Osteopathy for Postnatal Women
Osteopaths Treating New Mums
Local health professionals refer to our Osteopaths specifically for the care of postnatal women. We are knowledgeable in the treatment and management of complaints that effect postnatal women. These include pelvic floor strength weakness, back and neck pain and incontinence.
Mums are some of the most neglected people in our community and we have a passion for supporting women through what can be a beautiful, painful and difficult time of rapid change in a families life.
Don’t suffer in silence
Women often suffer in silence with postpartum pain because they think it is normal and expect it. We are here to let you know that high levels of pain are not normal. You should be able to do all normal activities within days to weeks following delivery. This timeframe is extended and adjusted for women with significant complications and or caesar. If you are unable to do normal activities without pain or distress, this is an opportunity to seek assistance.
Women think pelvic floor complaints are normal and must be accepted as a mother. Treatment in conjunction with at home exercises can produce desireable results. Women often think they know how to contract their pelvic floor, but in fact have never been taught and often are not doing it correctly in order to produce noticeable change. We are here to guide you to activate and perform these exercises with confidence.
Taking care of yourself helps you take care of others
Mothers often put themselves last and everyone makes the baby the priority. Your baby is very important and so are you. Without taking impeccable self care, as well as recruiting additional support, it will become more difficult to take care of your baby and or other children.
Your new osteopath regularly consults and treats postnatal women and their babies after birth. We provide nurturing, practical and supportive care in a calm environment. Improve your pelvic floor and core strength, reduce incontinence and get on with life. You are welcome to bring a family member or friend to accompany you to the appointment. Please contact us with any queries or concerns you may have regarding the care of you and or your baby.
