How can birth
be traumatic ?

permanence ostéopatique de genève

Although birth is an integral part of the cycle of life, it can also be our first trauma. This can be extreme, producing obvious lesions. On the other side, a normal a prioribirth, i.e. without visible trauma, can exert on the child some important pressures thus causing problems.

The newborn is extremely resistant. He is able to withstand the pressures to which we are subjected when we descend through natural ways. These encourage us to take our first breath that literally starts the machine mobilizing, globally, the different body fluids (blood, lymph).

The head of the child (the occiput in particular) plays an important role in the opening of the natural ways. The normal pressure of a birth forces the bones of the skull overlap to allow its passage. Membranes (meninges) and fluids (cerebrospinal fluid) act as dynamic shock-absorber at birth. These protective mechanisms try to reduce the trauma suffered by the brain. Many common childhood problems can be caused by the mechanical constraints of childbirth (labor and delivery).

Mechanical stresses
of birth:

If the mechanical stresses are necessary for the good progress of the birth, the nervous system can suffer from it. The bones of the skull can also suffer by seeing their re-expansion in their physiological place embarrassed.

 

Some births may seem easy, but the cuts can be very important. An abnormally short work can be just as problematic as a long and difficult one.

 

The newborn may be strongly influenced by these compressive forces, producing structural imbalances and a variety of symptoms. These can range from simple variations of “normality”, irritability to more serious pathologies.

Caesarean section:

It is possible for a caesarean section to be performed to save the life of the newborn, especially when the baby is stuck in the lower strait of the basin, causing significant pressure on its head.

 

Many children are born by caesarean section following a blockage of their head in the lower strait of their mother, making the work long and difficult. Caesarean birth does not prevent mechanical compressions. Other infants born by caesarean section do not undergo mechanical compressions.

 

Some children born by caesarean section are not subject to mechanical compressions. We might think that the absence of traumatic compression is best for him. But other elements lead us to think the opposite: WE NEED TO BE COMPRESSED THROUGH THE LOWER AREA OF THE MOTHERS BASIN.

 

Although traumatic and uncomfortable, these mechanical compressions lead to a cascade of processes necessary for our arrivals. Thus, they allow:

 

  • The umbilical veins spasm and become blocked. The blood will not flowinto the placenta anymore.
  • A hole in the heart closes (foramen ovale).
  • The lungs begin to filter and oxygenate the blood.
  • The lungs start their metabolism.
  • The kidneys now filter the blood.
  • The small intestine now absorbs nutrients.

 

These changes and adaptations must occur in a precise and orderly manner. When the transition between intrauterine and ectopic life is too fast, these transformations of the vascular system can become disorganized. The osteopaths perceive these frustrations or nervous excitability, being able to be at the origin of a number of important problems. Through an atraumatic appearance, the child may still appear irritable, often wakes up, or is predisposed to various infections.

Treatment of children :

Osteopathic treatment relieves the shock of birth and restores vitality, relaxing the nervous system that causes neurological maturation. Not all problems can be solved, but many of them can be relieved. For others, the osteopath may be the answer.

 

Like adults, each child has a physiological constitution of its own. Some of them seem to tolerate the trauma of birth without any side effects. Others are disrupted by insignificant trauma. Each of us is born with our own sensitivity. We are all affected differently by life.

 

What kind of results can you expect? Once again, children are very different. Some will have a rapid and complete disappearance of the first symptoms. Others will require multiple treatments and will only partially recover.
