Here are some preliminary statistics to show how my pregnancy reflexology at term or post dates might influence the onset of labour.
I’m actually stunned at the results! Out of a total of 16 women, 9 went into labour within 72 hours post-reflexology. 2 needed to be induced and I have no results for the remaining 5. That’s over 56% success rate (even without the 5 I’ve not heard from). Just imagine…women being given the choice to go for a session or two of Reflexology before chemical Induction on the NHS…..it would enable them to relax and might just mean they go into labour – the numbers speak for themselves!
I developed Down to Earth Birth classes in response to the lack of practical, common-sense childbirth preparation classes for couples in the area of South Leicestershire where I worked as a community midwife. These short 3 hour classes have since developed into a single, full-day workshop, offering evidence-based fun and interactive activities for expectant mums and their birth partner. The course follows the Royal College of Midwives accredited training course with The Real Birth Company.
