Navigating pregnancy is an extraordinary journey filled with both joy and challenges. Amidst the excitement, it's not unusual to have moments when additional support is needed. Reflexology is a valuable option to enhance overall wellbeing both during this transformative period and after giving birth.

Evidence supports the role of reflexology in pregnancy and the postnatal period. Studies indicate its potential to reduce pain during labour, enhance sleep quality, and alleviate anxiety associated with pregnancy-related conditions.
