Ostepathy… What is it? Aside from your primary health care provider (think midwife, OB, family doctor), there are many other health practitioners that can be extremely helpful during pregnancy and in the post partum period. This guest blog post (written by Ottawa Osteopath and Healthy Mumma, Shauna Ironside) highlights what the practice of osteopathy is and how it can help during and after pregnancy.

It's convenient, cost effective and most importantly, get's you out of the house for some fresh air. Power walking with your stroller creates resistance and increases the intensity of a regular walk.
