Dr. Gowri Motha and her team have been invited by senior consultants at the Whittington Hospital to introduce her Gentle Birth Method classes and treatments. We are proud and honoured to be of service to mothers and fathers. This is an affordable service at a minimum donation for pregnant mothers.

NEWS – The Reflexology service is now open! 


Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, all classes will be offered ONLINE via Zoom until further notice.

Dear Mothers at the Whittington,

The classes teach couples techniques on how to tune in and release their own endorphins. Mothers can practice this all the way through pregnancy to encourage a comfortable pregnancy and a manageable birthing process.
Endorphins are nature’s own anaesthetic agents!

Each session concludes with an effective and beautiful Birth Rehearsal.
