Home Prenatal Pregnancy Massage - South East London & North Kent
The Mother & Bump prenatal pregnancy massage is offered to mothers/people at all three stages of pregnancy. It is a highly relaxing, soothing and calming massage for the various stages of pregnancy. During this massage, you will lie on your side, with pillows, warm blankets and towels to support your body and bump. Relaxing music, low lighting and oils provide the spa experience in the comfort of your home. The pregnancy massage can be of benefit to the mother but also to their unborn baby. A prenatal massage can emotionally and physiologically support the mother during a time of significant change in the body, which can put strains and stresses on a mothers muscles and joints, leaving you feeling exhausted and, for some women, in pain by the end of the day
Pregnancy can be an excellent time for a woman. However, the process puts pressure on joints, ligaments and organs, causing discomfort and pain. Pregnancy can also be a stressful time for the mother, for many reasons. Massage will help with stress levels due to its calming effect. In addition, regular massage whilst pregnant can make the mother more aware of her own body, helping them with the ability to relax outside of the treatment.

Home Postnatal Massage- South East London & North Kent Only
Once the baby has arrived, it’s essential, if a little harder, to find time for yourself to relax. Not only is your body recovering from childbirth, but your new job as a mum/parent: carrying, feeding, falling asleep with your baby in strange positions. Natelie can work on soothing your aches and pains, whilst offering a listening ear for new mums to ease your concerns as part of the treatment. It helps to switch your body and mind into restore mode, which is important when you feel depleted of energy in every way imaginable. For example, calming the aching and sore and tense body from labour and the strains of pregnancy or from a long achy disturbed night with feeding.
This treatment helps in kickstarting your body into rest and repair. Postnatal massage is so important, calming the overworked, anxious mind that is common and normal too! If you are planning you're postnatal; this totally should be on the list as one of your self-care tools. You may have a treatment within days after birth no matter what your birthing experience has been as your treatment is tailored to your individual needs, Natelie's skill of offering a listening ear, as well as offering tips, information and referrals when needed, are all part of this Postnatal service. The postnatal period is from birth and, as Natelie is concerned, is forever after the birth of your baby, so you may have a one-off are have a package of treatments whatever you feel will serve you.
The Mother & Bump Fear- Less Birth Preparation, Hypnobirthing course has been designed to empower women and their birth partners to create positive birth experiences. A positive birth experience matters and it offers lifelong benefits for mother, baby and partner.
A comprehensive course borrows on the principles of mediation which help to ease expectant people into a state of calm so their bodies can fully relax in pregnancy, labour, and childbirth. It is retraining the mind through encouragement helping you to go back into the tools that your body has already and is in within every birthing person naturally. By using breathing techniques, scripts, anchors affirmations, looking at the science of birth and different birth pathways. These simple tools help a birthing person to be able to cope with or without pain medication in a calm and relaxed manner.
Your Body, Your Choice, Your Pathway, Your Journey!
Natelie has added her years of experience as a massage therapist and experienced doula and has included active movement for labour and birth and massage and other nuggets of information that I know will benefit each parent on their learning journey. Don't worry the hypnobirthing element to the course won't have you barking like a dog or walking like a chicken. This is always about your choice, your pathway, your journey. What you will feel at the end of this course is calm, confident, and looking forward to giving birth to your baby.

Pregnancy & Wellbeing Event Greenwich University 2018
Really great pace class & empowering for me and my partner 2018. Thank you for all your support in preparing, I can’t tell you how much the partner techniques you taught us helped us. Starting with a walk in the park, then on all fours on the ball, dancing around, upright rocking in the shower, side-lying with meditations on etc - all the way through I had Dave ready to push on my sacrum when I had a surge and that helped so much to have that rhythm and get us so far along in labour basically on our own!
