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. Many practitioners now offer on line sessions, so if you don’t find someone local you can still probably work with someone trained with Wellmother, including myself, Suzanne Yates.

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.


Ce registre est actif mais pas tous les praticiens ont fait le transfert du vieux site : donc si vous ne trouvez pas un praticien, envoyez nous un email pour savoir si’il y a quelqun dans votre region.

Les membres de ce registre sont des professionnels qui ont participé au stage de Wellmother et passe l’aspect pratique et théorique et qui ont aussi choisi d’être mis ici.


Das Verzeichnis wird gerade noch von der alten Website übertragen und wird in einigen Wochen aktualisiert zur Verfügung stehen: wir bitten um Geduld in dieser Übergangsphase.

Alle, die in diesem Verzeichnis aufgeführt sind, sind professionelle ExpertInnen. Sie haben die relevanten Wellmother Kurse besucht, ihre praktischen Fähigkeiten wurden überprüft, sie haben die erforderlichen schriftlichen Arbeiten fertig gestellt und sie sind auf eigenen Wunsch in diesem Verzeichnis aufgeführt.

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.

Long Business Description:

The focus of my work so far has led me down a route of massages that people can really feel making a difference during and after the massage session. Through focused work on relaxing the body the mind will follow and many clients feel deeply relaxed, calm and reinvigorated this is helpful to first time mothers as well as mothers who already have children. I also offer sessions where partners can be involved which can be very useful through pregnancy and during birth. Please see my website for more details or call for a chat about your individual requirements. Best wishes, Amy

Kate Codrington Massage
Address: WD19 4FE
Personal Name: Kate Codrington
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Women come for pregnancy and postnatal massage for all kinds of reasons: to ease aches and pains, to get some precious ‘me time’, to explore their feelings about pregnancy and their changing body, to prepare for birth and to nourish themselves after their baby has arrived. Working from my home near to Bushey station, I use a variety of approaches including abdominal-sacral massage, Biodynamic, rebozo, energy work, shiatsu, womb massage and conventional massage to create a safe space where women can drop into themselves and let go of what no longer serves them.

I am on sabbatical 2nd November 2017 - 15th May 2018 but a list of recommended local therapists can be found on my homepage.

Personal Name: Deborah Donohoe
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Working with women and families has always been my focus, initially starting out as a nurse and then a midwife for 12 years. For the past 16 years I have been supporting women and men in their muscluo-skeletal health through massage therapy and structural alignment. I have found touch to be a vital part in everyday health and especially during pregnancy and labour, it frees the body from stress and tension of muscular tightness which can cause misalignment in the skeletal system, as such good alignment assists with more efficient labour and delivery of the baby. Massage allows a restoration of body , mind and emotions, it encourages health and wholeness, and empowers the person to take an active part in their wellbeing. I teach 'massage for couple's' courses showing you how techniques can be helpful during labour. Every session, whether teaching or treatment, is tailor made for your needs and I travel to your home so you can continue resting after the treatment is finnished.
