  • Chiropractic care during pregnancy

    We see lots of pregnant ladies at Saffron Walden Chiropractic Clinic. Our goal is to help you to have an enjoyable, active and comfortable pregnancy and to help to prepare your body for the labour you want.

    Many women suffer symptoms such as back and neck pain, groin pain, and headaches arising from the neck during their pregnancy. This can change what is for many a joyful time into a miserable, uncomfortable experience to be endured. Pregnant ladies often think, or are told, that they have to put up with these symptoms because they are pregnant. This is often not the case. Our chiropractors specialise in restoring the function of joints and muscles which have stopped working well and which are giving symptoms such as pain and stiffness. The treatment is done by the practitioner’s hands and is very safe and effective for treating pregnant women.

    Our chiropractors:

    • Help to align your pelvis and re-establish the mobility of your joints.
    • Use massage and other techniques to relieve muscle tension.
    • Advise you on postural, exercise and nutritional considerations during your pregnancy.
    • Provide support and healthcare advice for the duration of your pregnancy and beyond.

    Our chiropractors are trained and proficient in Webster technique and how it may relate to breech presentation. icpa4kids.com

I saw Jo for pre-natal Chiropractic from around 30 weeks pregnant. My baby at this stage was back to back. I strongly believe that Jo’s advice and treatment was a major factor in my positive birth experience and would strongly recommend her to improve yours.

I refer to Ellinor as my ‘pain God’. I come out of treatment feeling 100 times better than when I went in. I recommend your practice to many of my pregnant friends. All of the receptionists are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them.

After receiving treatment from Jo in the late stages of my pregnancy I instantly felt better. My range of movement increased and my sleep much improved. Jo gave me the reassurance that my body and baby were in the best position in preparation for labour.

I first visited Jo due to a reoccurring back issue; I was 7 months pregnant. My back was so bad and I was so stressed, I went to Jo on a recommendation. I feel it is no understatement to say she changed the course of my pregnancy. The chiropractic sessions helped my back and align my pelvis and the emotional support and reassurance that she gave me really lifted me at the end of a tiring pregnancy. So when I became pregnant 3 years later, top of my list of things to do was to be under Jo's care to help prepare myself for labour. I trusted Jo implicitly and had great faith in her ability as a chiropractor; so much so I took both my babies to be assessed after birth and for their first year. Her guidance and support has been invaluable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and her practice. For reference I had 2 very straight forward home births with no pain relief and fast recovery. Knowing that physically my body was in good condition to deliver easily gave me extra confidence to deliver at home.

I had experienced back pain for several years prior to becoming pregnant. The chiropractic treatment I received at Saffron Walden Chiropractic Clinic in the latter stages of pregnancy made a huge improvement to my symptoms and I feel helped me cope with being heavily pregnant and to be more mobile. I would and do recommend treatment to others. Jo is absolutely wonderful working with babies and their parents, she is so understanding.

Jenny Carpenter.

I started going to Jo when I was 20 weeks pregnant with my first child. Jo made me feel very welcome and at ease and after just one treatment my aching neck and back felt much easier, but what surprised me most was how the treatment helped me to have the labour I wanted, with Jo’s help I felt very confident of my ability to cope.

Jo has helped me a great deal during my pregnancy. She has explained things clearly to me and always given me the time I needed to understand. I would highly recommend her to women like me who are struggling with pelvic and back pain during their pregnancy.
