Your Body, Your Baby: an event created by a group of like-minded, small local businesses, passionate about informing parents-to-be about holistic approaches that empower them to achieve the positive pregnancy and birth experience that they want and deserve. Our collective ethos is to provide a powerful opportunity to support women in moving towards living the life they want to lead through exploring various alternative approaches.

Join Doula-La, Hand in Hand Therapies, Lime Thistle and Zensory Therapies on Sunday 7th October from 12-4pm at Zensory’s studio in Falkirk (167 High Street, FK1 1DU) to chat in an informal & relaxed environment about the various therapies and services available to you and the deep internal and external benefits they could have in your life.

Throughout the event, each business will showcase how they can help to guide and nurture you through your own unique journey.

women with information and care, tailored to their own circumstances, empowering them to achieve the type of birth they want and deserve.

2.15-2.35 Lime Thistle on relaxing and unwinding your body and mind, allowing you to rediscover that place of calm that you’d forgotten existed within you

3-3.35 Zensory Therapies on harnessing your own energy to raise your vibration through enabling you to tap into the tools that already exist inside of you, allowing you and your partner to have the most positive and empowering pregnancy and birth experience.

This event is not ticketed. You can come & go as you please or just join for certain sections or talks. A first come first serve approach will be used if it’s needed.

We are absolutely delighted to be bringing this event to you. The support and encouragement we receive from new and existing clients is quite simply, breathtaking. We can’t wait to meet you.

Ch-ch-changes…turn and face the strange! (that’s me!)

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

I’ve spend the last few weeks working out logistics in my head of where I want my business to go. Being a mum of two, I am a logistics expert so this should be a breeze!

The business recently celebrated it’s first birthday. I’m delighted with how far it has come I feel it needs pushed to the next level. Finding a suitable venue to hold all my classes from has been a challenge. Hypnobirthing workshops run over two days and I ideally wanted a place I could base myself from. And so I’m very excited that as from August, I’ll be running all of my classes from Zensory on Falkirk High Street.

As well as continuing to offer hypnobirthing and relaxation in pregnancy, I’ve added a new one-off class called The Positive Birth Workshop. It’s important to me to offer a variety of classes to suit different women. I understand that isn’t always possible to fit a full hypnobirthing workshop in. Whether it’s other children, work or for financial reasons, it doesn’t always work out. The Positive Birth Workshop looks to support these women and introduce them to viewing birth in a positive way. Have a look at the page for more details.

You can now book all of my classes online! I’m really glad to add this feature to the website to make it easy for you book. I have classes running up to December.

Check out all my classes here! Book online

Hypnotherapy – over the coming months I will be introducing hypnotherapy sessions. I’m really excited about this as I know I am going to be able to reach a lot more people by increasing the services I offer. In line with this, I am rebranding to become Hand in Hand Therapies so do keep watching for that being integrated over the coming weeks.

My why for doing all of this?

Becoming a mum has changed me profoundly. My birth experiences inspired me to want to pass on my knowledge to other women. To let them know just how freaking powerful they are, that they have choices and that they have a voice. That birth is worth preparing for and that I can teach valuable skills for life. There is something about supporting women to realise just how powerful they are. It definitely feels like a calling. And I know that that is growing all the time! Exciting stuff!

Finally, one of my goals was to collaborate with other businesses.

Enter Maria Hunter! Maria is an excellent holistic therapist based in Falkirk at Zensory therapies. We met and instantly felt that there was work we could do together. Our businesses compliment each other really well. Maria offers massage services and she has felt a energetic pull towards focusing on pregnant and postnatal women. She is also adding Reiki to her repertoire and she has other fantastic ideas for moving forward which I can’t wait to follow! We’ll also be teaming up to offer bespoke workshops and Maria has plans to host support groups too.

It always leaves me feeling excited and super motivated after I speak with Maria and I’m really grateful to be sharing her treatment room from next month.

Maria is so tuned into women’s needs and I highly recommend a visit to her. Visit her awesome website here. www.zensorytherapies.co.uk

I look forward to sharing more over the coming weeks!

Welcoming Neal’s Yard Remedies to the business – here’s my why!

When I discovered hypnobirthing, it was the start of my journey of changing my perspective on birth and in fact in many things in life! I’m so much more aware of how I think, why I have certain thoughts and it’s made a huge difference to the thoughts I now have, and how I am as a mum. It’s by far the best discovery I’ve made! It helped me to make sense of a lot of things I wondered about.

I care deeply about how women think about their birth experience. I’ve been so fortunate to meet amazing professionals from hypnobirthng and other businesses, and the fantastic mums who wanted to take control of their birth. I really can’t underestimate the impact this has beyond birth!

I care deeply about how you feel on the inside, how it impacts you before your baby arrives and after.

We are bombarded with messages from all angles every day. It can be overwhelming at times! As well as what messages we tell our internal selves, I also care deeply about what we use on the outside, our bodies. It matters to me that the products I use on my family don’t contain nasty chemicals, it matters that companies are upfront and ethical about their processes and practices. Doing that works in harmony with how I feel in the inside too!

I’ve always been a strong supporter of ethical businesses.
When I was a child, I remember sitting in the bathroom, with my parents telephone and the door locked. I would get out all of our shampoos, shower gels and any other products we had and look up the customer helpline. Then I’d phone them up to see if they tested their products on animals. This was pre-internet so there was no Google to look up! Even now, it can be difficult to find out and with so many companies being part of a chain, us as consumers appreciate clear, easy to find honest info about the products we use.

This is why I’ve decided to offer NYR Organics to my clients as an independent consultant. I understand how important it is to ensure that your family use safe, ethical products. NYRO don’t use any nasties, are organic, and never test on animals.

I initially looked into Neal’s Yard Remedies to use for my family and to add products to my gift bags for my mums. I decided to become an independent consultant so that I have easy access to the products and can offer mums the full range .

I also offer my services in a pampering setting. I’m thinking along the lines of pampering parties, baby showers, and any other way you can think of! I can pop along with the catalogue, do a mini facial to showcase the products, and also provide you with some tips and mindset exercises for pregnancy and childbirth! And if you’re not expecting, I have plenty of mindset exercises which can help you de-stress from any situation! Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.
