 Baby Bowen is suitable from early newborn days onwards with its gentle healing, calming effect helping your baby's adjustment to his new world.

Baby Bowen can gently assist post birth recovery and works through relaxing muscles, fascia & nervous system .
The way your baby is born can create muscle tension, which can sometimes affect nerves impacting on a variety of body functions including digestion, feeding etc.

Muscle tension around the mouth, neck or jaw area can affect breastfeeding latch, sometimes weight gain and contribute to an unsettled or fussy baby
If your baby was born by Caesarean, had instrument assisted birth or labour that was quite fast or long, he may well benefit greatly from Bowen in adjusting to life after birth.

Breastfeeding in Hot Weather

on Monday, 26 December 2011.

Baby its hot out there ..."Does my breastfeed baby need water ?" is a common question asked by many mothers.

Breastfed babies under 6 months do not need extra fluids in hot weather as they can usually get all they need provided they have easy access to the breast whenever they need. Breastmilk has a water content of 88% and provides the only food or fluid they require until 6 months of age. A baby having additional water will potentially dampen his appetite for breastmilk which not only provides water but also food vital for his health and wellbeing.

What's the difference between a midwife and a lactation consultant?

on Thursday, 20 October 2011.

There is a simple answer to this question: a lactation consultant will provide you with the time,specialised knowledge and personalised support to achieve your breastfeeding goals.

During those early, hazy days of new motherhood there is so much to figure out and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. I know, I’ve been there! I breastfed my three sons (now grown men) and two things were crucial to my success – individual support and consistently accurate information when I needed it most.

Bowen Therapy – how does it work?

on Thursday, 20 October 2011.

Bowen therapy, also known as the Bowen technique or Bowtech, is a holistic muscle and tissue therapy that works on the body at a structural and energetic level.

It’s not massage, but a series of gentle rolling movements performed on very specific areas of the body. This triggers stimulation to the nerves within the fascia of the muscle sending a message to the brain and back through this muscle where the body responds by integrating a healing response . There is absolutely no pain involved, no forceful or uncomfortable movements and no manipulation.
