Win a FREE Prenatal or Postnatal Reflexology Treatment with Linda Baril

Linda Baril is offering Foot Reflexology sessions at Mothering Touch. Her years of experience working with childbearing women have shown her how valuable a treatment can be, both in the prenatal and postpartum periods. Reflexology can help to relieve some of the anxiety and stress that a woman may be experiencing about the upcoming birth and the changes that accompany this amazing transition in parenthood. It can also help to alleviate some of the discomforts of pregnancy, whether you are experiencing disrupted sleep or heartburn.

After baby has arrived, the new mother’s emotional and physical being are going through dramatic adjustments – a session can help ease you through this transition. Linda had found that a postpartum treatment can help the body release the accumulation of extra tissue fluid, encourage the rebalancing of hormones and provide a sense of ‘revitalization’.

Linda is a Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, as well as a Reflexology Therapist and Instructor. She is also the mother of four and grandmother of four more!

Pregnancy Happy Hour – Happy Feet!


Pregnancy Happy Hour – our drop-in group for pregnant women on Friday evenings from 5-6:30 – is one of my favourite times of the week. I love sitting with the moms-to-be and chatting about how they are feeling, how their lives are changing through the pregnancy. I love hearing their questions and helping them to find answers. I love how the moms bond with each other and form friendships which see them not only through the pregnancy, but on into motherhood. We talk about the joys and challenges of pregnancy, their concerns and plans about labour and birth and their dreams for motherhood.

One of the things I think helps the group work really well, it that it’s just for women. Groups of women often achieve intimacy very quickly, and Pregnancy Happy Hour is no exception. But I am often asked by the women and their partners, if the partners couldn’t be invited along to the group sometimes, as a special event. And I though Valentine’s Day was a good time for that to happen.

So on Friday February 15, we are inviting the partners to come to Pregnancy Happy Hour and we are going to have a special guest. Michele Mork of West Coast Reflexology will be coming to teach us all some fabulous foot massage techniques. And lest you think this is just a sneaky way to get our partners to rub our feet, I assure you, the partners will get their feet rubbed too. After all Valentine’s is about spreading the love to ALL.

Pregnancy Happy Hour costs $2, and we will put out a donation jar for contributions to Michele’s fee. A $5 contribution (per couple) is suggested.
