Family Osteopathic Care: Supporting Pregnant Women and Families in the North Shore

In the journey of family life, from the anticipation of a new baby to the everyday health of all family members, osteopathy has emerged as a gentle yet powerful ally. At North Shore Osteopathy, we specialise in providing comprehensive osteopathic care tailored for the entire family, with a particular focus on supporting pregnant women through this transformative phase of life.


The Unique Needs of Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is a time of profound change. A woman’s body undergoes significant alterations to accommodate the growing baby, which can sometimes bring discomfort or pain. This is where osteopathy steps in, offering a helping hand. Our approach is designed to support the body’s natural ability to adapt to these changes.

  • Preconception Care: Preparing the body for pregnancy is as crucial as the pregnancy itself. Addressing pre-existing injuries and ensuring the body is in a balanced state can lay the groundwork for a smoother pregnancy.
  • During Pregnancy: As the baby grows, the body must continually adapt to changing postural demands. Our osteopathic care focuses on maximising pelvic mobility and overall body flexibility, which may help in minimising potential complications during labour.
  • Postnatal Recovery: The postnatal period is a time for recovery and readjustment. Our treatment aims to gently ease sore muscles and rebalance the pelvis, addressing issues that may arise from breastfeeding and caring for the newborn.


Is Osteopathic Treatment Safe During Pregnancy?

The safety of the mother and baby is our utmost priority. The techniques used in osteopathic treatment during pregnancy are extremely gentle and are specifically chosen based on each individual’s condition and needs.


The Holistic Approach for the Whole Family

Our commitment extends beyond prenatal and postnatal care. We believe in the holistic wellness of the entire family unit. Whether it’s addressing the aches and pains of growing children, managing the physical stressors on parents, or simply ensuring each family member maintains optimal musculoskeletal health, our team is dedicated to supporting families in their health journey.
