Could Reflexology lead to an easier labour?

Alison McDermott

Putting time aside for regular reflexology treatments during your pregnancy enables you to nurture yourself and your baby developing inside you, it may even result in an easier labour.

A research study carried out in 1992 showed that a group of first time mums who received 10 reflexology treatments leading up to the birth of their babies had an average labour time of 5-6 hours. The textbook average should be 16-24 hours, so you can see what an amazing difference reflexology made! It was also noted that the group needed far less pain relief during labour too.

Alison McDermott has been specialising in maternity reflexology for over ten years. The treatment has many fabulous benefits and it can help to alleviate some of the common discomforts during all stages of pregnancy.
