Pregnancy is a truly amazing natural process where the women’s body is designed to carefully grow and produce babies. Whilst many ladies feel great while pregnant, for some it can be a hard and tiring process. It`s fairly commonplace to feel aches, pains and discomfort through pregnancy and can be an anxious and tiring time for expectant Mums, especially in first pregnancies with the fear of the unknown.
At Bodyflow we treat from conception through to labour and postpartum. The first trimester can bring morning sickness, acidity, exhaustion, mood swings and other niggles along the way. We help iron these out with profound and long-lasting effects. We also help encourage and promote growth of the baby from the day of conception for those who may have experienced miscarriage.
The second trimester often brings energy and a spring on your step. However, aches and pains, constipation, tiredness, acidity and heart burn can occur, so by having a Bodyflow reflexology treatment will help create space in the body and provide you with the boost that you need to feel energised and ready to tackle your day.
The third trimester is when we should start slowing down and listening to our bodies in a way that nature tells us. The body is gently and slowly preparing for labour, the baby descends and the body softens and opens. Often ladies will experience pain in the lower back, hips and on the pubic bone. Acidity, SPD, swelling, digestive issues, breathlessness and tight ribs. Our treatment is designed to help open and create space to prepare the body for labour, reduce BP, lymphatically drain the stored fluids that build up in the body creating swelling, open the hips, turn breech babies, prepares the perineum and stimulates natural induction when you are ready.
Birth-day- After a course of Bodyflow birth preparation treatments, your body will be ready for a wonderful labour and help aid your healing and recovery postpartum.
The fourth trimester is often when we completely forget about ourselves and are expected to get on with every day things with no rest and healing time. This is one of the most important times to listen to your body and do what it asks for. Feed, eat and sleep, for both you and your new born for a number of weeks and especially after a C-section is the best option.
If you have had an epidural, spinal block or any medical intervention, then it is a very good idea to allow the body to recover slowly. Stitches, episiotomy, ventouse, forceps can create trauma within the body and our treatments will help remove and balance. Remember you are not invincible and you will heal a lot quicker if you are gentle and kind on yourself postpartum. Your milk will flow easily and your baby will be happier. Bodyflow reflexology will help promote your recovery and heal from within.
