    Hi lovely ladies,

    Does anyone have any advice on how to get rid of sciatica or at least help?

    I've been in pain for about a week now. My midwife referred me to an osteopath, which I went to this morning.

    It felt slightly better at the time but now I don't feel any better at all. It's making it so difficult to walk around.

    Any advice/help would be really, really appreciated.

    Thanks

    xxxxx

    i have had sciatic problems since i was preg with my DD i have learned stretching really helps. YOu need to do stretches that target that area. It will at least to help relive the pain. Since being pregnant again just yesterday it kicked up pretty bad again and i knew it was time to stretch lol

    sitting on a birthing ball is the only thing that helps me, it takes pressure off that area as well as opens your hips to stretch things out.
