“I feel incredibly privileged to have been able to indulge in prenatal massage therapy with Michelle and I firmly believe that experience and her gentle, genuine caring nature helped me achieve a beautiful, natural and swift first labour at 35 years of age.
Throughout my pregnancy the time out I allowed myself and my body to slow down and relax with Michelle’s care was a beacon in the exhaustion and swelling limbs. It was something I thoroughly looked forward to and with the blessing of my partner became as ritualistic as my prenatal visits to the doctor.
As my due date neared I was adamant I would bring my baby into the world drug free and as calmly and beautifully as possible. However my due date came and went and I was then beginning to think of inducing and my birth options. At 40+2 I booked in with Michelle and our discussion around birthing, intervention, allowing the body and baby to take its natural course and my options during labour all calmed me just as much as the actual massage itself and I then went into the next phase of waiting for my baby with a new patient approach.
You absolutely need to take Michelle on the journey with you through your pregnancy and allow not only her gentle therapy relax and prepare you but also her genuine, passionate and professional approach to helping you have the best possible labour you can.” (Tamara)
