Sam and Jennie are registered osteopaths with a wealth of experience in helping new mums adjust to the physical challenges of pregnancy, birth and caring for a baby; and in helping babies recover from the mechanical stresses of birth.
For expectant or new mums, we can relieve:

For baby we can treat:

We apply safe, gentle, hands-on procedures that relieve discomfort, stimulate quicker recovery and promote better mobility.
At Charles Street Clinic we have an excellent multi-disciplinary team offering safe, natural, effective treatments for pre-conception, throughout pregnancy, childbirth and beyond from experienced healthcare practitioners.
Having suffered with pelvic girdle pain (or SPD) from the first trimester of my 4th pregnancy, by 24 weeks I was almost completely housebound and crippled with pain. I had tried physiotherapy to no avail and was on crutches - even contemplating using a wheelchair. I had seen a consultant and been told that all they could do to get me through the pregnancy was to induce labour early and put me on bedrest and strong painkillers.
I decided to book an appointment with Sam in the hope that she may have been able to prevent the symptoms from deteriorating any further. Little did I know then that after several regular treatments (not every week) by 36 weeks I would be almost completely pain free most days, sleeping well at night, free from crutches and limping and planning a home birth with no talk of induction!
Sam's treatment has actually made the latter part of my pregnancy enjoyable and quite honestly she has given me my life back. My midwives and consultants have all been amazed by the improvement. If you have been suffering from SPD/PGP, please DO NOT HESITATE to visit Sam.
