Looking for an osteopath during your pregnancy in Mernda or Doreen?

The team at Bodywell Healthcare is dedicated to helping support pregnant and post-natal women.

Changes during pregnancy – Throughout pregnancy, your body undergoes significant changes to accommodate a growing baby. Expansion of the abdominal region and the associated alterations in posture, alongside release of hormones that soften the ligaments can all put additional stress on the body. Osteopathic treatment aims to maximise your body’s ability to cope with pregnancy-related changes and may assist with a range of musculoskeletal complaints during and after pregnancy. Our osteopaths can also offer advice about managing various symptoms and demonstrate self-help techniques that you and your partner can use during pregnancy and labour.

Birthing and beyond – Osteopathic care aims to maximise the body’s alignment and pelvic and  lower back mobility to help prepare for the birthing process. After the birth, osteopathic treatment may be helpful for restoring overall physical wellbeing and to assist with preventing or managing a range of musculoskeletal problems. This might include referral to your doctor or other health professionals as appropriate.
