Pregnancy - who can help me?
A question we get asked a lot in the clinic relating to pregnancy pain, is who do I see? Do I talk to my GP, do I speak to my midwife, or can an osteopath help me? For pressing medical complaints you should always seek help from your GP. Below is a short list of symptoms where you should talk to your GP ASAP:
Upper Right belly pain
Significant sudden weight gain over the last 1-2 days
Peeing significantly less or not at all
Severe sudden headaches
Severe vomiting or Severe nausea
Visual changes or disturbances
Baby not moving
With growing a baby comes a set of changes in your body that influences the way you move and function. This leads to common areas of pain including; lower back, hip, groin, a difficulty in breathing, having fluid retention in hands or feet. If you have any concerns about your pregnancy along the way, you should speak to your midwife/obstetrician. Osteopathically we can assist in alleviating some of those aches and pains, to make your pregnancy journey more comfortable for you and your baby. Feel free to give our osteopaths a call and have a chat with how we can help you and your needs. We can treat at any stage your pregnancy including post-partum with modified techniques/positions to assist you.
