Our pregnancy massage is run by Catherine Leavett. She specialises in both pregnancy and post-natal massages.
From early on, Catherine was drawn to the world of massage. After giving birth to two children and personally feeling the physical effects it had on her body, she chose to focus on Pregnancy and Post Natal massage.
With a strong commitment to assisting women during this pivotal phase, Catherine has pursued extensive training to guarantee they benefit from a high level of care.

On booking your initial appointment, you will receive a booking confirmation email with links to complete your patient intake forms before your appointment.
Before the session you will be asked to complete a Pre-screening form. This allows us to obtain your medical details and screen you before you have your appointment. During your session we will have a short consultation to better understand why you have chosen to have a massage.
The massage will then take place in the side lying position and you will be supported by pillows so that you and your bump feel comfortable.
We will position you on a comfy massage table facing down into a face cradle. If this is not comfortable for you due to breastfeeding or c-section scar, we can perform the massage in the side lying position. Once we have worked over your back we will turn you over and work on your front including your abdomen (if this is something you are comfortable with).
