When I was pregnant I really wanted a really relaxing treatment but being pregnant made me very nervous. It was actually during my first pregnancy that I discovered reflexology and the amazing benefits it brought me!
It is very exciting when a fertility reflexology client stays with me for their maternity journey and I get to experience a journey from conception to birth. I trained in Maternity Reflexology with the amazing Sally Earlam (who is on the AOR board) in London. The course has enabled me to work safely and confidently with my pregnant clients.
If you are looking for a hypnobirthing course I recommend 'Luna Bear Birthing'.
You will find the treatment very relaxing and I work with the symptoms you are experiencing to try and make life a bit easier for you before your little one arrives. If you aren't experiencing any symptoms then you will benefit from a truly relaxing treatment. I have found that my pregnant clients who start with monthly treatments followed by weekly treatments benefit the most.
Please note that I am very flexible with my maternity clients when it comes to booking an appointment nearer to their due date. If you have booked an appointment and go into labour then there is of course no charge even if it is a very late cancellation.
I invested in a super comfortable couch that has an adjustable back to ensure my pregnant clients are super comfortable as it is not possible to lay flat during the later stages of pregnancy.
I have received some amazing feedback from my pregnant clients:
I adjust my couch (the back of the couch needs to be at least 45 degrees for my maternity clients) to ensure they are comfortable. A glass of water and blanket is always available.
Group B Strep - for more information please refer to this website. If you have never heard of it Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a normal bacterium which is carried by 20-40% of adults, most commonly in the gut, and for up to 25% of women, in the vagina, usually without symptoms or side-effects. GBS can occasionally cause infection, most commonly in newborn babies, sometimes in adults and, very rarely, during pregnancy and before labour. The ideal time to be tested is between weeks 35-37.
