Osteopathy accompanies the process of motherhood: from the decision to the pregnancy test.

Osteopathy is not only a beneficial practice during pregnancy, but a discipline that will accompany you throughout the entire maternity process, from the moment of the idea.
In many old medicines they called the nine months before becoming pregnant the progesence (progessence).

Osteopathy supports women during this time of preparation, in the "before".
Thanks to precise techniques and a holistic view of the body, we accompany the body to a future pregnancy.
We work the organs to improve the flexibility of the entire digestive system, the mobility of the different diaphragms (yes, there is more than one!), we balance the autonomic nervous system, and most importantly we release all possible gynaecological tensions.

We work as a team with different professionals (physiotherapists, homeopaths, psychologists and naturopaths) to work the ground if we see it useful and if the mother-to-be wishes it.
Marina, with more than 15 years of experience, accompanies and continues to accompany many women in their search for pregnancy with patience and affection.

Osteopathy during pregnancy

Then during pregnancy, which is a period of great physical, emotional and spiritual changes, osteopathy continues to be of great help.

Through gentle and adapted techniques, it helps manage pain, improves posture and accompanies the tissues IN their changes. At the same time, it promotes overall wellbeing, facilitating a more comfortable and healthy pregnancy experience.

During pregnancy, osteopathy offers a unique way to connect with the body's process of growth and change. It improves the body's adaptation to these changes, reducing stress and increasing a sense of well-being.
This connection and body awareness is not only beneficial during pregnancy, but also prepares the mother for a more efficient and balanced recovery after childbirth.

We recommend coming once in each trimester so that we can keep an eye on these three stages with their challenges, changes and discoveries.

Osteopathy becomes an essential ally in the evolution of the body during this stage. Each stage of pregnancy needs its adjustments, and here the experience of the osteopath's hand works on the relevant areas.

Relieving the aches and pains of pregnancy

Through gentle and specific techniques, we work to mitigate common discomforts such as lower back pain and sciatica, thus improving comfort during these months.
In addition, we focus on preparing your body for childbirth, using methods that promote proper pelvic alignment and increased flexibility.

These practices not only contribute to a smoother birth, but also help to reduce anxiety and stress, ensuring a more serene and positive motherhood experience.
This practice not only improves physical well-being, but also strengthens the emotional bond.

Many people talk about the importance of pelvic alignment and although it is important, the body is seen as a whole. Even the thorax is fundamental for a healthy adaptation during the 9 months, as it actively participates in the quality of the management of contractions.

Questions about osteopathy during pregnancy

Yes, it is safe. Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive manual therapy suitable for pregnant women. Osteopaths are trained to treat pregnant women with specific techniques that are safe for both mother and baby. We avoid crunches and favour gentle osteopathy.

Osteopathy helps relieve back pain by adjusting postural imbalances and reducing muscle tension. It also works to improve mobility and alignment of the body, which is especially important as the body changes during pregnancy.

Yes, osteopathy can play an important role in preparation for childbirth. Through specific techniques, it aims to optimise the freedom of movement of the sacro-iliac joints, which can facilitate a smoother and potentially less painful birth.

The frequency of visits varies according to individual needs. Generally, it is recommended to start with regular sessions and then adjust according to how the patient feels and the evolution of her pregnancy.
