Are You Pregnant?

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Would you like to maximise your chances of a straight forward birth?

 

Did you know osteopathic treatment can improve birth outcomes? (1)

 

As well as helping to relieve back , pelvic and pubic symphysis pain, heartburn and headaches during pregnancy, recent research has shown better birth outcomes in women who have osteopathic treatment during pregnancy (1). 

Treatment is gentle and can help to balance out your pelvis and spine. This is thought to help the baby to enter the pelvis as level as possible as well as ease it's passage through the birth canal.

Sharon has also found that linking osteo treatment with the Calmbirth courses (www.calmbirth.com.au) plus good nutrition can all add up to a more straight forward, happier delivery....

BUT please don't leave it too late ! If you want your pelvis checked out for the birth, come along as soon as you can. That way, if there are any major issues, we have a bit of time to sort them out.

Heartburn and pelvic pain?

Friday, July 27, 2012

 

Did you know that osteopathic treatment can help relieve heartburn during pregnancy?

 

Did you also know that quite often you get Heartburn and pelvic pain together?

 

The diameter of a woman's rib cage is meant to expand by up to 9cm over the course of her pregnancy, to make room for the baby.

For this to happen, she needs a nice flexible ribcage and a happy, stretchy diaphragm.

The diaphragm is not only the main breathing muscle, but it also has the food pipe pass through it to get to the stomach. Any tightness through the lower ribs and the diaphragm can not only worsen heartburn, but it can also reduce the room for baby.

As the baby grows and the uterus expands, if the diaphragm and lower ribs don't lift up and out of the way , the baby has to stay low and find room in the pelvis. This increases the load on mums' pelvis and means we often see pelvic and pubic symphysis or pelvic pain go hand in hand.

 

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT !!

 

We can help the heartburn and the pelvic pain. Call 02 9907 8919 now for further information or to make an appointment.
