Pregnancy is a time of many changes to a woman’s body, her emotions, physical and mental stamina. You deserve and need time and support for yourself. Pregnancy craniosacral sessions are very nurturing and help create that deep sense of well-being.
Bodywork increases circulation and will bring much needed nutrients to your cells which helps balance hormones as they change with each trimester allowing you to keep feeling at your best throughout your whole pregnancy.
Some specific symptoms that craniosacral therapy is going to help you with as your pregnancy progresses.
Optimal Fetal Positioning and Birth Preparation
CranioSacral Therapy can be an integral part of preparing for labor. As the space inside the uterus becomes fuller as baby grows, most babies will then find a good comfortable position. Usually they are positioned head down. This is termed OA or Occiput (back of head) Anterior. Some babies might present as OP (posterior) or OT (transverse) and not be able to find the best fit possibly due to the tightness of Mom’s tissues. Craniosacral therapy can release restrictions in the muscles, connective tissue and ligaments so your body can do what it needs to do to help baby get in the optimal position for a vaginal birth.
Ideally, regularly scheduled appointments throughout your pregnancy can keep tension minimal.
Postpartum and CranioSacral Therapy
Congratulations, now you have your baby! It is just as important and needed for you to care for yourself after you give birth. CranioSacral Therapy at this stage can help you physically, emotionally and mentally recover from the demands of giving birth. Bodywork can give you some time to nurture yourself, get some needed rejuvenation and rest.
Teresa was wonderful during my pregnancy, she put me at ease about the changes my body was going through. I always felt so relaxed after each session. Barb H., Portland
As I got farther along in my pregnancy, my low back was so uncomfortable. Each time I went to see Teresa I felt so much better. It took my stress away and I could enjoy my pregnancy so much more. Kellie K, Lake Oswego
I was already a client of Teresa’s before I got pregnant, so it was just natural to continue to see her throughout my pregnancy. I always felt comforted by her and caring manor. Sadie W. , Beaverton
I was 38 weeks and baby was transverse, I had an external version without change. I saw Teresa on a Monday and baby turned and was born vaginally on Thursday. Stella
