Sadly, early miscarriages are very common. Often, a woman miscarries before she even realises she’s pregnant. Perhaps as many as three-quarters of all fertilised eggs are lost in the very earliest days of pregnancy. After a positive pregnancy test, there’s about a one in five chance of having an early miscarriage. This is when most miscarriages happen.

The loss of a pregnancy can come as a terrible blow. As well as the emotional shock for you and your loved ones, you may find the physical symptoms hard to bear. Reflexology is a great wellbeing treatment to have post miscarriage to help alleviate some of the symptoms felt after a miscarriage:

Possible emotions after a miscarriage:

  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • difficulty concentrating
  • loss of appetite
  • sadness, grief and numbness
  • depression
  • intense hormonal changes

It is important to take the time to grieve and heal. There are many complementary therapies that can help you cope and rebalance after a miscarriage. Reflexology is incredibly calming and relaxing and will help balance the hormones that are fundamental to the optimum functioning of the reproductive system.

Reflexology can help with:

  • rebalancing hormone levels for the next conception
  • regulating the menstrual cycle for then next conception
  • boost blood circulation
  • encourage the whole body to relax
  • stimulate endorphins – the feel good hormone
  • aid with sleep
  • provided care and touch from person to person
