Osteopathy for Pre & Post Natal


Osteopathy for Pregnancy

In addition to addressing your pregnancy-related pain, our exceptionally trained osteopaths will help prepare you and your pelvic floor for birth. 

During pregnancy your body will undergo significant changes in a relatively short period of time to support your growing baby. If your body adapts well to these changes, you may experience minimal discomfort. However, for many women the rapid postural changes can put strain on their spine, neck, shoulder, hips and pelvic floor, causing pain and discomfort.


How can osteopathy help during pregnancy?

At the Osteopathic Pelvic Hub, our osteopaths will help to support you through all stages of pregnancy. We use a variety of techniques to identify and address mobility concerns and stress in ligaments, tendons and muscles to allow your body to adapt to the changes of pregnancy. 

Previous injuries or mobility concerns can limit your body’s ability to adapt throughout pregnancy, this can predispose you to experiencing aches and pains. In addition to addressing the changes of pregnancy on your body, treatment can also focus on addressing chronic strains present from past injuries and trauma.


Addressing these concerns early can help to prevent reoccurance through later stages of pregnancy and allow your body more space to adapt as you move through your pregnancy.

Our osteopaths have experience helping with the following conditions during pregnancy: 

  • Pelvic girdle pain

  • Public symphysis pain

  • Upper back and shoulder pain

  • Lower back pain

  • Sacroiliac joint pain

  • Rib pain

  • Sciatica 

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Headaches

Our Osteopaths are also highly trained in pelvic health for pregnancy. We are passionate about assessing and treating the pelvic floor as part of pregnancy, birth preparation and for post-natal checkups.

Our Osteopaths work very closely with our Exercise Physiologist who is extensively trained in pregnancy.  Exercise Physiology works with you to keep you strong throughout your pregnancy and prepare you for your labor and life with a baby!


Osteopathy for Postnatal

The Osteopathic Pelvic Hub is the best postnatal Osteopathic clinic near you in Melbourne. We focus on both your post-birth related pain and preventing long-term implications that can result from imbalances and strain in your body after going through pregnancy and giving birth.

Our osteopaths are highly trained in the areas of postnatal care and post-birth related pain. 


How can osteo help post-labour?

Labour is a physically demanding process on a mother’s body and can place more stress and strain on the body. As the ligaments in your pelvis are very relaxed during birth, the position of the pelvis and sacrum is easily altered during the labour and birth process.


This can have short and long-term implications; both creating pain and discomfort in your pelvis and lower back, and potentially leading to implications for the rest of your body as it compensates for the imbalance of your pelvis and sacrum.

At the Osteopathic Pelvic Hub in Hampton, our osteopaths are experienced helping new mums with postpartum pain, commonly: 

  • Lower back and pelvis pain

  • Mid back pain (commonly experienced during and after breastfeeding)

  • Neck pain and headaches 

  • Pelvic girdle pain

  • Pubic symphysis pain

  • Wrist pain

  • De quervain's tenosynovitis

Treatment after birth

Osteopathic treatment after birth can help address any strains present with the goal of both relieving present pain and discomfort and preventing long-term pregnancy and birth related issues. 

For women who experienced a caesarean birth, episiotomy or perineal trauma, our osteopaths are highly skilled in helping with scar treatment and desensitisation.


We have experienced that over time, these scars can have lasting impacts on the musculoskeletal system and can lead to pain and dysfunction in the surrounding muscles and joint


Our Osteopaths are highly trained in pelvic health for post-natal. We are passionate about assessing and treating the pelvic floor for your post-natal checkup.
