Preparation for birth
As the due date approaches it may be beneficial to have more regular treatments to aid relaxation and boost wellbeing.
Reflexology treatments allow you some precious time to yourself, to relax and focus entirely on you and your baby.
Research studies have found that reflexology during pregnancy reduces the time of first stage labour and also decreases pain during labour.
Reflexology at this time can be especially important, promoting both physical and emotional well being.
Treatments can be shared with your baby and provide the opportunity to bond in a calming environment.
Or they can be alone, giving you the time to relax and re charge.
Reflexology is provided alongside all other medical treatment, working together with your GP, midwife and consultant.
