Maternity reflexology is one of the safest, most supportive therapies for pregnant women and is extremely relaxing and calming for the mind, body and of course our very precious baby.
From the early stages of morning sickness to delivery discomfort, pregnancy can be physically demanding. Reflexology can help with relief of many complaints during pregnancy including;
~ Morning sickness
~ Nausea and headaches, dizzyness
~ Pain & discomfort
~ Loss of bladder control
~ Stress & anxiety
~ Lack of sleep & fatigue
~ Digestive problems e.g. constipation, heartburn
~ Fluid retention
Help prevent haemorrhoids
Reflexology can play an important role leading up to the birth. There is documented evidence supporting the fact that expectant mothers who received regular reflexology treatments during their pregnancy experienced significantly shorter labours with less intervention than those who didn’t receive any treatments.
Once a baby has arrived, parents’ lives may be thrown into unusual routines, feeding times, lack of sleep, and general exhaustion.
Reflexology can help to;
~ Calm and relax
~ Increase energy levels
~ Re-balance the body
~ Stabilise body weight
~ Aid lactation
~ Prevent or reduce post-natal depression
Reflexology can help to make any pregnancy an enjoyable experience.
I personally experienced positive benefits from having treatments during and after my pregnancy which is why I am so pleased to now be able to offer this to other mums to be.
Please pm me on here or just for a chat about the benefits of Reflexology during pregnancy.

I am just bumping this up…as my pregnant ladies who came to me following this original post have either just had their babies or are just about to give birth….
Its wonderful to hear everyone’s individual birth stories & all are so different but each one of my mums have said that felt Reflexology really was a help during the pregnancy and labour….and feedback about babies so far are that they are indeed calmer babies…….
So now I would love to have another group of Mumstown mums to pamper.
Thanks again for reading.
