Women’s health postnatal issues, whether internal or external, have to be taken care seriously. Mariana Cerqueira from GoodtoKnow has been talking about how Kate Middleton’s and mums posture in general can affect their back with long term problems, quoting Mummy’s Physio’s advises from our last interview in The Sun’s Online Magazine about chronic back & shoulder conditions that can happen if nothing is prevented on time.
Physically one of the most challenging moments in life, childbirth happens to be ‘traumatic’ for 1 every 3 women. Whether delivery was difficult (even the slightest) and/or c-section was necessary, it is common to end up with what we call birth traumas. Mothers and babies can experience physical and psychological consequences from childbirth, from big or small injuries to postnatal Baby Blues or even depression.
This is why it is important to question yourself on whether your delivery has been traumatic and get help from osteopathy to relieve from physical and emotional traumas.
Childbirth is undeniably one of the most overwhelming moments in a woman’s life and even if the delivery goes as well as you could possibly imagine, it is common to suffer from different consequences, physical or psychological.
In the year following delivery, 1 woman out of 10 will experience what we call PND (postnatal depression) or Baby Blues. As a psychological effect of childbirth, the signs of postnatal depression can be subtle and not as easy to recognise as we imagine.
Here’s a little guide to help you spot the signs of postpartum depression and how you can benefit from osteopathy.
