The Gentle Birth Method Launches at Antara Spa
The Gentle Birth Method is now available at the Antara Spa situated in The Chelsea Club in Fulham. This unique holistic antenatal programme has become a firm favourite amongst celebrity mothers such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson and Madonna. Becoming pregnant is a wonderful experience but one that can affect women in different ways. It is the start of an amazing journey that will hopefully lead to the birth of a beautiful baby, however not every pregnant mother has an easy 9 months. There is a way to approach your pregnancy that will prepare you for an enjoyable and gentle birth experience.
The Gentle Birth Method was devised by childbirth guru Dr Gowri Motha as a pregnancy programme combining different treatments and therapies that offer an alternative to conventional antenatal programmes. The techniques used have proved to be extremely effective in treating gynaecological problems, relieving stress and have also been used by couples for fertility support. They include:
Reflexology: to help the body detoxify and reduce symptoms such as nausea, pelvic congestion, bloating and constipation.
Creative healing: used to specifically feed, energise, strengthen organs and remove toxic waste from the body.
Massage: to help improve placental function, regulate foetal growth, relax a tight pelvis and relieve back pain.
Self-hypnosis and visualisation: to help increase relaxation and decrease stress, so the mother-to-be can deal and resolve fears and aid physical changes during pregnancy.
Exercise and diet: to help lead to a level of fitness essential for giving birth.
The Gentle Birth Method is tailored to individual needs, and adapted through every stage of the pregnancy, supporting mothers-to-be in making the correct decisions and choices of how to approach and plan their pregnancy and birth process.
Antara Spa, a holistic spa with Oriental, Ayurvedic and European influences, is the perfect setting for the practice of the ‘Gentle Birth Method’ programme.
