Pregnancy

Osteopathy pregancy

Pregnancy is a very special time for an expectant mother. During pregnancy, your body undergoes major changes and in order to adapt to these, a hormone called relaxin is released.

Relaxin allows the ligaments throughout your body to soften and stretch, helping your body adapt as your baby grows inside you. Some women have difficulty adapting to these changes, causing undue strain on the spine, neck and shoulders, which can be uncomfortable and even painful.
