Let’s face it. Pregnancy can be a pain. It can hurt your back, your hips, your ribs, your hands, and most other places as well. If pregnancy or post-natal pain is affecting your quality of life, it’s probably a good idea to check in with the team at Focus Osteopathy today.

Pregnancy pain can be alarming

It’s normal to worry during pregnancy, especially the first time around. Aside from the many questions that you may have around your baby’s wellbeing, it’s also likely that you’re worrying about your own health. In fact, you’ve probably asked yourself some of the following questions:

  • How will my body recover from birth or a C-section?
  • Is what I am feeling normal?
  • How can I stay happy and strong through pregnancy?
  • Is it safe to have osteopathic treatment during pregnancy?
  • How will I take care of a new baby if I’m in pain?

The good news is that osteopathy can help pregnant women with back pain and other pregnancy-related musculoskeletal pains.

Sleep deprivation doesn’t help

If you’re experiencing pain either during your pregnancy or after birth, you’re probably not sleeping very well either.


In the late stages of pregnancy, your baby’s movements and positioning will probably make you uncomfortable for most of the night. After bub is born, you will probably be waking up at lot as you sort out your baby’s new routines around feeding and sleeping.


All of this can take its toll. Your pain can feel worse when you are sleep deprived, and it’s not uncommon for women to feel exhausted and miserable during this time.

It doesn’t have to be this way

While there are no quick-fixes to musculoskeletal pain related to pregnancy, you can recover faster by understanding what is causing your pain and starting a recovery plan.
