Pre to post-partum support with Osteopathy!

Did you know up to 50% of women experience pains at some stage throughout their pregnancy?

It’s common and you’re not alone. Your body will experience a series of mechanical, postural and hormonal transformations in pregnancy, that can lead to discomfort and pain, particularly in the pelvis and lower back.

Osteopaths can provide manual therapy, exercise support and postural advice, helping the mother-to-be find pain relief and improved wellbeing. We’re sharing some common questions and tips when it comes to osteopathic treatment during pregnancy.

Can I exercise during pregnancy?

Exercise and movement can be helpful in reducing pain during pregnancy and may improve your overall health and wellbeing. Depending on your gestation, pain, and any clinical conditions your osteopath can provide an

individualised exercise program and advice to help with improving your strength, flexibility and overall health.

Selfcare = Selflove

Selfcare is so important, not only to reduces stress, but to ensure you and your baby are getting what you need to stay healthy throughout. These might be simple things including:

  • Eating a well-balanced, high-fibre diet and choosing meals that can bolster your mood and milk supply while delivering key nutrients to you and your baby.

  • Drinking plenty of water.

  • Connecting regularly to family and friends for assistance, care or support for you and your baby.

  • Reaching out to the Australian Breastfeeding Association, lactation consultant or paediatrician for breastfeeding advice; or if you decide that breastfeeding isn’t for you, rest assured your little one will get all the nutrients they need from formula.

  • Ensuring adequate rest and sleep.

  • Speaking with your GP about any conditions like irregular bleeding, mastitis, or post-natal depression.
