Pregnancy is a time of incredible change within a woman’s body. Her posture, spinal curves and centre of gravity alter to accommodate the growing foetus and the extra 20 lb plus of extra weight.
Almost any mechanical and many physiological problems can be alleviated by Classical Osteopathy. It may be of particular value in instances where traditional medicine is not able to provide a cure.

SPD is a dysfunction that is associated with pelvic girdle pain and the names are often used interchangeably. It is thought to affect up to one in four pregnant women to varying degrees, with 7% of sufferers continuing to experience serious symptoms postpartum. Although the condition was recognised by Hippocrates, incidences of SPD appear to have increased in recent years; it in unclear whether this is because the average maternal age is increasing, or because the condition is being diagnosed more frequently.
