Craniosacral therapy is therapeutic for mom and baby throughout all stages of pregnancy.   Connecting with your body and baby encourages bonding, understanding and overall physical wellbeing.  It is especially beneficial for women in later stages of pregnancy to increase mobility of the bony pelvis, abdominal organs, and the ligaments of the uterus. Babies who have more room to grow and move during gestation are less likely to develop conditions like torticollis (and the resultant positional plagiocephaly), hip dysplasia and other strain patterns. 

Connecting with your body and baby encourages bonding and overall physical wellbeing. CST can support: 

Increase mobility of the bony pelvis

Make more space for abdominal organs

Help position baby

Improve dialogue with baby

Back pain 


Anxiety/ Depression


The attention we receive during pregnancy is often withdrawn and transferred to the baby after the birth. It is critically important to continue nurturing parents when most of their energy is spent nurturing a new baby. It is beneficial for the whole family when a newly postpartum parent receives focused attention just for them. A postpartum treatment focuses on structural realignment of the spine and pelvis and rehabilitation of the muscles and other structures overworked or weakened during pregnancy. It facilitates healing, especially for people who have had cesarean births. I give my clients instruction on how best to help themselves recover strength and balance in their bodies.

Postpartum CST also addresses the new body discomforts associated with the carrying and care of a newborn infant. It includes instruction in the proper use of body mechanics for these new activities.

A person who has experienced a complicated birth may hold emotional and/or physical trauma and may grieve the loss of the birth experience they had planned for themselves. Postpartum CST helps the new parent process and integrate the birth experience in a way that is physically and emotionally healthy.

CST may help with:

Realignment of spine and pelvis

Rehabilitation of muscles

Cesarean recovery

Postpartum depression 

Anxiety/ overwhelm

Mother/child bonding
