Pain During Pregnancy


Discovering that you are going to have a baby is usually one of the most exciting things that can happen to you. The euphoria of the news is, however, quickly overtaken for many women by the stark reality of the many medical problems that they may encounter during the nine-month journey. From the time you discover that you are pregnant to the time you deliver, you may encounter several forms of discomfort and/or pain. Taking medicine during pregnancy is generally complicated and should generally be avoided. But don’t despair; there are natural remedies and procedures to make you feel more comfortable.

At the beginning of your pregnancy, you may have nausea, often referred to as morning sickness. This is caused by your body adjusting to the massive changes that are occurring. Normally this nausea does not last very long, and many women simply tolerate it. But if your situation is more severe, there are some things that we can do to help. Things like acupressure can certainly help, but you need an experienced practitioner to prescribe the procedure.

Diet can also be a huge help in the fight against morning sickness. Again, as with other topics here, your dietary requirements will differ from individual to individual. So rather than follow a diet in a book, it is far better for you to work with us to develop a specific diet for you, based upon your individual set of circumstances.

The next phase, which will become progressively worse, will likely be back pain. As the weight of the baby increases, your back is trying to compensate for the strain of naturally leaning forward. This can cause pain. This can be helped by professional manipulation and massage. Then, as delivery looms on the immediate horizon, the real fun begins. Labor pains are probably the most extreme form of pain that you will ever encounter. The pain cannot be 100% reduced, but it can be easily reduced by a mixture of patterned breathing, relaxation techniques and even possible hypnosis. We can offer you a detailed program to help you deal with each phase of your pregnancy and, hopefully, make the experience more pleasurable.
