Many women experience back pain during pregnancy, it is a time of great change, not only to your life but also to the body. These musculo-skeletal changes are caused by changes in weight and posture as the baby or babies grow and also by hormonal changes preparing the body for child birth.

Osteopathy whilst pregnant can help alleviate some of the symptoms typically associated with pregnancy:
- Aches and pains (e.g. Back pain)
