We use a specially designed pregnancy mattress which allows you to lie in all positions safely and comfortably. Be sure to let us know if you will require one for your treatment.

It is ideal to receive regular treatment during the second and third trimester and especially in the weeks leading up to your labour to help you to feel most comfortable, improve your energy levels and maintain quality sleep.
