How can we help

It’s true some people associate pregnancy with a beautiful glow.  However often in reality you may be faced with; morning sickness, reflux, fluid retention, headaches, varicose veins, insomnia, to name just a few! It’s no wonder some woman find this time very challenging. As the body is changing and carrying more weight, pelvic pain, hip pain and back pain are all common, especially if you had pre-existing back pain. This pain can make daily tasks difficult and sleep a nightmare.

With so much focus on the pregnancy and birth, it’s important to be supported during the post-natal period as well. Not only can you become depleted due to giving birth but your new mum lifestyle is full of challenges. Common problems include difficulties breastfeeding, mastitis, post-natal depression, relationship stress, insomnia and “Mummy Thumb”/De Quervain’s syndrome.

We understand how difficult a time this can be. Along with your GP, we can assist you with any issues that arise, offer practical advice emotional support during the different stages of pregnancy along with the stress of preparing for birth and beyond.
