As an experienced midwife, I am particularly happy to work with expectant mothers.
This massage is a rhythmic, flowing treatment that relieves pain and muscle tension, it improves sleep, and gives you the opportunity to be in deep connection with your baby and prepare your body for childbirth. The warm table supports you to drop into deep relaxation. .In the first half of pregnancy you can lie on your stomach and back. In later pregnancy the massage is given in the lateral position.
60 Min - £60
90 Min - £85
This work is very close to my heart as I have supported many women who have encountered challenges during their births which often originated in a time long before the birthing day. Unfortunately, many women have encountered trauma in their vaginas. This ranges from painful vaginal examinations or smear tests, painful sex, abusive or traumatic intimate encounters, cervical ablations or biopsies, traumatic births, surgery, tears etc
Our bodies are perfectly formed and designed to birth babies! Sometimes we combine genes ( with our partners) that grow babies too big for our pelvises but our vaginas are able to birth!
But birth requires us women to totally surrender into the process so that our vaginas can be soft, stretchy and able to let our babies pass through. For that to be possible, we need to trust our own bodies, our partners, our supporters during the birth.
This massage work supports you to release held trauma in the tissues and to learn about your own body, to understand it and to know what it takes to drop into a soft openness for birth.
It is essential to have sufficient time to prepare the body. A series of monthly massages is recommended. From 16 weeks.

Please contact me if you feel a resonance but have worries, concerns, questions - I am here to talk.
The Mama & Baby massage is a joy and nourishing gift for everyone involved. After the effort of birth, physically and often emotionally, the Lomi massage is a wonderful way to feel relaxation, balance and renewed inner strength. The new mother can be massaged in lateral and supine position and as soon as it is comfortable, lie on her tummy again.
The baby is welcome and can enjoy the warmth and tranquility on the sheepskin, or be on the massage table with you, lying, cuddling or nursing - and that is sometimes very healing for women, especially after a traumatic birth or separation from the baby.
The Lomi massage is wonderfully flexible and perfect for mother and baby.
