My infertility journey
I am a trained Fertility Reflexology, having struggled
myself with secondary infertility and going through IVF,
I have a deep and personal understanding of what
couples go through emotionally and physically when
unable to conceive. Using my own experience, have since
gone on to specialising in Fertility Reflexology. I am fully certified as a Fertility Reflexologist.
Infertility in both women and men can still be a very taboo subject. You will be surprised to learn that this challenge is faced more regularly than you would expect. Following my own experience, I truly believe that Fertility Reflexology can help aid couples who are struggling to conceive - I am lucky enough to now be a mother two wonderful girls.
After experiencing great success with my fertility clients I decided that I wanted to assist with the entire journey from conception to birth. I qualified in Maternity Reflexology to support the entire well-being knowing how much the body and mind goes through during pregnancy and I wanted to support mother and baby.
I have since completed my journey from conception to birth by being able to offer Baby and Toddler Reflex. This is a specifically adapted Reflexology technique to bring about a sense of calm and general well-being for both baby and parent.
What is Fertility Reflexology?
Fertility Reflexology is a gentle and non-invasive complementary therapy that works on the theory that reflex points for every part of the body are mapped out on the feet and hands. A Fertility Reflexologist applies gentle pressure to these reflex points, aiming to
restore balance and induce relaxation.
Infertility or sub-fertility is when a couple have been actively trying for a baby without using contraception for longer than 12 months (or 6 months if the woman is over 35) and they have not become pregnant. It is at this time when it is recommended to start fertility investigations with a doctor.
You may be interested to see how Fertility Reflexology can support you as you try to conceive. Whether you are early on in your journey to parenthood, or are already going through fertility investigations or treatment such as IVF, you may choose to use Fertility Reflexologist to help support you.
Why is it important to see a Fertility Reflexologist?
All reflexologists may learn about fertility and pregnancy within their initial training. However, because fertility is such a wide and complex subject, I have choose to taken further training and have experience working with fertility clients.
As a Fertility Reflexologists I belong to the Fertility Reflexology Network and have been involved in intensive Fertility Reflexology workshops, and I am experienced in supporting people with fertility issues and I am committed to on-going development of their fertility knowledge and skills.

Can Reflexology help me conceive?
There is no doubt that Reflexology can be an extremely relaxing experience and may help reduce stress which is often a key concern for people with fertility issues. And many people report anecdotally that they believe their reflexology treatments have contributed to them successfully conceiving.
Reflexology can help to balance and regulate your cycle and deepen your understanding of your ovulation symptoms.
