    Supporting you when you need it most.


Pregnancy can be a real pain in the back

…and the hips, and shoulders..

Falling pregnant is one of life’s greatest celebrations.
It’s truly a blessing to be pregnant and to grow life!
Unfortunately the experience isn’t always smooth sailing for all.

Aside from the myriad of issues one can experience, when it comes to you and your body you have control.

Many women experience aches and pains throughout their pregnancy.

An average weight gain during a pregnancy is from 8 -15kgs.
The uterus itself grows by 1000%!

As the trimesters progress and the baby grows, your center of gravity shifts. Organs get pushed around to make space, ligaments stretch joints get lax.

It’s all part of the journey, and it doesn’t have to be a painful one!

Your Changing Body

and your changing postural needs.

As your pregnancy progresses you’re body goes through many changes. One of the most obvious is just how much your posture changes.

1. Forward tilting of the neck and extension of your head.
This leads to an increase in shoulder tension and headaches. Additionally you can develop stiff neck tension, TMJ tension and an onset of carpal tunnel.
 
2. Tension in your upper back.
As the baby grows your ribs will need to expand a little to allow room for growth. This in turn often results in upper back tension, sore ribs difficulty breathing
 
3. Accentuated curve in your low back.
The pull of your abdomen forward is going to put a lot of stress through your lumbar spine. Studies indicate that 70% of women during pregnancy will experience low back pain.

4. Forward tilt of your pelvis.
Often shows up with an accentuated curve in your low back. The forward tilt of the pelvis can lead to sciatic pain, pubic symphysis dysfunction and exacerbated tension in your legs.

5. Hyperextension of your legs
This puts additional strain through your legs often leading to an increase in calf cramps as well as tightness and pain in the feet.
