Back pain during pregnancy is probably one of the most common issues. With the weight of the baby shifting the centre of gravity, no wonder your body ends up suffering from these changes.
Here are 8 ways to help relieve back pain during your pregnancy.
Postnatal rehabilitation is an important step in recovery after birth, pregnancy being one of the first causes of pelvic floor weakening. But the more you age and the more your muscles lose their tonus, including pelvic floor muscles. The arrival of menopause later in life brings hormonal and physical imbalance, which can worsen a pelvic floor already weak and lead to women’s health issues such as urinary incontinence, prolapse or sexual problems.
This is why pelvic floor and urinary rehabilitation will be useful not only after having a child, but also at all stage of a woman’s life.
The 9 months of pregnancy put women’s body through so many changes, whether it is physical or hormonal, which often lead to some kind of pain or discomfort that can be prevented or treated. As if it wasn’t enough, they also need to prepare themselves for delivery and rehabilitation after birth.
So how women should look after their body during pregnancy and think ahead about postnatal recovery?
Women’s health postnatal issues, whether internal or external, have to be taken care seriously.

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.
