Maternity Reflexology - prepare for a more positive birth experience...


Suffering pregnancy discomfort? Does the thought of labour worry you?

A calming and soothing reflexology session will encourage deep relaxation and ensure that you get an hour of much needed tranquility JUST FOR YOU! 'Switching off' when you are pregnant can be increasingly difficult to do - especially if you already have other children to care for. Putting time aside for reflexology during your pregnancy, may help ease some of those pregnancy niggles and will give you the chance to invest in that new little life growing within you. But most importantly, it could lead to an easier labour!

  • A research study has found that reflexology during pregnancy significantly eased pain during labour and reduced the length of the first stage of labour. (1)

  • Other research has found that first time mums who received 10 reflexology treatments leading up to birth, had average labour times of 5 to 6 hours (text book average is 18-24 hours). The group treated with reflexology needed far less pain relief during labour. (2)





  • I am passionate about helping women achieve the very best birth experience that they can have... Over the past sixteen years, I have supported hundreds of expectant mums throughout their pregnancies and know just how beneficial reflexology can be. Treatments may help ease some of the common discomforts of pregnancy that you may be experiencing and help prepare you - both physically and emotionally - for the birth of your baby.

    As an experienced maternity reflexologist, I work in a complementary way alongside the skilled work of your midwife, so I will ask you to confirm that you have your midwife's permission for me to treat you, before attending your first maternity reflexology session.
