Our Paediatric Osteopaths are very experienced in dealing with babies and children of all ages and pre- and post-natal issues. We frequently work together with GP’s, health visitors, midwives and doulas to get the right course of treatment for you and your family.
For any new parents with baby concerns our Osteopaths are happy to have phone consultations to help you understand how assessments and treatment may work.
Pain is very common in pregnancy but this does not mean it is normal or needs putting up with. Pain is usually an indicator that some part of the body is not compensating to pregnancy as it should. Back pain, indigestion, pubic symphsis dysfunction, pelvic girdle pain and rib pain are just some of the symptoms that pregnant women are frequently told they have to just ‘put up with’. Osteopaths are trained to assess and treat mechanical or functional issues that often lead to these problems.
We treat women throughout pregnancy and can provide gentle exercises or stretches to keep aches and pains at bay and help towards a healthy, happy pregnancy.
Our Acupuncturist offers treatments to babies suffering from colic, broken sleep, restlessness, diarrhoea/constipation, vomiting / nausea, abdominal pain, crying at night. For older children, appointments are available for bedwetting, poor appetite, excessive eating, learning difficulties, delayed development, diarrhoea / constipation, urination infection, ear infection, anxiety / depression, ADHD / ASD, self-harm, eating disorders, fear, phobias, feeling lonely, mood swings and difficulty in making friends.
Emotional discomfort can also be common in pregnancy and in the post-partum period. Whilst pregnant bodies change so do pregnant minds and the transition into parenthood can be a little destabilising. Our counsellor, Annabelle, is experienced in supporting mothers with difficulties during the perinatal period, offering warm and empathic support. New mums are welcome to bring their babies to sessions if that is what feels most comfortable.
