Pregnancy Aches & Pains

During pregnancy, there are a number of changes for your body to cope with, not just physical changes, but chemical and emotional changes too. The physical strain of carrying an extra 20lb/10kg made up of water, placenta and, of course, baby, can affect an expectant mother’s organs, joints, soft tissues and ligaments.

Naturally, to accommodate these changes, women develop new ways to walk, sit and sleep, which will more often than not, cause discomfort or pain for the mother, particularly in the lower back, pelvis and hips.

As most drugs are not advised during pregnancy, osteopathy is the perfect option, offering a natural, gentle option to help your body accommodate the changes taking place.

Advice on breathing techniques, stretches and exercises you can do, which will help to maintain your health and wellbeing throughout your pregnancy.

Help prepare your body for a more trouble-free childbirth, by improving flexibility in the pelvis and abdomen.

Pregnancy is full of aches, pains, fatigue and changes in the way your body moves. Having someone support you through your pregnancy and postnatally can help you take control of your body and gain or maintain the strength you’ll need to rock pregnancy and motherhood.

My name is Danielle Pain and I have been looking after pregnant and postnatal patients for over 10 years.

I am clinically trained in osteopathic medicine and specialise in functional training. I can help you keep training through your pregnancy, help you with aches and pains, and all from the comfort of your own home so that childcare for siblings doesn’t have to stop you from taking care of yourself.

I meet many pregnant ladies whose GP has told them that pregnancy pains are inevitable, to be accepted as part of the process and that they will just have to tolerate them for the remainder of their pregnancy, and even beyond!

This is not true!

In most cases, these pregnancy pains can be relieved with 1 or 2 appointments – just like this lovely patient, Natasha, who had been debilitated by nerve pain for two weeks at the end of her second trimester. One session later and her pain was gone for the remainder of her pregnancy.

Testimonials from previous patients.

Thanks so much for helping with my sciatic nerve pain - feeling like a new woman already!

At 22 weeks pregnant I had mild pelvic girdle pain. I went to The Pain Clinic in the hopes of finding a solution. Danielle gave a thorough treatment and taught me how to tape my abdomen. I slept well for the first time in ages! I am very grateful! Thank you, Danielle!
