Michaela is a qualified birth doula (recognized member of Doula UK) who offers emotional and practical support to a woman (or couple) through pregnancy, childbirth and the early post-natal period.
Pregnancy massage treatments cost £40 for 1 hour and are tailored to your needs as a pregnant woman. The massage takes place on a wide and comfortable massage couch, fixed at a lower level than usual, so that it is easier for you to get on and off. You will lie on your side, with your head resting on a pillow, and then use as many pillows and cushions as necessary to support you and your bump and make you as comfortable as possible. You will be covered by towels and only the parts of your body that are being massaged will be exposed.
Gift vouchers are available, as are loyalty discounts (such as pay for 5 massages and get the 6th one free)

‘Melody Robinson from All things Birth & Beyond was absolutely fantastic for me. I’m now 34 weeks pregnant but when I was around the same as you, I had a 1:1 session with Mel who answered all things feeding related for me!! She offers Infant Feeding Support which are honestly the best thing I think I’ve done my whole pregnancy! She reassured all my nerves so much and offered so many tips and advice! ‘
