During pregnancy, and especilally in the last few weeks of gestation, expectant mothers often experience back pain, pelvic pain, sometime sciatica, and general discomfort.
In the pregnancy clinic, our osteopath have a great expertise to help alleviate these pains, using massage, osteopathy and cranisacral osteopathy.
Having a few sessions of osteopathy or cranio-sacral oateopathy from 36 weeks onward is an excellent preparation to giving birth, as well as one of the best way of reducing all the discomfort associated with later stage of pregnancy.
During the birth process, a baby is subjected to enormous forces, as the uterus pushes to expel the baby against the natural resistance of the birth canal. The baby has to turn and twist as it squeezes through the bony pelvis, on its short but highly stimulating and potentially stressful journey. The baby's head has the remarkable ability to absorb these stresses in a normal delivery. In order to reduce the size of the head, the soft bones overlap, bend and warp as the baby descends. The baby's chin is normally well tucked down towards its chest to reduce the presenting diameter of the head.
Many babies are born with odd shaped heads as a result. In the first few days, the head can usually be seen to gradually lose the extreme moulded shape, as the baby suckles, cries and yawns. However, this unmoulding process is often incomplete, especially if the birth has been difficult. As a result, the baby may have to live with some very uncomfortable stresses within its head and body.
