Making space for your baby is important
Your baby needs room to develop and grow freely in order to avoid moulding and compression issues, The gentle relaxing techniques of Obstetric Osteopathy used to relax the abdomen and pelvic cavity provide that space. It gives the space your the baby move and turn itself if in a breech position or sitting high in the abdomen. This is particularly important if it is your first pregnancy.
As birth approaches preparing the body for labor becomes important.
Giving birth can be made very much easier by preparing the body for labor. Any past trauma or injuries which have affected the back, ribs, diaphragm pelvis, sacrum or coccyx may make labor more difficult than it needs to be. Lower back, Sacroiliac, Hip, Pelvic and Coccygeal issues will directly create difficulties for the pelvis to expand during labor. Gently easing out, releasing and rebalancing these issues with good obstetric osteopathy has made many women’s experience of labor much shorter and easier.
