I had regular reflexology massages throughout my pregnancy and they were incredible. They helped my swollen feet immensely, they were extremely relaxing and helped me to have a fantastic nights sleep on the day of the treatment (which is rare in pregnancy). Katy’s experience as a midwife is so reassuring and everything is catered for you being pregnant from the oils to the massage bed. I highly recommend Buttercup Maternity Therapies, when my body was at is most tested is was such an amazing relief for aches and pains and I always knew I was in safe hands and everything was safe for my pregnancy. I give 5 stars ⭐️
Katy is such a friendly midwife with so much knowledge around alternative therapies in pregnancy. My baby was breech throughout my pregnancy so at 35 weeks Katy discussed using moxibustion. As a midwife myself I did research on using moxibustion and found a lot of positive outcomes. When using the sticks (moxibustion) my baby was very active and I felt as if she was trying to turn. At our 37 week scan the baby had turned and we were delighted! I highly recommend trying them.
I am lucky enough to consider Katy a colleague and friend and visited her today for some reflexology at her beautiful buttercup clinic. As many pregnant women know you can’t have much in the way of massage or TLC but Katy’s reflexology was so calming and I came away feeling I had had a spa break! She used her knowledge and expertise to tailor the experience to me and my baby and I knew I could fully trust her. She is so professional and gentle and I cannot recommend her enough. She explained the different uses of oils and how they could help me to try and avoid an induction. 🤞🏻 I am lucky not to have many complaints in my pregnancy but if I did I would definitely trust Katy to address them holistically and naturally! thanks Katy 😘 xx
