A baby will turn towards the end of pregnancy into a head down position in preparation for birth. This is knowing as LOA or left occiput anterior and is the best position for baby to in ahead of delivery.
It is baby’s job to turn and is something that naturally comes to them but sometimes tensions and restrictions in mum’s body, that arise as a consequence of modern living, can make it a challenge for baby to rotate.
Osteopaths DO NOT turn babies, this is something only midwives and obstetricians are allowed to do. However, as an osteopath I can assess and treat areas of tension and restriction in your body, supporting your own physiology to allow baby to turn on their own without need for intervention.
If you would like more information on pregnancy and birth preparation, please feel free to get in touch with me today.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
