Maternity Reflexology

15-07-16-reflexologyMaternity Reflexology, right from the very beginning or at any stage, can help with the many discomforts women experience, and optimize wellbeing. It is beneficial throughout pregnancy and beyond.

It offers relief from common pregnancy problems such as:

  • Backache
  • Morning Sickness
  • Fluid retention, swollen ankles, carpal tunnel
  • Stress, anxiety, mood swings
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Energy levels
  • Nausea and heartburn
  • Blood pressure concerns
  • Tiredness
  • Migraines
  • Post natal depression
  • Constipation
  • Pelvic pain (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)
  • Low immune system

Special reflexology protocols are also safely used

  • To help turn breech babies (after 36 weeks)
  • To prime for labour (induction) (for overdue babies)

Receiving regular reflexology treatments ensure that your body is in the best possible state to go through labour and the immediate postnatal recovery period. However one-off treatments are still extremely useful, to lower stress levels, address problems and to try to avoid hospital induction with very overdue babies. But the momentum of at least 3 sessions before the due day is most valuable to increase chances of naturally triggered birth, including for Vaginal births after Caesar (VBAC’s).

Reflexology supports breastfeeding as well as helping with postnatal depression and general relaxation.

After giving birth, it can help your body readjust more quickly and cope better with the hormonal change and lack of sleep.

Finally, when there has been a previous miscarriage, reflexology will rebalance the whole being, and generally pave the way to increase chances of a safe pregnancy to full term.
