Osteopathy for babies in Sheffield

Helping your baby to feel better

We can help you to make sense of why your baby is uncomfortable so that you can get on with enjoying life as a family

As parents, what we want most for our babies is for them to feel happy, safe and loved. If they’re experiencing discomfort, we just want them to feel better.

Baby osteopath

Osteopathy gently releases tension in the body, so that your baby can feel more comfortable. It’s about treating the whole person rather than just the condition, so we’ll look for the underlying issues and identify exactly what’s causing the trouble.

Our Happy Baby Check is designed to bring comfort to your little one, and reassurance to you as a parent.

Paediatric osteopath

Osteopathy can help to relieve the symptoms of a wide range of common childhood conditions.

Your first appointment starts with a ‘listening session’, so that we can really get to know about your situation and what you’re dealing with. As well as hearing about the problem that you’ve come in with, we’ll want to know about other factors that help to build up the picture of your baby’s life so far, including how your pregnancy went and what their birth was like, as well as any illnesses or anything else which has been happening since then.

Once we have all of this information we’ll ask you to undress baby down to their nappy, so we can check their body for tension or tension patterns, and we’ll talk you through anything that shows up.
Osteopaths are trained to screen for medical conditions and we’ll tell you if we think you need to see another health professional such as your doctor or midwife. If we believe that your baby would benefit from osteopathic treatment, we’ll let you know what we think will make a difference.

Babies’ skeletons are softer than adults, and we’ll use very gentle techniques including cranial osteopathy when treating your baby – typically there is less pressure or movement than you’d use whilst changing a nappy, or getting them dressed or undressed.
Our aim is to have them feeling better again as soon as possible, so that they can be comfortable, calm and relaxed, and you can get on with enjoying family life together.
