Maternity Reflexology - Birth

One can use Reflexology after once you are 37 week to prepare your body and mind for labour and the birth of your baby.

There are a number of reflexes to help your body to cope with the change it needs to go through for labour to start. Your body will do these things naturally, but with some help with reflexology it will support the process.

Reflexology priming labour is a method by which specific reflex points are strongly stimulated with the intention of creating a boost of energy to encourage the onset of labour contractions. Many women who are post-term and have no problems, respond well. One or two treatments may be necessary, if no previous reflexology has been given.

Reflex the aim
Pelvis reflex to soften and widen for baby to pass through
Hormone reflexes Stimulate to help the onset of labour and ensure a balanced approach to the hormones like oxytocin which encourages contractions to start.
Head, neck and spine reflexes Relax mother and baby and stimulate the messages from the brain and spine to the rest of the body.
Cervix reflex to encourage dilation
Uterus reflex to encourage contractions
Baby reflex to give them energy for the birth

Baby's Here! Postnatal Reflexology

Once your baby is born, your body still has a lot to deal with. Reflexology can smooth the way and may help you avoid some conditions and can help others to pass by without drama such as: sleep quality blocked breast ducts, mastitis, stress, frustration, tiredness, loss of energy.

I offer a postnatal mobile service to your home in which you can breast feed or sleep through your treatment and have your baby by your side.
Alternatively, lots of new mums bring their babies with them to my practice and are able to attend to their baby's needs whilst enjoying treatment.

After birth Reflexology may help with:

  • Stabilizing bodyweight
  • Insomnia
  • Replacing energy loss
  • Aid milk flow
  • Caesarian recovery
  • Post natal depression
  • Stress and tiredness
  • Helping with mastitis/blocked milk ducts
  • Helping uterus return to it's original state.
