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, and fitness.
These treatments can also help you throughout your pregnancy along with a variety of antenatal classes, 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 classes, doula support, support groups for mums & dads, baby yoga and massage (and for the parents too!)
