As pregnancy reflexology is of special interest to me, I have undertaken additional training in this area and also have over 8 years experience of working with lovely pregnant ladies! My pregnancy reflexology experience and qualifications to date are:
- Part 1 of Susanne Enzer’s Maternity Reflexology training, led by certified trainer Gill Thomson (who is also a midwife, health visitor and reflexologist). This covered pre-conceptual and pregnancy care. (July 2010)
- Part 2 of Susanne Enzer’s Maternity Reflexology training, led by certified trainer Gill Thomson. This covered birthing care, postnatal care and newborn baby care. (June 2011)
- Miscarriage and Loss workshop organized by the Maternity Reflexology consortium. (November 2010)
- Pregnancy Loss Seminar, a one day seminar discussing issues surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death and how best to support couples going through these very challenging experiences, this was organised by the charity group Life. (March 2011)
I also attended the UK’s first Maternity Reflexology Conference on the 6th and 7th November 2010. This covered: making babies, carrying babies, birthing babies and mothering babies and had many interesting speakers from the UK and abroad who are at the forefront of their fields in maternity reflexology care.
As well as experiencing regular reflexology myself throughout my pregnancies, I have also been lucky enough to give clients reflexology during the preconception, pregnancy and post-natal periods. This has been a real privilege, accompanying and supporting women on their exciting and sometimes challenging journeys, as they make their way from pregnancy to motherhood and beyond. I have learnt a huge amount from these women and I don’t believe that there would be much you could say or experience that I haven’t come across before!!
So if you do have a particular challenge or unusual pregnancy issue then please do contact me to see how reflexology may be able to help and support you.
