Once your baby has arrived, your body has to deal with the effects of the dramatic changes that occurred during pregnancy and now the effects caused by the labour and delivery. Trying to cope with this, as well as the demands a newborn places on you (e.g. the intensity of breast/bottle feeding, lack of sleep in the early months, awkward carrying postures you adopt when you are tired) can be extremely challenging. Mentally and physically it is important to get your body back functioning normally. Osteopathic treatment may help to release the stresses and strains caused by pregnancy and labour, which in turn lets you enjoy your newest addition to your family.
At the Willow Clinic, Vanessa could help to reduce any pain and discomfort you may be experiencing whilst your body goes through this change, as well as preparing it for the upcoming challenge of delivery and the demands of a newborn.
