Pregnancy is an extreme strain for the mother’s body and adjusting to the changes during pregnancy is not always free of pain. During the first trimester the most important developmental changes take place in the growth of the fetus. During the first trimester, the mother typically experiences nausea and fatigue. During this phase, the treatment does not have a major effect on the symptoms.
During the second trimester and the final months of pregnancy, the typical ailments like round ligament pain, heartburn, and contractions can be helped by osteopathy. The treatment balances the movement of the hip and prevents tension in the hip and lower back. The healing is soft, safe and prepares the hip well for the child birth.
