37-40+ Weeks

Birth In Balance Treatment

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

This treatment is recommended from 37 weeks, particularly if aiming for a VBAC.

Beginning with an individually tailored massage treatment to assess any structural and muscular imbalances. Applying trigger point therapy and acupressure, helps to create a symmetrical bowl for baby to access the pelvic inlet, align well in the mid-pelvis and start to efface the cervix, continuing balanced through the pelvic outlet.

Acupressure points are stimulated further with moxibustion to begin to prime the body for labour. Labour positions most appropriate for your pelvic space are also discussed; for those aiming for an active labour and birth.

Although the nature of this treatment is to stimulate the uterus and cervix, it is also calming and nurturing and therefore reduces adrenalin and helps to increase the release of oxytocin which peaks closer to 40 weeks.
