I am an independent Midwife. I offer private Antenatal care and private postnatal care to suit your individual needs.
All of my consultations will be held in the comfort of your own home, where you will be given the time to discuss any issues or concerns you have. How long the appointment will last will very much depend on your own needs, but rest assured that they will never be rushed! Pregnancy and the birth of your baby is a very individual experience and therefore I feel that it is very important that you are at the centre of your own care, with me guiding you through your amazing journey.
I am a qualified pregnancy massage therapist and offer pregnancy massage, postnatal massage, pregnancy hydrotherm massage and specialist pregnancy aromatherapy massage that is undertaken and administer in a safe and appropriate manner to suit your pregnancy needs. All of my massages are undertaken on a Hydrotherm system, which is a system of warm water filled cushions and heater that feels so comfortable! It means that the whole of your massage can be done in a semi recumbent position that fully supports and aligns your spine and does not put any pressure on your muscles or joints. No more uncomfortable side lying or moving around, which can be extremely difficult, especially in your last trimester and when a massage is extremely beneficial.
I run baby massage classes and baby yoga classes at Unberslade Park Farm and Henley Hub. Classes are run in blocs of 5 sessions.
At baby massage class you will learn about the amazing benefits of baby massage for both you and your baby. You will be given a bottle of the finest cold pressed organic baby massage oil and a how too guide so that you can practice at home. All classes will take place in a friendly environment giving you the chance to socialize with your peers.
In baby yoga you will learn a sequence of stretches, poses and moves that will enhance babies physiological and physiological development. As well as learning new moves you will also learn how to communicate with your baby through their body language. Some of the moves will incorporate babies natural reflexes in a way that will help them build in confidence and in turn help them to grow into a happy confident child.
