Pregnancy and Post-natal Care

We moved to Milton Keynes when I was 3 months pregnant. I was grateful to be closer to the office as I didn’t just want to serve the people of Milton Keynes, I also wanted to experience and live in this great city. There was lots to be excited about; all of the green spaces and parks with which to play with our kids and preparing for the birth of our second child.  

I knew I wanted a home birth, to stay fit during my pregnancy and that my chiropractic adjustments were important. I wanted to add massage therapy into my self care routine and I wondered what my options were for a doula and a birth photographer. Where did I need to go for hypnobirthing? Who was my lactation specialist if I had trouble breastfeeding? I found a great yoga class (Yogabellies) and would ask for recommendations from our instructor and some of the other mums. It turns out we were all looking for the same thing. Excellent practitioners to help support us during our pregnancy and postpartum periods. I wished my yoga teacher knew a fabulous massage therapist, and she could recommend breastfeeding support, and we could all have a network of people to refer to. That’s how this list came about. 

Now I know that I am a Chiropractor who has a special interest in pregnancy and pediatric care, however; my research in finding these ladies came about for purely selfish reasons as I wanted to know where to find this support when I was pregnant. And now I want to be able to refer my clients to other fabulous people. So please use this list of resources to help with your pregnancy. And if you know of someone who should be added, please let me know and I will update it. Xx
