OSTEOPATHY FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN
An osteopathic check-up following the birth can help pin-point potential problems and helps to ease the dramatic transition from life inside the womb to the outside world
Babies can experience a lot of stress and anxiety during even a normal pregnancy and birth process and this can lead to various feeding, sleeping and temperament problems. These problems can be made much worse during a long labour, breech birth, ventouse/forceps delivery or caesarean section. In the young baby this may lead to feeding and behavioural problems, difficulty settling and sleeping through the night or irritability.
Osteopathic techniques are suitable for children at all stages of development and we will assess your child to see what might help. Cranial Osteopathy is used along with gentle massage to relieve the stress of a difficult birth.
