                                                        Pregnancy Reflexology is one of the most popular complementary

                                                        therapies used during maternity because it improves general well-being,                                                            energy and promotes balance. Pregnancy reflexology can assists with relieving symptoms or preventing the many   discomforts and ailments commonly associated with pregnancy. Offers a natural and safe way of helping you to   cope with the rapid changes your body goes through during pregnancy. Women who have received reflexology   during their pregnancy may/can experience shorter labour times and less need for painkillers. Reflexology can   also have a positive impact on postpartum/postnatal depression, anxiety and hormone levels.

It improves general well-being, is very pleasant to receive, and induces a deep relaxation so your body can adjust  more smoothly to the major changes required at this time. 

May help to ease pregnancy, delivery and post-natal ailments including:

  • Anxiety and stress reduction

  • Anaemia

  • Appetite regulation

  • Back Pain

  • Blood pressure regulation (exception of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia)

  • Constipation

  • Energy Levels.

  • Gestational Diabetes

  • Hemorrhoids

  • Headaches

  • Heartburn

  • Hormonal Imbalance 

  • Fatigue

  • Insomnia

  • Muscular fatigue

  • Morning sickness

  • Oedema

  • Sciatica 

  • SPD

  • Post Natal Depression 

Regular pregnancy reflexology sessions will help support you, encouraging your mind and body to remain in balance, easing minor ailments, aches and pains.

Pregnancy Reflexology can be used from your first trimester onwards. Studies have shown that starting reflexology by 32 weeks can reduce the need for induction by 70% as well as reduce labour time down to just 4 hours.

Pregnancy Reflexology treatments in the very late stages of pregnancy will help you to become deeply relaxed and during the last few weeks of your pregnancy I can use powerful techniques to help stimulate the hormone Oxytocin that promotes labour and encourages the birthing process to start.

Priming for Labour

To get the maximum effect of “priming for labour“, I recommend that you schedule an appointment 2 or 3 days before you are due, on your due date, and then again 2 or 3 days past your due date.

During Labour, Reflexology is a beneficial form of pain relief, reduces stress, helps with falling energy levels and often helps ensure a shorter labour.

It’s important to inform me as soon as you are aware or think that you may be pregnant, as it’s a different treatment to support the growing baby and changes your body will experience.  If there is a history of miscarriage it is advised to avoid reflexology until after 12 weeks. 

If you have any of the following conditions it is advisable to receive immediate medical attention:

  • Placental abruption

  • Placenta Praevia

  • Bleeding

  • Continuous vomiting

  • Toxaemia- Pre Eclampsia/ Eclampsia

  • Pica Syndrome

  • HELLP Syndrome

  • DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

Please note: Fertility and Pregnancy, Postnatal Reflexology is a wonderful complementary health support but it is not a substitute for medical and obstetric care, if you have any concerns please do seek medical advice.
