My name is Claire and I work as a Holistic Massage Therapist, specialising in Pregnancy
Massage. I have undertaken excellent pregnancy massage training with Suzanne Yates at
I offer massage sessions which are focussed on you, and what your needs are at the time we
work together. I aim to offer a space and experience that supports you in nurturing and
relaxing your body (which in turn nurtures and relaxes your baby), releases overwhelm, and
enables you to feel comfortable and engaged in your changing body. It’s somewhere that
you can be focussed on how you feel and what you need. Time-out to be nurtured, where
you can switch off from outside noise and demands and connect with yourself and the
growing life inside you.
Sessions last an hour and a half, in order to really give you time to let go and connect. I
support you through guided visualisations, breathing exercises, movement, pelvic floor
awareness and massage. The massage, which also includes gentle shiatsu work can take
place using a birthing ball, massage table or a futon on the floor. I can work with you at any
stage of pregnancy.
Pregnancy massage can feel like a ‘pampering’ experience, but actually, massage for
pregnant women has been practised in different cultures around the world for many years.
It could be considered an essential to pre- natal care. Not only does the experience aim to
prevent and alleviate any physical discomfort, but it may also support increased blood flow
(which is great for your growing baby), improved digestion, better sleep, reduced stress and
greater sense of emotional wellbeing.
Hi, my name is Angie. I am a registered midwife, and mother of three who has been working in the NHS most of my adult life. I have been working as a community midwife for the past four years and have had the privilege of caring for many women and their babies throughout their pregnancies, labours and throughout their postnatal.
Increasingly over the years, the NHS has sadly been stretched and this often leads to women not being able to access their midwife so readily. We aim as midwives to provide the very best of care and give our undivided attention, but this can often be difficult with huge caseloads and shortfalls in staffing. Over time I have been getting increasingly frustrated with not being able to provide the time and space that I feel pregnant women so rightly deserved.
This is when I decided to train as a massage therapist.
Giving a massage is a wonderful space where you get to give that person your undivided attention. It has huge physical and emotional benefits and allows women the space and time just for them. You can ask me any questions during this protected time just for you!
I have undertaken a FHT accredited level 3 in massage therapies.
I then went on to do training in pregnancy aromatherapy with Expectancy, the world renowned provider of RCM accredited complementary therapies specifically for midwives and also have trained in baby massage and baby yoga with Hands on babies, also an RCM accredited course.
