Genesis Birth and Beyond

As a doula I walk alongside of you and help you be feel safe and empowered. Everything from assisting with birth plans, relaxations, massage during labour and many hints and tips during labour all add to my being able to make your birth a safe experience. All clients receive the use of my birth pool, 24/7 support as we explore your birth choices.
Antenatal classes are run either in groups or on a one-to-one basis in the comfort of your home or mine. Topics covered –

Physiology of birth
Stages of labour
Coping skills in labour
Positions, Breathing and Relaxing
Early days

Pregnancy massage has many benefits including better sleep, better blood flow between mother and baby, lymphatic drainage, and of course aides with the aches and niggles of pregnancy. Massages include deep tissue, shiatsu and Swedish massage and I work around your needs avoiding certain pressure points.

The Smile Group

The SMILE Group was co-founded by Natalie Nuttall and Ruth Eglin in 2011 after they both experienced PND and felt passionate about the need for parents to benefit from sustained peer support at a local level.

When we set The SMILE Group up we wanted it to be a place where families can relax and not feel judged or intimidated in any way. The group is a drop-in format and there is no pressure to attend regularly.

We invite parents to chat, drink tea and there is always a welcoming smile and an open door. We also enable mums and dads to indulge in valuable ‘me’ time with sample complementary therapy treatments to bring a sense of wellbeing.

See the Smile Group’s website for information on the weekly meet ups in Macclesfield, Congleton and Sandbach.
