BORN TOGETHER


Born Together is a group of therapists and experts passionate about caring for families from the very beginning, helping them to grow and thrive. We started life at Born in Stoke Newington and we are now planting roots at The Well Garden, an oasis of calm and wellbeing near Hackney Downs where we can grow and evolve.

Our aim is to take pre and post natal care to the next level. For hopeful parents we offer fertility support with acupuncture, massage, chinese herbal medicine, aromatherapy, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, reflexology, nutrition and fitness.

These treatments can also help you throughout your pregnancy along with a variety of antenatal classes, pilates, yoga, and local doula access to help you prepare for birth confidently and calmly.

After your baby is born, we offer breastfeeding support, post natal doula support, support groups for mums & dads, baby yoga and massage (and for the parents too!), first aid for parents, cranio-sacral therapy for you and baby… the list is endless and that’s just us!

By joining Born Together you can become part of a local community at a similar stage in life. We all know how we thrive when we share ideas, worries and advice, and that’s never more important than when you’re trying for, growing, and raising a family.
