Q: What does the mums and bubs booking entail?

A: The mums and bubs booking with our Hamilton osteopaths is designed to address the unique needs of both mothers and their babies over a period of time that gives mums the space to think and speak freely. Our experienced osteopaths will assess and treat any musculoskeletal issues, provide advice on postpartum care, and offer guidance on baby-related concerns. We can refer you to other specialists as needed - such as for clicky hips or concerning head shapes. We can also direct you to discuss certain issues with your mid wife or Plunket. This comprehensive approach aims to promote the well-being of both mum and baby.

Q: What is the duration of the mums and bubs booking option?

A: The mums and bubs booking option at TLC Osteopaths typically lasts for one hour. This allows our osteopaths to address specific concerns related to both the mother and the baby in a no rush setting. This also allows time for feeding and nappy changes should they occur during your appointment. You can divide the time between you and the baby as you like. Sometimes, baby may take nearly the entire appointment, other times it may be a 50/50 split.

A: The price is $130.

Q: Who are the osteopaths that conduct the mums and bubs consultations?

Given that there is no high level formal qualification required for osteopaths to treat babies, we wish to assure you that Tessa and Jess are dedicated to providing high level care to ensure the best possible outcomes for both mother and baby. Both osteopaths spend their time reading the latest research and attending courses to make sure they are helping you in the best ways possible.

Comfortable clothing for both mother and baby is recommended, as the osteopath may need to assess and treat specific areas. It is a good idea to bring a change of nappy for the baby too.

Q: How can I prepare my baby for the appointment, and what can I expect during the consultation?

These questions help guide our osteopaths in addressing your specific concerns.
