I have seen the amazing effects reflexology can have on Mums postnatally, it is a wonderful treatment for recovery regardless of whether you have had a natural/straight forward birth or a traumatic one.
After the triumph of birth, you can be left feeling exhausted, tired, overwhelmed, sore and emotional. Your reproductive organs are gradually returning to their non pregnant state, which is understandably a time of significant emotional, physical, and hormonal change.
Your entire body and mind will appreciate reflexology with its many benefits of restoring, and re-balancing qualities, helping your body bounce back.
The benefits of postnatal reflexology are:
Emotional support, including easing anxiety and postnatal depression
Balancing the hormones
Easing breast feeding discomforts and encouraging lactation
Helping with digestive problems and constipation
Assisting recovery following an epidural/caesarian section
Perineal pain (to encourage tissue repair and blood flow)
