Regular reflexology aims to encourage your body to prepare for labour. For a good labour, we want the cervix to come forward, shorten, thin and eventually dilate. For most first time mums, this happens in labour. With massage on specific areas of the foot, I aim encourage the body to start doing these things in advance of labour.
There is no guarentee that reflexology can encourage labour to start. If you are generally ready, it may encourage labour 48hours before you would have laboured anyway. i believe if reflexology doesn’t start labour before medical intervention, it could get your a more effective labour when labour does start.
Having a couple of treatments is most beneficial, but if you’ve just found me, i think something is better than nothing! Book now text 07711938856.
With your first 3 bookings of reflexology, I have a mini at-home guide video I will send you the link for as a thank you for the block booking.

Encouraging labour with at-home remedies notes
Areas of the feet and ankles are pressed firmly for 2 minutes. They’re called trigger point release and they may feel like I’m pressing on a bruised area.
“I attended Louise’s workshop, Louise is a wealth of knowledge and is generous with sharing it. The workshop itself was multi faceted with birthing and aromatherapy information, exercises to open the pelvis and prepare for and assist in birth and hand out sheets to practice with at home. The high light though was finishing with Reflexology, Louise has amazing hands which intuitively go to the areas needed, I was walking on air after. I would highly recommend to all pregnant women”
“Louise is an amazing and talented therapist! She is gentle, compassionate and knows what she is doing. She turned my breach baby at 37 weeks of gestations, when the hospital has given up hope the baby was going to turn and was going to be sceduled for a c section. Then I went for acupressure massage, baby was head down two days after that when we were booked for the operation at the hospital. Thanks to Louise I got a chance for a natural labour. Have recommended her to everyone I know when they struggle in pregnancy.”
“From 0cm dilated to his birth = less than 3h. It was a good birthing experience. Thank you for your help and support.

Mind Body and Bump Treatment Room
Expectant mothers are not recommended to lay on your back (and it may be uncomfortable to do so anyway!) I have a fully electronic couch that cradles your body in a semi reclined sitting position. It has several inches of padding for comfort and I don’t use any couch paper, so you’ll be sitting on warmed, soft towels for your treatment. I choose music similar to that you’d find in a spa; non intrusive, but perfect to get lost in.
