PRENATAL, PEDIATRIC & POSTNATAL OSTEOPATHY

Prenatal Osteopathic care may begin at any stage during pregnancy,

Postpartum care anytime after your baby is born, and

Pediatric Osteopathy care may begin your newborn's very first day of life. 

Prenatal Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a non-invasive manual therapy, based on the premise that when the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself. 

 

The body has a self-regulatory mechanism which will provide optimal compensation for the stresses of pregnancy if they are free to work efficiently.

Prenatal Osteopathy Treatment aims to restore optimal function in all of the body’s systems as it evolves through the stages of pregnancy.

PATIENT OUTCOME

Pediatric Osteopathy

When your baby is born, it can take time for them to get used to a world outside of the womb. ​

Stresses and strains from labour and pregnancy can lead to unsettled behaviour and difficulties with latching & feeding, winding, reflux, bowel movements and sleeping.

Relieving any physical strains with gentle osteopathic techniques can be helpful and relaxing for your baby.

An osteopathic check-up following the birth can be useful in identifying and alleviating restrictions so your baby can rest comfortably and continue to develop with ease.

For both baby and mommy comfort, home visits are recommended.
