Uterine ligaments  stretch to accommodate a growing fetus within

Normally your body just gradually grows. Unless you have had severe scarring (may need some help to undo this – ideally prior to pregnancy) or if you started a pregnancy somewhat out of shape – this may mean a pain riddled adventure as all has to stretch.

Maybe you need some assistance nourishing and hydrating yourself so all is easy?

Throughout pregnancy is a great time to encourage any body imbalances to heal. Particularly if you as the mum-to-be have had a back or other structural concerns prior to conceiving.

This can be healed through the same and profoundly effective though very gentle structural work that is incorporated. Past birthing or surgical trauma is also undone gently.

The past tendency to have injured self – often without releasing it – from any fall at any time in your life – means that often your womb may be misaligned. The sacral area may not be optimally placed to now allow normal nerve, blood, lymph and Qi flow to the placenta and thus to ensure baby’s optimal growth. This is all tied into circulation of all things – past uterine conditions that may signal the pregnancy being seen medically as being ‘high risk’.

So it is – if no one corrects what has been set up through your  life.


Ingredients and flows – here we are speaking of flows (circulation) and what stops it being perfect.
We also need to look to nutrients and their ability to be used – see more here…


pregnant mamaA safer and gentler progress through from preconception to babe in arms for both mother and baby can be expected when you come to see me. Assume instant relief and support to your growing womb – relieving almost all pregnancy complaints.

The reasons behind the digestive complaints, and any indications of structural imbalances – pelvic, pubic and all neck tension is relieved through the easy gentle work as multi modality moves are incorporated into whatever else I choose to do to enhance normal in your specific case.

If you are bugged by back and pelvic pain – here is an answer – even without seeing me.
I have developed in the ‘What Dads Can Do’ techniques found here. Also see here (for more videos and resources)

By continuing working with the back and the belly as the pregnancy progresses, the stretching ligaments are encouraged into perfect functioning.  This is assisted by your taking note of the increase in ingredients that will make your pregnancy journey so much easier – and safer for baby as s/he will be grown with the very best.

More here (my breast feeding site). (I have incorporated all I have done in the past 40+ years in Brisbane as a healer and teacher) into The Gentling Way. By using multi modalities, I  can likely instantly and permanently relieve all back, especially sacral torsion and sciatica leading to much easier late pregnancy and birthing ease.

I work with women at all stages of life including pre and post baby. As a wise woman who has birthed and reared 4 of her own (now adult) children, I have been exposed to many traditions – and all of them from the older women work. So too with this Maya healing. I find it essential to undo all that has happened before and around the birth for mum, so she can have the best maternal adventure possible. From my own birthing journey, I also know that the sooner the body is returned to as it was /as it can be – the easier lactation and coping with the phenomenal changes baby brings. I am not only a Maya belly/soul healer. I incorporate this work into what I have done for decades. Yang Sheng – nourishing life – we can return anyone to a more optimum health at any stage of their life journey. More on my healing journey here.

Labour – have a smoother labour, and a quicker second stage

Please check out my opening for birthing site here. As with so many traditional cultures, the older Belizean midwives report never losing a mother – or even having woman tear or rip in birthing. We also could be gracefully and gently birthing. They strengthened and toned the body, the uterus, ligaments and other pelvic organs, using this massage and the allied back focus helping to place and maintain the uterus in her optimal position. Birthing easily – as women were designed to. The bonus is almost all structural pains are magicked away!!

Arvigo pregnancy work on the floorI often though on the floor. There is an instant reduction in all pain and an astounding increase in well being and comfort – often after decades of dealing with what women thought was ‘their lot’.

Rebozo – you can do this at home – maybe lie on the floor with the shawl/sarong /towel under your bum and get someone to gently rock you from side to side – or ‘sift’ you gently as you are seated in a chair – with the Rebozo/shawl above your breasts and under your armpits. More on this here.



I often see women the day they have birthed as there is so much that is missing in orthodox ‘care’ – the old fashioned past cultures tending mums to ensure all goes well for the rest of her life.

NO COLD or ice allowed – as all Asian and all traditional cultures would attest – they all smoke/steam and roast their women – along with belly binding and spiritual bathing and smudging. I ensure that all sacral and pelvic alignment is as it should be and that all cold and blood loss as a result of the birthing is corrected.  Please note – I work immediately on all new mums as so very often things have gone in a different direction from perfect – and attending to all the hurts on all levels assures a smooth transition to easy mothering. I support the womb and other organs to return to optimum position.

Often women find me when there has been significant losses. The resolution of grief, feelings of betrayal and of sheer terror sometimes in contemplating another pregnancy and birth need resolving.



Many Caesarean births could be prevented with this simple, safe, easy to learn massage technique.
Please also look at my healing after birth page here. The 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. As I am the only practitioner who has done the Mercier training – I incorporated all Dr Mercier has done in addition with my own unique way of working.

Also look to all I have posted around pregnancy and birthing on this self help site for birthing related issues.  Home based dad centred self help is what you may need. . Natural health problem solutions at your fingertips!



See me as a programme involving even more than this – is possible. . .
Regardless of how long ago – and especially to ensure the next pregnancy is easy . .

I do this – and so much more .. .

Or contact me to undo all that may be bothering you – often when no other health care visits have managed. Why? We need so very often to work on your uterine placement, that in turn allows the entire body to relax back to where it was supposed to be – in perfect alignment.
