Claire specialises in massage in pregnancy following training with Wellmother and Suzanne Yates in 2006, 2009 and in Massage for Labour in 2012. In September Claire will also register as a midwife, with a BSc (Hons) in Midwifery from the University of the West of England.
Claire’s deep interest in bodywork that supports the progression of pregnancy, labour and birth has been encouraged by Suzanne’s work, her own water births at home and now her upcoming professional responsibility in supporting women and their families at this significant time. This passion has led to a continued exploration of massage as a useful holistic tool for coping with the deep physiological, psychological, psychosocial and environmental factors of pregnancy and birth experiences. Claire enthusiastically utilises her wealth of traditional massage experience and knowledge of pregnancy to tailor make a massage unique to you and your changing needs. Claire also offers massage sessions for you and your partner to prepare and support you both in using massage at the end of pregnancy and during labour and birth.
