Birth Inspirations from a Doula and Reflexologist

What is your focus in birth preparation and personal empowerment in the weeks prior to the birth of your baby? Your birthing experience is as unique as you are and deserves to be respected with joy and enthusiasm.

Reflexology… how supportive is this in pregnancy, labour and birth, and after birth? Reflexology is a complementary therapy where fingers and hands are used to massage and apply pressure mainly on the feet and on some other parts of the body.

Therapeutic Reflexology

Based on the principle that every organ in the body is reflected on specific areas (reflexes) of the feet, hand and ears, a combination of finger pressure and massage techniques are applied to the feet, hands and ears.
Reflexology affects all body systems resulting in improved general functioning, relieving stress and specific conditions.

Postbirth Reflection

In the days, weeks or months after childbirth, mothers can come and share their birth story with each other in a compassionate and nurturing space.

I facilitate this session with a small group of mothers. Sharing your story helps you to voice and recognize your strength and courage as a mother.

Doula Services

The Greek word doula means woman caregiver. We now use the word to describe a trained and experienced labour companion who provides the woman and her husband continuous emotional support, physical comfort and assistance in obtaining information before, during and just after childbirth. The medical world defines doula services as non-medical.
