There are many women, when baby is overdue who will literally resort to anything to induce the baby and looking at complimentary therapies seems to be an option. As a reflexologist with over 15 years of experience, I know that many babies have been born within hours following one of my Pregnancy Reflexology sessions. Mums are naturally overjoyed that their baby has finally arrived and although I share their delight, it always crosses my mind that reflexology is a therapy that these expectant mums could have been enjoying throughout the whole term of their pregnancy as a preparation for the birth.
Natural Solutions To Help Physical, Emotional and Mental Changes
Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life with the anticipation of the impending joy that the birth will bring, but the emotional, physical and mental changes can be tough on women and many experience uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms including fatigue, cramping, constipation and water retention. Many women turn to natural solutions including reflexology to help alleviate some of the symptoms, as few would resort to medication, which could be harmful to the growing foetus.
Reflexology – Helping Expectant Mothers Adjust To Hormonal Changes
Reflexology aims at bringing balance and harmony to the body and can help your body adjust to the major hormonal changes that it is experiencing, being one of the most relaxing therapies you can have during pregnancy. It is completely safe and uses various manual techniques to access and affect the whole body through the feet and regular treatments will provide you with the physical, emotional and mental support you need.
Benefits of Reflexology During Pregnancy

Reflexology Is Beneficial Throughout Pregnancy
So, don’t just wait for the reflex on the foot to be pressed to start labour, as baby will only arrive when it is ready and feels it is safe to do so. Think of yourself and your baby and enjoy reflexology throughout your pregnancy so that you are more relaxed and less anxious for when this very special moment of your life arrives. Regular reflexology could make you feel better and happier and will provide a nurturing and comforting environment for not only you as a mother, but your baby too.
