Complementary care in pregnancy and the postnatal period
Our philosophy at the Active Birth Centre is to offer you comprehensive care throughout your journey from conception to your baby’s first steps, so we have a varied and expert team of therapists, each highly trained and experienced in providing care during pregnancy, after birth, and for babies.
Relaxation, pain relief and preparation for birth
Complementary care offers you several choices if you need support or relief from discomfort, and can be used to boost your energy and wellbeing. You may also turn to a therapist if you have issues such as back pain or nausea, and to offer assistance if your baby is overdue or in breech presentation. When orthodox medical treatments are required, either in pregnancy or during labour, complementary treatments can be used alongside them.
Choosing a therapist for pregnancy and beyond
We have a long tradition of supporting women through pregnancy and the postnatal period. Each therapist is available to contact directly by phone or email for queries or appointments – their details are on their individual pages. We recommend that you always discuss complementary treatment with your midwife or doctor.
