Osteopathy for pregnancy & babies
Preparation for labour | Pregnancy-related pain | Post-birth pain | Colic and reflux | Suckling problems
Childbirth can be a traumatic experience for mother and baby. Osteopathic treatment is a great way to remove unnecessary strains sustained during birth, for example from compression forces from forceps, or after a prolonged labour.
For pregnant women and new mothers – osteopathic treatment is very helpful in treating pregnancy-related or post-birth pain, as well as the strains involved in looking after an infant.
For babies – treatment can help with colic, reflux, suckling problems, recurrent ear problems, and poor sleeping patterns.
In young children – osteopathic treatment can help with rebalancing strains after falls and/or other injuries sustained during such active years.
Both Alana and Gail are experienced in treating babies and infants and can see your baby from shortly after birth.
The great thing about osteopathy is that many patients seek treatment as a form of warrant of fitness.
Patients are encouraged to become proactive rather than reactive, and visit us at our clinic in Wellington on a semi-regular basis to ensure those aches and pains that creep up over time are kept away.
