LOUISE BOYER osteopath
Having had experience at the expectant mothers clinic in the BSO and taking a course in treating expectant mothers as an elective subject I can honestly say this area of osteopathy is a pleasure to be involved in. Whilst pregnant many women find that they develop aches and pains where none were before. Osteopathy is a safe and tested method for helping with these problems and can also be used to help prepare mum for giving birth by maintaining mobility around the hips and pelvis.
Breathing can be improved by working with the ribs and diaphragm and by mobilising the thoracic spine which can aid mum in the birthing process and make for a calmer, happier experience, thus helping baby to be born into a warm and comfortable environment stress free.
