How can Osteopathy help your baby?
Birth is one of the more stressful events of our lives. The baby is subjected to enormous forces, as the uterus pushes to expel the baby against the natural resistance of the birth canal. The baby has to turn and twist as it squeezes through the pelvic bone. The baby's head has the remarkable ability to absorb these stresses in a normal delivery. In order to reduce the size of the head, the soft bones overlap, bend and warp as the baby descends. Many babies are born with odd shaped heads as a result. In the first few days, the head can usually be seen to gradually lose the extreme moulded shape, as the baby suckles, cries and yawns. However, this unmoulding process is often incomplete, especially if the birth has been difficult. As a result, the baby may have to live with some very uncomfortable stresses within its head and body. Some babies cope extremely well with even quite severe retained moulding and compression, and are contended and happy. For others it is a different story, and they can display a variety of problems: crying, irritability, feeding difficulties, sickness, colic and wind or sleep disturbances.

Osteopaths have a highly developed sense of touch. They use this, combined with a detailed birth case history and structural examination to determine the extent and location of any areas of restriction (strain patterns) in the baby's body. They then use extremely gentle manual techniques to resolve these strains in order to relieve discomfort and improve the body's function. This will allow the different body systems - the nervous system, the immune system, the muscular system and the circulatory system - to work effectively and optimally. The treatment uses no drugs, and is non-invasive.
