Pregnancy and birth is a time for new beginnings. A healing and caring touch is so vital to a mother''s well-being as she adapts to her new body. Regardless of individual circumstances, a pregnant woman''s body is challenged, changed and stressed in so many ways. A therapeutic and nurturing massage gives special attention to the mother-to-be, which in turn nurtures the new life that grows within her. Prenatal massage relieves many of the normal discomforts of pregnancy such as backache, muscle cramps, neck and headaches and water retention. It also increases blood and lymph circulation, which in turn brings more oxygen and nutrients to you and baby. This means greater vitality and less fatigue for you. Postnatal massage assists the body in ''settling back down''. It helps to restore energy levels after labour and helps to balance hormones and gives you some time much needed time to yourself. It eases muscular tension and fatigue, facilitates healing, stimulates the return of energy and circulation and eases backache and shoulder pain. The treatment will normally consist of massaging the whole body, however it can be tailored to suit your needs. You will leave feeling nourished, supported and completely relaxed knowing you are in good hands. The first treatment lasts an hour and a half with a consultation and follow up treatments will last an hour. I am also a Doula (birthing partner) and have trained with Nurturing Birth. A birth doula is a professional non medical assistance, whose role is to provide continuous support to the mother and father during birth, act as a liaison between hospital staff and their birth family and to provide one to one care that the hospital staff may be unable to to provide. A post natal doula works flexible hours offering practical and emotional support to the new mother and father in the home following the birth of a baby. Having three children myself, I can truly understand what a woman goes through, how she feels, what her anxieties are whilst being pregnant and after birth. I believe that by helping a woman to be well informed and to feel supported and empowered, you can have a positive birth experience you will always cherish. Home visits also welcomed.
