Complementary Birth
 

Complementary therapies can be used to enhance your pregnancy and birth experience. Aromatherapy and massage are used to assist with relaxation and minor ailments of pregnancy whilst moxibustion can help to turn a breech baby into the head down position. Complementary Birth offers a wide range of treatments which can improve health and wellbeing to promote the best possible outcome.

Please note complementary therapies can be very powerful and are not safe for everyone. If you have any medical condition or pregnancy complication requiring medication or regular medical check-ups, it is wise to check with your midwife or doctor before using any complementary therapies or natural remedies.

Always inform your midwife or doctor if you're receiving complementary therapies during pregnancy or breastfeeding, or if you are using aromatherapy oils, herbs, homeopathic or Bach flower remedies at home during pregnancy or want to use them in labour.

Moxibustion
Moxibustion is part of traditional Chinese medicine which utilises the power of the bladder meridian in order to turn a breech baby (bottom down) to head down. The method is based on acupressure points which are situated within energy lines (meridians). Moxibustion's success rate means that you may not need to undergo an ECV which involves an obstetrician manually turning your baby into the heard down position. Moxibustion is none evasive and simple.

Complementary Birth will teach you how the method works and demonstrate the correct usage of the mugwort candles in order to turn your baby. Moxibustion has been shown to have a success rate on average between 66% and 90% (Cardini et al 1991, 1993, 1998, 2005).

We can also offer Hypnotherapy to assist baby to achieve and maintain a head down position

Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment, using the power of essential oils, balancing the whole person, soothing and relaxing stressful lifestyles and optimising health and wellbeing

Oils fall into three categories, stimulating, balancing and relaxing. Aromatherapy has many benefits during pregnancy and childbirth, enhancing your feelings of wellbeing.

All essential oils should be used with caution during pregnancy. DO NOT use any essential oils before you have consulted with a registered Health Professional for advice.

At Complementary Birth we will assess your needs and develop a programme especially for you utilising a blend of oils personalised to your needs. These oils will be safe for you to use during your pregnancy.

We can also teach your partner massage techniques that can be used during labour to enhance your experience and relax your body and mind.
