Laura, an existing patient who had been coming on and off for treatment to her low back arrived both happy and worried. Happy because she had had confirmation that she was pregnant and worried about whether her low back would hold out. She wanted to come on a monthly basis to ensure that her low back was a fit as it could be through her pregnancy. With the exception of a three week period late on in her pregnancy her low back did hold out, with a little bit of help from her osteopath.
The changes that her spine and pelvis had to make to accommodate the growth of what was an eight pound baby were assisted by gentle osteopathic treatment.
