Maternity Reflexology (60mins)

Reflexology can benefit a woman at every stage of her pregnancy, from conception through all three trimesters, during labour and even post-partum. 

Trimesters 1, 2, 3  

It is safe to receive reflexology throughout all three trimesters with a trained maternity reflexologist.  

Having reflexology throughout maternity care is a safe and preventative therapy which can help with the common symptoms and conditions that affect women whilst they are pregnant such as:

  • morning sickness and nausea
  • lower back pain
  • sciatica
  • anemia
  • SPD/PGP 
  • heartburn
  • varicose veins
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • constipation
  • cramp
  • high blood pressure
  • odema (swelling)
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • insomnia
  • itching
  • respiratory problems/shortness of breath

As the use of medicines whilst pregnant is limited, reflexology is a useful modality due to it being a non-invasive therapy.  It will help to enhance optimal health and well-being during pregnancy and in preparation for the birth.  

Priming for Labour and Childbirth

There is no evidence that reflexology will induce labour, however, it does help the body to relax at a stressful time and to reach the optimium level for when the body is ready to go into labour naturally.  

After 40 weeks, certain reflexes are stimulated that are connected to the induction of labour to ensure that they are prepared for when the body is ready to begin the birth process.  Working these specific reflexes will never cause premature labour.  

During labour, reflexology can help with the common concerns associated with childbirth such as regulating contractions, reducing pain, backache, helping with urination/bowel movement, releasing retained placenta, normalising breathing and as a basic touch therapy for reassurance and comfort.
