You may have planned and hoped for a natural vaginal delivery but what happens if complications arise during birth? These complications during labour may result in your baby being delivered by:
- Caesarean-section (c-section).
- With the help of vacuum pump or suction (ventouse).
- With the help of forceps.
Interventions such as these, when necessary, often save lives.
The ideal birth situation is for a natural delivery. Nature has designed a baby’s skull to compress as it travels through the birth canal during a vaginal birth.
Babies born by c-section miss out on this vital compression (which helps balance the cranial bones) through the birth canal. Babies born with the use of forceps or vacuum often experience undue stress on the head and face and strain patterns can often develop in their bodies.
You may notice your baby has problems with:
- Acid Reflux
- Excess Crying
- Flat Spots or swollen area in the skull bones
- Uneven ear or eye position
- Prefers feeding on one of their sides
- Prefers lying on one of their sides
Craniosacral Therapy helps to eliminate or minimise these complications that arise.
