Pre and Post-Natal Osteopathy

Why would you have osteopathy when you are pregnant?

 

  • Are you experiencing lower back, mid back, neck, rib or pelvic pain?

  • Do you have heart burn?

  • Are you finding it awkward to move around?

Osteopathy can help to relieve or prevent these symptoms leaving you feeling less in pain and therefore, more relaxed and energetic. Pain in pregnancy is very common (between 50 – 80 per cent of women get back pain at some point during their pregnancy). Although this may be deemed relatively normal, why should you have to put up with it when it CAN be treated quickly and effectively without harming mother or baby.

 

“A baby is something you carry inside you for 9 months, in your arms for 3 years, and in your heart until the day you die.”

Mary Mason
