Fertility and Pregnancy Reflexology

Reflexology is a safe and practical therapy for pregnant women and pregnant women to be. It can be safely used throughout pregnancy too. Fertility and Pregnancy Reflexology may help to energise and balance, aiding a healthier pregnancy.

Many couples have found it very helpful to receive reflexology treatments when dealing the stress and emotional upheavals linked with assisted conception methods. Getting pregnant is not as easy for some couples as it is for others. Fertility reflexology is excellent for everyone before, during and after assisted conception (IVF, IUI etc.) or even when doctors can find no specific or identifiable medical problem and you and your partner therefore have ‘unexplained’ infertility. The number of treatments required will vary upon individual circumstances, and this will be discussed with you at the time of your first appointment. You will also be given a lot of additional advice to ensure that you increase your chances of getting pregnant and staying pregnant. Reflexology is a great way to ensure that your body is at its best and ready for the forthcoming month and emotionally recharging you too. For an even better chance, it would be good if your partner has reflexology too for relaxation and to take the stress out of the situation.

Tips for helping you to Conceive

Know your body's fertile time
Women don't all ovulate at the same time, so you need to check for signs, such as changes in your cervical fluid. When cervical mucus is produced in greater quantities and when it is stretchy in texture, it means you are ovulating and therefore are at your most fertile.

Take the pressure off with more, not less sex
Whilst you may know your fertile time only having sex around this time can put pressure on your relationship and remove the fun and spontaneity, sex at other times can bring. Enjoy love making throughout the month and aim for sex at least three times a week and you’ll be making sure that you are covering your fertile time. Healthy sperm will last three to five days inside a woman but the egg will only last for 12 to 24 hours, so regular sex will ensure there is a constant sperm supply in the fallopian tube for when the egg is released without you absolutely watching the clock.
