Preparing your Body for Pregnancy

Wherever possible pre-planning for a pregnancy can be helpful in preparing the body for the changes that will take place during the course of the pregnancy. To go into the pregnancy with the spine and pelvis in correct alignment is ideal. Mis-alignment or restricted joint movement can be as a result of an un-resolved injury as a young girl and which may resurface with the stresses and strains of pregnancy.

Osteopathy can help to align the spine and pelvis making it easier for the body to make the necessary adaptaions throughout the pregnancy.
