Hello, my name is Emma. I’m a registered midwife with over 20 years of experience working in the NHS. During this time I have worked in a busy hospital-based maternity unit and also in a stand-alone midwife-led birth centre as well as running a busy antenatal clinic in a local GP practice and providing postnatal care and feeding support to new mums. As a midwife I have a real passion for enabling women to have a positive and empowering experience of pregnancy and childbirth.
I also appreciate that you need time to discuss your thoughts, feelings and fears during your pregnancy with a supportive and experienced midwife in order that you can be fully prepared for this amazing life journey and to give you the confidence in your body that it is possible for childbirth to be a positive experience.
To enhance your journey through this natural life event I offer a range of complementary therapies such as aromatherapy, massage, reflexology and accupressure to provide a holistic approach to health in pregnancy and provide a safe alternative to the conventional care usually offered by the NHS.
At Embracing Natural Pregnancy I offer you the opportunity to see me in a non-medicalised environment. Clinics Located in Grantham, Lincolnshire and at 4 Brookbridge Court, Syston, Leicestershire, LE7 2JT. Treatments also available in the comfort of your own home.
I have completed a Diploma in Midwifery Complementary Therapies with Expectancy Ltd and, combined with my experience as a qualified midwife, I am able to offer individualised treatment packages for many common pregnancy conditions that you may experience such as;
Back and pelvic pain
Carpel tunnel syndrome
Heartburn and indigestion
Constipation and haemorrhoids
As well as general relaxation, relief of stress and anxiety and insomnia.
Prices for individual treatments start from £45
I also offer birth preparation classes and treatments to prepare you for labour, treatments to help stimulate the onset of labour when baby is overdue and also treatment through the use of moxibustion to encourage a breech or bottom first baby into a head down position.
As well as one off treatments for common pregnancy symptoms I also provide treatment packages designed to be used as a course of treatments. All of my pregnancy treatment packages include a series of treatment sessions designed to ease your symptoms or help prepare your body for the birth of your baby. The first session will involve a detailed consultation to discuss your symptoms, medical history and any previous pregnancies, and answer any questions or queries you may have. This will be followed by your tailor-made treatment which may include a combination of therapies such as massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure and advice regarding other natural remedies individually designed to best treat your individual and changing symptoms.
