Shiatsu can assist women hopeful of conceiving, either through IVF or without assistance, throughout the trimesters of pregnancy, during labour and whilst recovering from all types of birth. 

In pregnancy, the shiatsu treatments support the changes that each trimester brings and can alleviate the physical and emotional discomforts associated with the changes of pregnancy.  Shiatsu nurtures both the mother and the baby throughout the entire cycle of pregnancy, helping mother and baby bond as well as during the physical and emotional transition of welcoming a new child into life, playing a significant role in supporting women during labour.

In addition, shiatsu can assist in alleviating backache, insomnia, breathlessness, anxiety as well as general discomfort and pain.

Shiatsu supports women throughout their pregnancy experience and offers them increased feelings of wellbeing and comfort.
