Comfort for Mother and Baby
We look to the comfort of the mother for the comfort of the baby. The baby will take the position that is most comfortable for him/herself at the time using the space available.
Looking anatomically to the ribs and thoracic diaphragm will relieve/solve a lot of heart burn and nausea.
We look to the position of the uterus and cervix - a strong indication is where women are told (often during smear tests) that they may have an retroflexed/retroverted or anteroflexed/anteroverted uterus and cervix. This can influence the mother and baby’s birthing experience (i.e baby’s head pushing on mothers pubic bone).
If the ligaments supporting the uterus are unbalanced and the uterus is pulling more one way, as the uterus expands and weight increases the mother will experience pelvic discomfort and/or round ligament discomfort.
We address the mobility and motility of the pelvis to optimise the birthing process. Ideally we would have free moving (flexion and extension, internal/external rotation) of both illia and the sacrum and coccyx so they are able to move freely as the baby descends during labour.
A balanced pelvis can reduce the chances of PND when we consider its direct link and effects on the sphenoid - which houses the hypothalamus and pituitary - master glands of the endocrine.
We look to all major glands of the endocrine system to optimise the orchestra of hormones needed before / during / after birth.
Spiritually / energetically - we can work with the mother and baby where maybe the mother does not feel a connection to her baby, maybe a shock pregnancy or traumatic birth.
We can unwind the birthing events for both mother and baby. Setting you both up for optimum comfort and health going forward. Minimising the risk of reflux and colic for the baby.
I can help with c-section scars, pain in intercourse, pelvic rebalance where there has been episiotomy/tearing/stitching, prolapse, incontinence, diastasis recti, breast feeding, latch (esp if forceps or ventouse birth), mastitis - the list goes on…..
Also - Do you know a couple struggling to get pregnant. Quite often, secondary infertility can be overcome when you work with women in the ways mentioned above and also with the men (think congestive pelvis, poor flow) to optimise chances of conception.
