Abstract : Four in ten French people have already consulted with medicines called non-conventional that osteopathy. In obstetrics, in response to public demands and health professionals "return to nature" osteopathy can provide answers. The objective of this study is to look to a possible link between osteopathy and delivery modalities. To achieve this, a retrospective single-center observational study exposed-unexposed was conducted over a period of seven months at the maternity of Aubagne. Few significant results have been highlighted because of the small size of the population and many biases identified However, it is found in primiparous a decrease in oxytocin use rate (p = 0.06) and in multiparous a zero rate of episiotomies (p = 0.04). In the literature, it is found the results in favor of osteopathy as a reduction in working hours and the rate of instrumental delivery. Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy would therefore tend to positively influence the course of the birth.
