Pregnancy and Birth Treatments
At Nurture 4 Life we have years of experience working with pregnant women and their partners, many having become pregnant in difficult circumstances.
It’s completely natural to feel a little daunted at the prospect of parenthood as well as all the changes your body will go through and we understand the worries and fears that you may be feeling alongside the excitement and joy.
Nicky and her team are here to help you and your partner cope with the challenges and enjoy the wonders of pregnancy. We offer a range of treatments and therapies that will help you to give your baby a great start by ensuring you are healthy, calm, relaxed and sleeping well. We’ll also help you to prepare for a positive birth.
Please note that the full range of treatments may not be available while Covid19 restrictions remain in place but please just contact us to discuss your needs – we are always happy to advise and recommend appropriate and helpful treatment options.
Advanced and specialised techniques work with your body to help ease the physical and emotional strain of pregnancy and maximise the health of you and your baby. These treatments are safe to have from day one of your pregnancy, right up until baby’s arrival. And may even encourage their arrival!
Research has shown that women who receive at least nine reflexology treatments during pregnancy may experience shorter birthing times, less pain relief, and reduced medical intervention.
Your body is placed under enormous physical strain when you’re pregnant – you’re carrying precious but sometimes heavy cargo and you want to feel as comfortable as you can. Pregnancy massage can help you achieve just that. It is nurturing and effective, easing muscular and joint tension, aches and pains, leg cramps, headaches and fluid retention. It can also aid relaxation, improve sleep and increase mobility. And all in the most comfortable position for you and bump.
During pregnancy physical changes occur in the body to prepare for labour such as the pelvis tilting forwards, ligaments becoming looser and the abdomen expanding and increasing weight on your legs and hips. These changes add stress to the body, and in some women can lead to changes such as pelvic pain, SPD, sciatica, low back pain and shoulder pain. A range of techniques are used to improve these symptoms and you will also learn exercises and be given advice you can easily follow at home to help improve your pregnancy-related symptoms .
Positive Birth Preparation
Positive Birth Preparation sessions and workshops give you the opportunity to discuss any fears or concerns you may have about the birth and learn skills to help yourself overcome them. A combination of active birth ideas, deep relaxation and hypnotherapy are used to help prepare you mentally and physically for a positive birth experience.
The first step is to schedule a call with Nicky. This call is completely free of charge and without any obligation whatsoever. During your chat, you will learn more about the different pregnancy and birth therapies that we offer and you will receive support and advice on how to look after yourself and your baby during these important weeks and months.
By the end of the call you will have had all of your questions answered and you will have a clear idea of the best treatments for you. At this point, if you decide you would like to continue on your Nurture 4 Life journey, Nicky will book your first appointment for your first treatment.
