Pregnancy is a very special time for an expectant mother. During pregnancy, your body undergoes major changes and in order to adapt to these, a hormone called Relaxin is released. This hormone allows the ligaments throughout your body to soften and stretch, helping your body adapt as your baby grows inside you. Some women have difficulty adapting to these changes, causing undue strain on the spine, neck and shoulders.
During pregnancy, significant attention is given to assisting the body to accommodate to changes occurring under the increasing load of carrying your baby. At SSG, our Osteopaths and Massage Therapists work with the joints and soft tissues of the body to facilitate healing, release tension, improve functionality and release stress.
