My Background and offerings

My Name is Claire Batchelor (formerly of the Midwifery Centre in Hare Hatch, Nr Maidenhead). I have a little boy called Max and understand the trials and tribulations of parenthood all to well!

I qualified as a midwife in 1999 gaining a diploma in midwifery and became interested in alternative therapies whilst a student midwife. The first therapy I trained in was Indian Head massage and enjoyed it so much (and saw the benefits), that I carried on to study further courses including Baby Massage.

By combining my midwifery skills, knowledge and experience, I am able to offer specialised therapies in a unique and holistic way, whilst tailoring each treatment to your individual need. Although my main focus is maternity therapies, I am also happy to offer normal therapies. Prices for these are available upon request. Please contact me for more information.

Testimonials:

"The therapy was well explained - each reflex point was talked through and how it affects the body was explained. Claire's therapy was the best reflexology I have ever had- so smooth, relaxing and just the right pressure. Her technique is fabulous. I left the session completely relaxed and calm and felt very reassured as Claire explained fully what may happen next as I may go in to full labour!"

"I am so glad i booked the session. Perhaps the caring attitude and calmness helped my body to let go and have my baby who was 9 days overdue. Thankyou Claire".
