Osteopathy during pregnancy

A new person is growing and preparing! The pregnant woman gives HIM everything he needs: food, protection, love, time and space to grow.


This goes hand in hand with major changes in women. All body systems (cardiovascular system, digestive system, musculoskeletal system, respiratory system, renal system) must adapt and adapt to pregnancy and childbirth. These organs now work for “two”, although they have less and less time as the pregnancy progresses. 

The osteopathic treatment helps the expectant mother to experience the pregnancy as pleasantly as possible and helps to ensure that the child is well supplied with nutrients and has enough space to grow. 

In the second trimester of pregnancy, the osteopath compensates for the expectant mother's changed statics and keeps the diaphragm, uterus and pelvic ring mobile.

At the end of the pregnancy, the focus is on decongesting and mobilizing techniques for the spine and pelvic ring, as well as the mobility of the baby in the uterus and achieving the desired skull position with the child centered.

All techniques used are specially adapted and very gentle. Through cranio-sacral techniques it is possible to balance the mental well-being of the expectant mother. 

Since medication should generally be avoided during pregnancy, osteopathic treatment with its gentle techniques is a good alternative.
