How Osteopathy can help Mum to be
During pregnancy enormous physical, chemical and emotional changes take place over a relatively short period of time. The body has to get used to carrying up to 20lb/10kg of baby, water and placenta, which imposes great physical strain on the organs, tissues, joints and ligaments of the body. Adapting to these changes, your body has to find new ways to walk, sit and sleep, producing new aches and pains and magnifying existing ones. Osteopathy can help your body adjust to these, often painful, changes.
