Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from aromatic plants, trees and fruits to enhance health and restore a feeling of wellbeing. Each essential oil has differing therapeutic properties that improve the body’s natural functioning and provide relief from all kinds of symptoms associated with pregnancy.
During a 60mins Aromatherapy for Labour session booked in the comfort of your own home, Carole will help you to choose from a range of essential oils that are safe to use in pregnancy, she will then carefully mix your chosen blend of essential oils, give you advice on how to use the oils to get maximum benefit and finish the session with a relaxing leg/foot or hand/arm massage.
The Aromatherapy for Labour session is also available to book as a 30mins appointment at Stepping Hill Hospital Stockport if you just want oil blends to use during for Labour.
Aromatherapy can be particularly useful at the end of pregnancy to help get labour started and also helpful during labour as a coping strategy to help with relaxation.
Please see my prices section for information about costs of sessions and also individual blends that are available to purchase.
