This directory is active but not all of the maternity practitioners are listed as they have not all created new entries on this site. So if you don't find someone in your area, please email us to check.
The members of this maternity practitioner register are professionals who have attended the relevant Wellmother courses, been assessed for their practical abilities, completed the subsequent coursework to the required standard, and have chosen to be included here. Shiatsu practitioners complete a foundation course and 3 x 4 day modules, Massage therapists 4 day Pregnancy massage course (with options for postnatal and labour modules) and Midwives and doulas a 6 day course.
Note listings have to be approved by the site, so please only create a listing if you have had your work validated by Wellmother and received the relevant diplomas/certificates. To create a listing you need to have first set up an account on the site.
If there is no-one in your region listed, it may be that we can refer you to someone who has chosen not to be listed here, is still in the process of completing their coursework or has done some study but not completed all the modules.

Suzanne is the founder of Wellmother but as well as teaching on all the courses she also works with individual clients, both male and female, from her clinic in Bristol and can offer home visits in the Bristol area, or sometimes sessions when she is teaching in different locations. She also offers home or email appointments/skype consultations. Although she works with clients at all stages of their lives, she specialises in working with women’s health from preconception through to the menopause and beyond, as well as integrating partners and babies through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
She works with both massage and shiatsu, or a combination of the two, depending on your preference.

I offer ante-natal and post-natal massage therapy in the comfort of your own home; sensitive treatments that are tailored to your specific needs. I can also give advice to your birthing partner on massage during labour. Please don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions relating to your treatment.
I visit South West and West London, and Surrey.
Working with women and couples using massage, reflexology, reiki, EFT and guided imagery to help re-connect and align body, mind and spirit for both mamas and their baby/babies.
As specialist in women's health I support clients; experiencing fertility challenges, miscarriage, early pregnancy concerns, complicated pregnancies, post natal and into menopause.
Receiving massage treatments throughout pregnancy is a wonderful way to nurture your body as well as your baby.
Each treatment is adapted to address any specific issues you might have, so that every session is uniquely tailored to your needs. I use a combination of massage techniques, relaxation, acupressure points and simple exercises to create a supportive, caring and highly enjoyable session for you and your baby.
Nicola has been working with Pre and Postnatal women in Cardiff for nearly 7 years.
Massage for fertility, pregnancy and postnatal.
I have been working with pregnant women for over 15 years and I learn more from them and am inspired by them daily. I aim to help pregnant women to feel comfortable and relaxed in pregnancy and to connect to their growing baby. I work with couples to help them to find ways to support each other during pregnancy and labour. My massage helps to ease aches and pains common in pregnancy. and provides space for sharing questions and anxieties. Women feel cared for and soothed through the massage, and resourced for their labour.
Postnatal massage is important for replenishing the energy spent during labour and in caring for a new born. I hope to reassure women and to allow them time to relax and recuperate. The postanatal period can be a challenging time, and I provide a safe and comforting space for women to express themselves or debrief their labour. The massage soothes tired muscles and brings strength and resilience.
I offer Closing the Bones ceremonies too - these ceremonies which include some massage and rocking and wrapping the pelvis in cloth originated in Equador and have been gifted to us in the West. The ceremonies honour the uterus from menstruation, pregnancy, postnatal to menopause and beyond. Women often feel the ceremony helps them to cope with past traumas, to recognise closure as they move through their life, or to celebrate the joy their uterus has brought them,
I am a Birth Doula and a Postnatal Doula too, working with families to help them to have the most positive birth and postnatal times.
