Helping mother and baby before and after birth
Our treatments provide an excellent way to prepare for the birth of your baby. Moreover after even the most ideal birth, both you and the baby may be experiencing some stresses and discomfort. So help at this early stage may prevent many problems later on, especially if the birth has been difficult. Treatments also may be beneficial for many children’s problems, including the effects of birth trauma, difficulties arising from dental work, headaches, breathing difficulties, glue ear and sleeping disorders.
How can Craniosacral Therapy help pregnancy, birth and babies?
Babies’ bones at birth are soft and not fully formed, and so can easily become misaligned and compressed. Even the most ideal birth can still be a challenging experience for a mother or baby. This can lead some babies to find it hard to sleep, to cry a lot, or to have feeding difficulties. Craniosacral Therapy may free up compression of bones and tissues and realign the body’s structures, as well as rebalancing the nervous system. It may contribute to the clearing of any residual effects of anaesthesia, surgery or drugs. It promotes deep rest, allowing both mother and baby to rebuild strength and undergo healing. Craniosacral Therapy can also be of great help in relieving back or muscular pain, post-natal depression, fatigue or anxiety.
