At The Lansdown Clinic we offer a range of treatments for pregnant and post-natal mothers and infants and children.




Chiropractic care is safe for both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy. In the first trimester, the baby is protected by the mothers’ bony pelvis and within the uterus and amniotic fluid. Later the growing belly is supported by the mother’s spine, muscles and ligaments. These should be balanced and in alignment in order for the mother to be comfortable.

Chiropractors will carefully position the mother with pregnancy pillows or use table variations to allow for the bump. Consideration for the mother’s relaxed ligaments is taken into account and specific adapted techniques are employed as the pregnancy advances. Chiropractic adjustments can be used throughout pregnancy to help the pelvic and postural muscles from over-working.


Pregnancy and Baby Massage

Both baby and pregnancy massage will be undertaken by our qualified therapist Lynne Gardiner who is trained in Baby Massage and Massage for Pregnancy & Childbirth.

Lynne is a multi-disciplined Therapist qualified to internationally recognised VTCT Level 4.

In addition to offering massage to pregnant mothers and babies, Lynne also runs an Instructional Baby Massage Course, teaching parents how to massage their babies/toddlers at home. Baby massage can be very relaxing and fun for both parent and baby, and Lynne will always ensure that your experience is safe and enjoyable.

Lynne has been a practicing therapist in the industry for many years and her aim is always to provide a service to every patient which is second to none. Her friendly manner, professionalism, approachability and dedication is evident in everything she does and this will enable you to feel totally at ease throughout your treatment.


Prenatal & Postpartum Chiropractic

We are privileged to treat several pregnant mums-to-here at The Lansdown Clinic. We have had pregnant women from Stroud, Cheltenham, Cirencester, Bristol and Gloucester to name a few.

Our practitioners have been trained as pregnancy chiropractors use a wide variety of techniques to help you deal with the stresses of pregnancy. Treatment is gentle and uses modified techniques, making it safe for both prenatal and postpartum care.

Chiropractors train full-time for five years where we learn medical diagnosis, radiography and radiology (apart from chiropractic skills), which means that we can diagnose your problem. We are primary care practitioners specialising in nerve, muscle and joint problems. Chiropractic care forms part of a multidisciplinary approach, care is always taken to refer out when necessary and provide feedback to all healthcare providers currently managing the patient.


Paediatric Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic can be equally beneficial for babies. Our chiropractors have completed extra training in paediatric care and are very experienced in treating children of all ages.

Gentle manipulation could help soothe and relax your baby. The treatment for babies and young children is modified using a slight pressure (sustained release) most commonly rather than the manipulative technique used on adults. Ensuring that the baby is relaxed can assist in decreasing stress to mom and the family.
