Can anyone recommend an Osteopath for SPD in pregnancy?

I've just been to the GP and have the tell tale signs. I've been referred to Kings for Physiotherapy. But wondered if anyone had been to and could recommend an Osteopath that is trained to help with SPD.

Also eager to hear any other advise on how I can get to the end of this pregnancy as comfortably as possible. I'm only 22 weeks and whilst it's currently bearable I am aware it can get quite bad and I'd really like to do all I can to avoid that.

Thanks for reading. Adelle x

Hi Adelle,

Two options! The Osteopathic Centre for Children in Wandsworth - all trained osteo's doing a specialist course in mums and babies with consultants watching over. It's a charity and therefore much more affordable. They treated me throughout both pregnancies and now treat my girls.

Option two is Dr Stephen Sandler at The Chingford Osteopathy Practice. He teaches obstetric osteopathy all over the world so most osteo's who work with pregnant women used his textbook! It's a schlep to get there but I do it with two under two and still find it worth while!

Good luck!

Sympathies.

I'd add in Quentin Shaw in Tunbridge Wells. Another schlep but he's an acknowledged expert in PGP and has got women out of wheelchairs.

Also go back to your GP and ask to be referred to St Thomas' women's physios. The guys at Kings are lovely but not at all specialists, and won't do anything hands on. The Tommy's lot will do massage, acupuncture, hydrotherapy and more, and do very thorough assessments. A different experience altogether.

Wow thank you all for your kind and helpful responses. Very helpful. I will indeed go back to the GP and ask to be referred to St Thomas's instead.

Hi there, I went to see Russell at the Dulwich Physio on Crystal Palace Road. I went every week for the last 12 weeks of my pregnancy and it was the only thing that kept me moving. He was amazing and deals with loads of pregnant women with SPD so is well use to it. I have work Health Insurance so I only paid 4 a visit but I think the full cost was about 45 for an hour. It was so worth it.
I got a referral from my GP but went private, my midwife told me I was lucky because at Kings they just give you a leaflet and tell you what to do. A leaflet wouldnt have done me any good, I needed an actual massage. A friend has this at the moment too and her hospital also just gave her info when she went for the appointment. If you can afford it I would totally get proper physio for it. Russell also showed me things to do at home to help ease it.

I feel your pain... hopefully you get some relief soon

Agree Russell on Crystal Palace Road is good. I also heard great things about Quentin Shaw.
I went to Kings physio which was run as a group session, was frustratingly pointless - they didn't do anything or tell us anything that wasn't available on the Pelvic Girdle Partnership website. Having said that, their point that you need to follow the advice given and do the exercises daily was good - and it really does make a difference.
Glad to hear St thomas is better for physio as I'm with them this time

I had SPD in my first pregnancy and was "clicked back" in one session by osteopath John Prescott at the Montserrat Clinic in Putney (020 8780 2727). He told me that one session is absolutely sufficient unless it goes again.

I didn't actually have treatment while pregnant but did just after with Simon from the Vale Practice on grove vale. He could tell before I'd said a thing that I had been pregnant, overdue and had a fast birth because he was so used to working on pregnant and post pregnancy women. He also diagnosed my severe gallstones long before 3 people at DMC and 2 A&E consultants at Kings did anything about it (when it became life threatening!).

Hey everyone. I got pregnant, I am on the 11 week. Could you please give me some tips about pregnancy ? It's my first time, and I am really nervous and afraid.

I am trying my best to give birth to a healthy child, but I don't have enough experience in that domain. Also, I wanted to know is airborne safe to take while pregnant ? I have read that it can be very dangerous, and I am a little bit confused. What should I do ?

Hey Kalvinbrown, congratulations on your pregnancy. This thread is particularly about Osteopathy in pregnancy, if you're looking for other information then it's best if you start a separate thread with your own question - it helps to avoid confusion.

To answer your question though, NO Airborne is NOT SAFE to take in pregnancy as the amount of vitamin C & A and E is way too high and this can cause problems with the baby's growth and development in the womb.

Louisa Henderson at The Goose Green Clinic.

Another vote for Louisa at Goose Green. Her techniques felt gentle yet I felt like I was walking on air after my sessions in spite of being very heavily pregnant
