Osteopathy For Pregnant Women

Congratulations you’re having a baby! Your body is going through some pretty amazing changes right now and while some people seem to just breeze through the whole nine months, for others it can really take its toll on their body.

If you’re suffering from pregnancy pains, including back pain, hip and pelvic pain, breathlessness and the inability to sleep properly it can leave you feeling low and exhausted.

Osteopathy is a safe and effective way to balance the pelvis and hips, releasing tension and making you feel more comfortable, which often improves your sleep and well-being.

Nargis Ahmad BSc (Hons) Ost has more than 15 years’ experience of using cranial osteopathic techniques that may alleviate lower back pain and pelvic paingive relief to aching shoulders and improve your energy levels, which could help you to carry your baby more comfortably and enjoy this special time of your life.

Is Cranial Osteopathy for you?

Osteopathy is a gentle treatment that may help relieve the stresses and strains on your body during pregnancy and after birth. It could help to relieve the general aches and pains caused by pregnancy, including joint and back pain as well as these other common complaints:

Hip pain
■ Pressure on the diaphragm and ribs
■ Aching shoulders
Pelvic pain
Sciatica and lower back ache

Your path to feeling more comfortable, energised and sleeping better

There is no need to for you to attend osteopathy sessions throughout your pregnancy, although you may decide you want to because of the feeling of well-being it creates.

All clients are different and it is common to experience an improvement in symptoms after the first session, but in most cases it would take a minimum of 3 sessions to rebalance your body and improve your quality of breathing, sleeping and living.

Clients often tell Nargis that taking care of their physical well-being during their pregnancy was a real investment that left them better equipped to cope with the changes in routine when the baby arrived. Many add that it gave them someone they trusted when the baby arrived.
