Pain & Pregnancy

Pregnancy can be challenging for a mother’s body before, during and after delivery of her baby. Common presentations include pelvic girdle pain, pelvic neuralgias, neck, rib and low back pain. Some complaints can present many years later, after a difficult delivery, such as pudendal neuralgia.

Elizabeth Howard is one of Australia’s leading Osteopaths with experience in treating the pelvis. In this course, you will learn how to easily identify the most common presentations and how you can more effectively help women during pregnancy, prepare for labour and recover efficiently from delivery or caesarean section. The course will discuss breastfeeding ergonomics and the prevention of future delivery-related complaints.

Liz will discuss problems related to pelvic mesh products and how these have been managed at the Women’s Health & Research Institute of Australia with Prof Thierry Vancaillie.

Treatment protocols and techniques demonstrated are based on the latest clinical guidelines for managing pelvic girdle and peripheral neuropathic pain, and the prevention of post-partum complications. You will learn useful self-management tips that women can include in their birth plan and beyond
