Pregnancy Massage Therapist & Experienced Midwife

Wendy Proctor experienced Pregnancy massage therapist and qualified Midwife offers a range of massage therapies in Bristol, also a Spinning Babies® Provisional Parent Educator and KG Hypnobirthing Teacher.

As an NHS Midwife but have been interested in Complementary Therapies especially massage for the last 19 years.  I am married and live with my husband and daughter in Montpelier, Bristol, and my family live close by.

I been qualified for over 19 years in a range of therapies which grows each year. Due to the specialist nature of the Pregnancy Massage qualification I am able to massage women during the first trimester; during labour and also higher risk clients for example those with diabetes, pregnancy induced hypertension, using a unique blend of Shiatsu and massage techniques.  After one massage women often come back for more and more and postnatally too, so why not look into paying for six session with my Pregnancy and Postnatal Package which will save you £25.

Postnatal Massage can help women with upper shoulder and back pain often caused by poor posture when breastfeeding.  I offer an hours massage with or without your baby or a wonderful Closing the Bones Massage which is a two hour massage click Postnatal tab  for more information.

Fertility/Womb Massage may help many women who may be having ART or trying to conceive, click the tab to find more information.  Also after three months come for a wonderful womb massage, which helps with circulation and other issues mentioned on this page.

I also teach Spinning Babies as a Provisional Parent Educator this is a must for all couples.  As a midwife I learnt so much about the pelvis, ligaments and muscles that we are not taught in our training.  I believe Spinning Babies to be a breakthrough in helping reduce instrumental delivered babies, Cesarean births and long and painful labours.  Its an additional class which can be attended after your NHS antenatal class or private Hypnobirthing/Antenatal Class you will learn lots of new techniques.  On the course you will be actively using the techniques and movements which will help you during your pregnancy and labour.

I also offer Gift vouchers a great Christmas, Birthday gift for any expectant or postnatal mum.

My qualifications are with the Association of Physical and Natural Therapies (APNT), in which I hold current membership Federation Holistic Therapies (FHT), and I’m insured with Hiscox Insurance.

I work from my comfortable home in Montpelier,
