Local Support

We all need to find our tribe of support to help us throughout our pregnancy and postnatal time. Please find on this page a list of local women whose knowledge and care know no bounds. (The grand majority of which I know personally and/or can attest to their wonderful services myself.)

Chiropractic support for pregnancy, postnatal and babies:


Philippa Wilmot - Alverstoke Chiropractic

Philippa is a Chiropractor who mainly uses the McTimoney method of chiropractic, a light, precise technique. The gentle nature of this technique makes it suitable for babies and pregnant women. She works from Alverstoke Chiropractic in Gosport. I can highly recommend Philippa with regards to Pelvic Girdle Pain during pregnancy.
