It is common for a mother to become so busy with looking after their baby, that they don´t find the time to get help and treatment for the aches and pains they can experience after birth. Following birth our specialists will help the mother’s body to spring back to normal with the help of Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy and prescriptive pilates exercises.
Babies are subjected to enormous forces, as the uterus pushes to expel the baby against the natural resistance of the birth canal. A baby´s head has the remarkable ability to absorb these stresses during delivery. The soft bones of the skull overlap and warp to reduce the size of the head as the baby descends.
Many babies are born with unusual shaped heads, and in the first few days the head can be seen to gradually lose the extreme mould shape as the baby suckles, yawns and cries. However, some babies are left with unwanted compression throughout their bodies. This can occur if the birth has been difficult, especially if the birth is prolonged or fast or involved the use of forceps or ventouse.
Constant crying, irritability, colic and wind, feeding difficulties and sleep disturbance are common symptoms that are often attributable to such stresses and strains.
Cranial osteopathy uses gentle manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the head and the rest of the body, thus helping to calm your baby.
At Posture Dynamics we make it flexible and easy to book an appointment with one of our Cranial specialists for both mother and baby at the same time. Contact our cranial osteopaths to find out more information on how cranial osteopathy can help you and your baby.
