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.

Long Business Description:

Pregnancy massage is a soothing and relaxing treatment. A side lying position is used to perform gentle massage movements to warm the muscles and induce a feeling of well being. This is followed by deeper movements to reduce areas of tension in the back, lower and upper legs and arms. The benefit of pregnancy massage includes a sense of nurturing, relaxation, boost to the immune system, release of tension, soreness and stiffness in the joints and aids digestion.

Long Business Description:

I 've been a qualified holistic massage practitioner since 1997 and trained with the wonderful Well Mother in Pregnancy and Postnatal massage in about 2004 which then led me to my doula work, so all my work is now maternity based. My massage treatments are a mix of oil based massage inc some reflexology and shiatsu techniques [using aromatherapy oils suitable for pregnancy or postnatal where appropriate] I love being able to ease some pregnancy related problems with deep tissue massage and shiatsu energy work for clients. I find the shiatsu really helpful and emotionally balancing and the oil massage is relaxing and nurturing on a more physical level. I'm based in North London and work from my home in Islington and at the Active birth Centre therapy clinic
