I help – mums, and mums to be

My name is Wendy Proctor. I’m a qualified NHS midwife and experienced pregnancy massage therapist, based in Bristol.

I’ve been interested in complimentary therapies for almost 20-years. Especially those that enable me to genuinely help women through their pregnancy, into motherhood: Treatments that make a real difference to mum and to baby.

I’ve learnt so many things that are not taught in our formal midwife training – and with Hypnobirthing I’m able to help reduce instrumental delivered babies, caesarean births and lessen long and painful labours. I’m also qualified to massage women from their first trimester, to labour. This includes clients who may be deemed at higher risk – including diabetes and hypertension.

As well as massage treatments, I offer courses, including Calm and Confident Hypnobirthing and Mindful Breastfeeding for my trust NBT.  Using hypnosis I also offer birth trauma recovery if your previous birth experience causes you anxiety, stress or sleepless nights, also recently added a module for baby loss and miscarriage.

Once baby has arrived, I practice a wide range of postnatal support treatments, too. And of course some mothers do experience difficult births. And I help them recover physically and mentally, to regain their ‘own self’, even if their experience was some time ago. Including Baby Massage course each month on a Tuesday at 11am via Zoom.

Some clients visit for a simple individual treatment, and many choose a series of sessions. And gift vouchers remain a hugely popular, and appreciated gift for friends, family or work colleagues on their journey to motherhood.

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 Balens. I have taken advice from FHT and national guidelines in reference to Covid-19, as will be adhering to appropriate PPE and risk assessment to keep you safe, and my family safe too. I’m married and live with my husband and daughter and my family live close by.

I very much look forward to hearing from you, and the chance to explain more how I may be able to make a genuine, positive difference for you and your new family.
