur to the musculoskeletal system during this time.
