Easing ailments during pregnancy
During pregnancy, reflexology has been shown to be a great help at easing the nasty niggles that mums-to-be suffer. It’s believed to help balance the hormonal and emotional rollercoaster that pregnancy creates and can ease anxiety symptoms. Alongside the emotional benefits, it can also help with many of the physical effects of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, digestive problems, heartburn, anaemia and general aches and pains
Encouraging natural labour
Reflexology is also commonly used to help bring on a natural labour in babies reluctant to enter the world. It should only work when baby is ready and not before. In mums-to-be looking to avoid medical interventions, this could be worth a try once the hospital bag is packed and ready to go.
