During pregnancy the body changes to accommodate the growing baby and this can result in common complaints such as aches and pains, nausea and vomiting, heartburn, morning sickness, breathing difficulties, varicose veins and haemorroids. The Mum and Baby team offer a package two therapies tailored to meet all your needs during this time of change. Our Pregnancy package can also help with changing emotions, fear, anxiety, physical and emotional support during labour.
Postnatal Care Package:
As any parent will tell you, having a baby has a huge impact on your life. The changes you go through can take some time adjusting to and it is quite common for women to overlook their emotional needs in the months after the baby is born. Our Postnatal Care Package will offer support to any new mum.
We also offer supportive groups such as Baby Massage and Mum & Baby Yoga.
The birth process is one of the most physically demanding experiences any of us will ever go through. Our carefully tailored Baby package of care may help many of the physical and emotional symptoms experienced by babies.
The choice of therapies you wish to see included in your package is entirely up to you. In order to facilitate your decision-making process we have provided a brief description of what each of the therapies entails. However, if you are unsure, you can call the C.H.A.I.M. Centre to seek advice.
About our therapies:
Both Shiatsu and Craniosacral therapy are deeply relaxing and therapeutic forms of bodywork which can effectively treat the wide range of symptoms, physical and emotional, which commonly arise during pregnancy or postnatally.
Shiatsu points can be used to turn a breech baby, to naturally induce labour, and can be used by a birth partner to support the process of labour itself.
Craniosacral Therapy, with its very gentle contact, is also a highly effective treatment for babies.
Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine, which stimulates your body to heal itself gently from within, thereby helping you overcome illness and boosting your immune system to prevent future illnesses. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances, which are completely safe, non toxic and non-addictive. Homeopathy is therefore highly recommended during pregnancy, for postnatal care and for babies. A particular benefit of using homeopathy in pregnancy is that not only will you benefit from the remedies, but so will your growing baby. For babies homeopathy can offer a safe alternative to conventional drugs, such as antibiotics and steroid creams.
Pregnancy Massage is a therapeutic touch during pregnancy is highly beneficial for the “mum-to-be” easing musculo-skeletal pains caused by stress on weight bearing joints. After delivery, postnatal massage will help the body regain its shape and it will also stimulate the blood circulation. In a holistic and natural way, baby massage will help you to promote the health and development of your baby, deepen the bonding and improve parenting skills. Massage will nurture your Body and your Mind!
The cranial approach is gentle, safe and effective at all stages of pregnancy and recovery after childbirth for mother and baby. Very specific, skilled, light pressure is applied where necessary to work with the body’s own natural mechanism for releasing and rebalancing tensions. Treatment can help the mother to return to normal, physically and emotionally and also prevent the baby from suffering the long term effects from the moulding process during birth..
Acupuncture treatments can aid fertility, and in pregnancy can help with morning sickness, lower back pain, swelling and help with the positioning of the baby. For post-pregnancy, it can ensure that the hormones balance to help alleviate any ‘blues’ or depression that can sometimes follow and ensure that the mother feels strong and full of energy at this time.
Bowen Therapy is a very gentle treatment and can help many childhood problems so is an excellent treatment for babies and children. Babies as young as one day old can have this treatment. The treatment affects the body in ways that promote healing, pain relief and recovery of energy. Gentle rolling movement of fingers and thumbs carries out this simple and effective practice over precise points of connective tissue and muscle. These movements encourage subtle changes and adjustments in the body, help to reduce pain, relieve stress and raise energy levels. During the treatment there are periods when the client is left to rest. This allows the body to absorb the changes that initiate the healing process and re-alignment.
