Osteopathy For New Mums:


Improved healing of the surgical scar:

Osteopathic treatment can help improve circulation and lymphatic drainage in the area of the scar, which can promote healing and reduce the risk of complications such as adhesions.


Relaxation of tight muscles & relief from discomfort:

C-sections can result in tightness and tension in the abdominal and back muscles, which can lead to discomfort and even pain. Osteopathic techniques can help relax these muscles, reducing discomfort and promoting better mobility.


Improved pelvic alignment:

C-sections may also affect the alignment of the hips and pelvis, which can cause issues with posture and movement. Osteopathy can help realign the pelvis and improve overall movement and function so that you can pick up baby with more ease.


An opportunity to lay down and be looked after:

Parenthood is so rewarding, but can be challenging! Osteopathy can help alleviate stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation and well-being through restoration of the rest and digest function of the nervous system.



Osteopathy For Babies:


Reduce musculoskeletal tension:

Osteopathy can help to relieve musculoskeletal tension in babies that may have resulted from their position in utero or strain caused during the birth - C-section included.


Relieve digestive upset:

Osteopathic treatment can help reduce symptoms of digestive upset in young infants - such as spilling, reflux, bloating, straining, constipation, and difficulty winding.


Improve feed & latch:


Reduce flat spots on the head and head favoring:

Osteopathic treatment can help improve head shape asymmetries and neck mobility.



Overall

Osteopathy can be a safe and effective way to support recovery after C-section births, helping to alleviate discomfort and promote optimal healing and well-being.
