Mum & Baby

At the Waldegrave Clinic you will find specific pre and post natal care for Mum & Baby that can help you enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy and help settle an unsettled baby.

When pregnancy is uncomfortable

Pregnancy has a big impact on your body. There are many changes that take place which naturally lead to subtle alterations in the way you hold and move your body.

The curve in your back may increase as your baby grows which can lead to back pain. Increased movement in the joints of the pelvis as your body prepares for labour can lead to pain and discomfort around the pelvic girdle.

This is the point when you may start to consider seeing a chiropractor to help with those aches, pains and feelings of discomfort.

Gentle treatment may help to improve postural, spinal and pelvic alignment to aid your comfort and relaxation.

Settling an unsettled baby

Crying is a normal for a baby, but when your baby cries excessively and refuses to sleep – what do you do next?

Excessive crying or signs of discomfort when feeding, can be related to the tension, discomfort or pain that a baby feels somewhere in their body.

This may be attributed to uncomfortable positioning in the womb or trauma during the birth process – especially if interventions such as forceps were necessary.

Very gentle chiropractic techniques for babies will often focus on the spine and the bones of the cranium. This may help to release tension and allow nerve flow to be restored.
