Birth Ready Massage

33 - 40+ weeks

Pregnancy in Balance

33-38 weeks

This specialised treatment is appropriate from 33 weeks gestation to help create musculoskeletal alignment in the supporting muscles and ligaments of the thoracic and lumbar spine, ribcage and pelvic/uterine ligaments. This helps create a more symmetrical space within which your baby can attain optimal foetal positioning.

This massage treatment includes stimulating acupressure points +/- moxibustion to assist with baby's position if baby is breech, transverse or posterior. A PDF is emailed after the treatment with guidance and instruction on the use of moxibustion at home (where appropriate) and guidance in some spinning babies soft tissue balancing techniques to create balance, movement and gravity.

If you are unable to attend a face-to-face appointment a Pregnancy in Balance kit is available and can be purchased separately as an ‘at home’ treatment. This is for low-risk pregnancies to assist with a consistently breech or transverse positioned baby from 32+ weeks.

If this is your first Bellies & Bubs experience, or it's a new pregnancy (thank you for returning), please fill in this online health form  so I can ensure the utmost care, consideration and safety measures are applied to each treatment. 

I recommend you read the *contraindications list* prior to booking an appointment, as some conditions of pregnancy, may not be suited to any bodywork.  If you're unsure, after reviewing the list, please don't hesitate to contact me for clarification.

Birth in Balance

38-40 weeks

What better way to approach your baby's 'birth'day, than with our blissful balancing, nurturing and birth prep treatment.

This treatment is recommended from 38 weeks and focuses on creating musculo-skeletal alignment and balance. A combination of massage, acupressure and reflexology helps to create a symmetrical bowl for baby to access the pelvic inlet, align and rotate through mid-pelvis and make space in outlet pelvis.

Acupressure points may then be further stimulated with moxibustion to help to ‘awaken’ the body for labour.

Although this treatment is more 'stimulating' in nature, it is also very calming and nurturing and therefore helps reduce adrenalin and increase oxytocin.

ALSO INCLUDED IS A BIRTH PREP KIT FOR HOME this contains moxa sticks, a PDF with specific spinning babies techniques, pelvic opening positions for labour and Guided Meditation and Birth Affirmation audio files.

If you are unable to attend a face-to-face appointment The birth kit can be purchased separately as an ‘at home’ treatment. This is for low-risk pregnancies recommended from 38+ weeks.

For additional information and guidance in creating alignment and balance, movement and gravity and to assist your baby's position and journey towards a spontaneous labour and birth, our Ten 2 Zen Ebook: can provide you with these additional skills and techniques.  Learn more
