At SHEcares, we understand that pregnancy is a transformative time. For some it marks the first ever transition into motherhood; for others it is an extension of their current parenting, adding extra pressure to their existing responsibility of looking after their other child or children.
Whether a seasoned pro or first timer, pregnancy can sometimes bring a lack of balance and harmony both physically, emotionally and psychologically. These experiences can be a normal part of pregnancy, but getting help to understand where they are coming from and learning methods to help support your pregnancy journey can be very beneficial.
Our awareness of the need for a holistic approach to pregnancy has led us to form a partnership with local Mindfulness coach and Reiki Practitioner, Liz Davies. Liz offers integrated treatments that aim to support you through any challenges you might be met with both during your pregnancy and after the birth of your baby. At SHEcares, we believe that these treatments will work hand-in-hand with the rest of your maternity care.
Mindfulness encourages a calmer experience of your pregnancy by binding your awareness to the present moment, while acknowledging and accepting the feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations you may be experiencing. As part of your treatment with Liz, you will be provided with tips and meditations that help you process the changes you are going through.
Reiki is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, a term used to describe a natural system to help bring about an improved sense of wellbeing. It can help to release blockages by restoring the flow of ‘ki’, or energy, which then allows your body to find the right path to heal and find balance again. This can help relieve any pain your body feels, physically or emotionally, during this special time in your life. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system and is absolutely safe to have whilst pregnant.
Liz works from a calm and comfortable space in Twickenham and you can find out more about her on our meet the team page.
