CranioSacral Therapy for Conception, Pregnancy & Birthing

Craniosacral Therapy for Pregnancy and Babies

craniosacral for a babyCraniosacral Therapy can be used before conception, for both women and men to help clear structural or emotional restrictions that may be in the way of conception, and is supportive for those who may be experiencing difficult emotions due to infertility.

From conception a baby copes with much change and development. It is influenced by everything in its environment, especially the nutritional, physical and emotional wellbeing of its mother.

During pregnancy the increasing weight of the baby, as it develops in the womb, means that the mother’s pelvis and spine has to adapt and alter its position, this can cause discomfort to the mother, which may cause her anxiety. This anxiety causes stress and is probably felt by the baby. By having regular treatments throughout the pregnancy Craniosacral Therapy can ease many of the physical and emotional symptoms. Helping the mother and baby become more comfortable, relaxed and feeling positive towards the pregnancy and the birth. Craniosacral therapy can be used right up to the early stages of labour.

When labour is initiated contractions of the uterine muscle begin. As the contractions progress and become stronger they exert pressure on the baby, usually on its bottom and sacrum (dependent on its presentation). This pressure flows down the baby and pushes its head through the fully dilated cervix, into the birth canal and then the outside world. During this journey the baby also has to twist and turn in order to fit through the top and then the bottom of its mother’s pelvis.

After the birth

The whole birthing process can be a very beautiful experience and preparation is very beneficial. Sometimes though, things don’t go as planned and the physical and emotional stress that this can create may leave the mother and baby with the effects of birth trauma. Birth trauma can be divided into two main elements, the physical forces and the shock effects. The experience of the birth process may be with us for life. It can create a pattern that the therapist can ‘listen’ to, at any age, with a light touch. Both elements can and should be treated together.

Treatment for a baby

The most common reasons mothers and fathers bring babies for Craniosacral Therapy is that the baby is suffering from colic, sleeping troubles or digestive problems. These symptoms may be present due to birth trauma and many parents report improvements after just a few treatments. During a treatment the baby remains clothed and can be done while the baby is sleeping or feeding. Initial light contact is made at the feet and treatment is then baby led.
