Craniosacral Therapy (Cranial Osteopathy) and the birthing process

Many babies experience difficulties through the use of Ventouse extraction, forceps or Caesarean deliveries. Every type of birth has its own compressive patterns on a baby’s body, especially its head, and Craniosacral therapy performed by an osteopath, can go a long way to easing these patterns through the therapist’s light touch and receptive listening.

Common new-born’s problems like colic, torticollis, digestive issues, may be due to compression arising from birth trauma.

Craniosacral therapy looks at the compressive forces experienced during birth as a result of the passage through the pelvis and the tight fit in the birth canal can cause imbalance in a baby’s system, even in natural and apparently problem-free births.

For a cranial osteopath, treating young babies and their mothers is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding experiences. Babies (especially new-borns) tend to respond very quickly and effectively to treatment, especially for conditions like reflux, colic and sleeplessness.

Just as a seed can be nurtured with the smallest amount of physical guidance to grow into a healthy plant, so a baby, by the gentlest of encouragement, can be helped to release the stresses and trauma of the birth process and so avoid possible physical and psychological trauma later in life.

Craniosacral therapy (Cranial Osteopathy)can also be extremely helpful for mothers during pregnancy, labour and after the birth as the body readjusts. It is so gentle that it is suitable for all ages and also in fragile or acutely painful conditions.

How can cranial osteopathy help with breastfeeding problems?

cranial osteopathy and breastfeeding problems Breastfeeding is a vital aspect of early life development and offers numerous benefits for both infants and mothers. However, some infants experience breastfeeding difficulties, which can lead to frustration for both the baby and the mother. Cranial osteopathy can offer potential benefits in addressing breastfeeding difficulties in infants.

Cranial osteopathy addresses certain physical factors that hinder a baby’s ability to latch and suckle effectively thereby improving the breastfeeding experience

Birth can be a physically demanding process for both the mother and the baby. Cranial osteopathy alleviates the physical stresses and tensions in the baby’s cranial bones and tissues of the body, which may be a result of the birthing process. Reducing tension enhances the baby’s ability to latch onto the breast more comfortably.

Often the birthing process can effect the jaw mobility and can limit the amount the baby can open its mouth to latch onto the breast. Infants may have restrictions in jaw mobility, making it challenging for them to open their mouths wide enough to latch properly. Cranial osteopathy’s gentle techniques address such restrictions, potentially allowing the baby to achieve a deeper latch and more effective breastfeeding.

Cranial osteopathy influences the mobility and function of the tongue, which is crucial for successful breastfeeding. By addressing any restrictions or imbalances in the oral structures, the baby has better control over their tongue movements, facilitating the suckling process.

.

Neck mobility is crucial for a good breastfeeding experience. In most positions during breastfeeding the baby needs full rotation of the neck, to both sides, in order for the mouth to be in the optimal position for breastfeeding. Cranial osteopathy, using gentle techniques can release the babies neck removing any restrictions as a result of the birthing process, and achieve a full range of neck motion.

A relaxed baby may be more receptive to breastfeeding, promoting a positive breastfeeding experience for both the infant and the mother.
