Reflexology in Pregnancy

Preparation For Birth

Research has shown that mums-to-be who received regular reflexology treatments throughout their pregnancy, had a marked reduction in the duration of their labour and a significant reduction in their need for pain relief.

Sometimes expectant mums may not have their babies until well after their estimated "due date", which may result in them needing a medical induction to start and accelerate labour. A treatment from a Maternity Reflexology Specialist at this late stage of pregnancy can help the body to relax and prepare for birth and can result in the spontaneous onset of labour, preventing the need for medical intervention.

The body goes through incredible physical, emotional and hormonal changes in pregnancy. Maternity reflexology given by a qualified therapist will gently guide your body through this process, encouraging the pathways (meridians) to be free flowing. This will help prevent or aid recovery from the ailments pregnancy and childbirth can bring :

  • Heart burn
  • Tiredness
  • Headaches
  • Morning sickness
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fluid retention
  • Sciatica and lower back pain
  • Sacro-iliac / Symphasis Pubis dysfunction
