Fertility Pregnancy and Postpartum Care

It has been estimated that approx 30% of women who have been unsuccessful in conceiving eventually conceive after a succession of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ treatments. Treatments generally consist of massage, diet and lifestyle modifications, herbal therapies to enhance fertility. Once the uterus is in its optimal position, there is improved haemodynamics and homeostasis to support and enhance fertility. When including the partner in the process, we find fertility is increased! After all, men need this work as much as women do.

Receiving the Maya Abdominal Massage throughout pregnancy can bring both relief and support to a growing uterus, as well as other discomforts sometimes experienced throughout the different trimesters. By continuing massage we are encouraging the stretching ligaments as well as soothing the indigestion, which so often can accompany pregnancy. Maya Abdominal Therapy is not recommended before 20 weeks of pregnancy.

It has been observed that some women who have been receiving massage throughout pregnancy have a smoother labour, and a quicker second stage.

After 6 weeks post partum, the new mother can receive a full Maya Abdominal Massage (only if delivery was normal without complications) This supports the uterus and other organs returning to optimum position.

Untold numbers of Caesarean births could be prevented with this simple, safe, easy to learn massage technique. Our practitioners use this to prevent the need for a C-section. By strengthening and toning the uterus, ligaments and other pelvic organs, the massage helps to place and maintain the uterus in her optimal position for giving birth. Well being of the mother and baby are improved as they prepare for labour and delivery. For women who have had a C-section, this technique is beneficial for breaking up scar tissue in the same way it works for women who have had hysterectomies.
