Pregnancy can be wonderful, and also really rough!

Fundamentally, it’s a time when you need support; your body is changing, you are changing, your relationships and work life are shifting. How can you continue on as normal when there’s the incredible process going on inside you all the time that just so happens to have you conked out on the sofa at 7pm every single night?!

If you don’t have a strong crew around you, now is the time to start building one, so start scoping out your local mum scene and find your mum mates at a great pregnancy class. Having one or two go-to practitioners for support can also be invaluable. >>>>Spoiler alert: This is where I come in!<<<<

Acupuncture – I popped my cherry around week 6 and MY GOD it really did make the most difference to my nausea. Maisie is some kind of magical mystical Goddess who really understood my body and what was going on. I hardly had to say anything (mainly because I felt so rough) and she just popped needles into certain points on my body.

What can I help with?

I have an extensive background in supporting pregnant women and have had success with treating and managing conditions such as; nausea and vomiting, back and pelvic pain, sciatica, heartburn, digestive issues, haemorrhoids, vulval varices, insomnia, carpal tunnel, anxiety and depression. I’ve also worked as a birth doula for the last ten years so I’m really up on all things related to pregnancy, birth, feeding and motherhood.

Having a woman who could not only treat the litany of headaches/pains/piles/insomnia and give real relief… and at the same time give wise and calming answers to my birth questions and, I confess, act as a bit of a shrink.. well it was great!

Acupuncture is an effective way to treat many unpleasant pregnancy symptoms and can safely be used throughout all three trimesters. Pregnancy massage and reflexology can work wonders too and can be used from the start of the second trimester. I’m also happy to combine therapies and find that using acupuncture with reflexology is a pretty awesome way to help you drift off and take care of any issues you’ve got going on (I’m a firm believer that all pregnant women should have the joy of having their feet tended to).

This afternoon I feel quite energised and my nagging worries about the birth have completely left me. I feel much more relaxed – it’s almost like my body won’t allow me to get anxious about it! Which again I feel is a result of our treatment. Thank you!
