Being pregnant can be exciting, yet at the same time overwhelming, due to all the physical, hormonal and emotional changes. We would like to accompany and support you, as a future mother, and your growing baby before, during and after your pregnancy.

The aim of pregnancy osteopathy is to treat you and your unborn child in a gentle and caring way using holistic osteopathic principles and techniques in order to relieve tension, functional disorders, restricted mobility and dysfunctions within the parietal, visceral and craniosacral systems and to improve and support your health. The free mobility of your baby in the womb is also the focus of osteopathic therapy in order to enable their best possible development. Due to it's harmonising, balancing and holistic effects, osteopathy during pregnancy can lead to relaxation and promote a positive birth experience.

In the first trimester, the focus is on optimal care of the lower pelvis in order to support the growth of the embryo and its organ development. 

The focus in the second trimester is to support you as a mother through all of the adjustments of pregnancy.

In the third trimester, pregnancy osteopathy - together with your midwife and gynaecologist - focuses on the best possible preparation for the birth.

The special pregnancy tables in our practice enable a holistic examination and osteopathic treatment of the pregnant mother in order to alleviate and support the pregnancy-related symptoms. The elastic material of these treatment tables ensures that you can also lie on your stomach at the end of your pregnancy.

After childbirth and postpartum, osteopathy can be an ideal supplement to promote pelvic floor stability and to regain it's strength. You and your baby will be in good hands, because our therapists are kept up-to-date by attending regular further-training courses and by working closely with our network of midwives.
