The aim of Birthcare is to ensure that your baby gets the best start in life. In order to do this it is essential to help you feel as comfortable and happy as possible. You should not have to worry about anything.
The extra weight that you carry out front puts a forward traction on your skeleton, pulling spinal joints out of line, while stretching and causing excess muscle tension in your legs, pelvis and lower back. The problems this causes can be amplified by pre-existing conditions. In addition to this, as the pregnancy progresses, the ligaments that hold your pelvis together stretch to allow expansion during birth. This loosening of ligaments can lead to slippage of joints and extremely painful conditions such as pubic symphysis dysfunction (SPD or PSD), pelvic girdle pain syndrome (PGP).
These syndromes can often be remedied through a gentle chiropractic realignment of the pelvis combined with craniosacral muscle release techniques. There are also some simple exercises you can do at home to help keep your pelvis aligned.
Other conditions that women experience during pregnancy include back pain, sciatica, thoracic pain, abdominal pain, hip pain, neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome and plantar fasciitis. We can help your achieve relief if you experience any of these.
