Suzanne is the founder of Wellmother but as well as teaching on all the courses she also works with individual clients, both male and female, from her clinic in Bristol and can offer home visits in the Bristol area, or sometimes sessions when she is teaching in different locations. She also offers Home/ Email appointments and Private or Group Zoom consultations. Although she works with clients at all stages of their lives, she specialises in working with women’s health from preconception through to the menopause and beyond, as well as integrating partners and babies through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
She works with both massage and shiatsu, or a combination of the two, depending on your preference.

With a special interest in Pregnancy and women's menstrual cycles. Qualified 2005, Wellmother 2009.
Working with women and families has always been my focus, initially starting out as a nurse and then a midwife for 12 years. For the past 16 years I have been supporting women and men in their muscluo-skeletal health through massage therapy and structural alignment. I have found touch to be a vital part in everyday health and especially during pregnancy and labour, it frees the body from stress and tension of muscular tightness which can cause misalignment in the skeletal system, as such good alignment assists with more efficient labour and delivery of the baby. Massage allows a restoration of body , mind and emotions, it encourages health and wholeness, and empowers the person to take an active part in their wellbeing. I teach 'massage for couple's' courses showing you how techniques can be helpful during labour. Every session, whether teaching or treatment, is tailor made for your needs and I travel to your home so you can continue resting after the treatment is finnished.
I work one to one with pregnant and post natal women and their babies, (and sometimes partners) as a body worker and yoga therapist. I offer yoga classes for pregnant and post natal woman, and birth workshops for couples and small groups. I am an IAIM baby massage therapist running regular courses or one to one sessions.
Pregnancy massage is a soothing and relaxing treatment. A side lying position is used to perform gentle massage movements to warm the muscles and induce a feeling of well being. This is followed by deeper movements to reduce areas of tension in the back, lower and upper legs and arms. The benefit of pregnancy massage includes a sense of nurturing, relaxation, boost to the immune system, release of tension, soreness and stiffness in the joints and aids digestion.
Here at Bristol Pregnancy Massage I work with heart to provide nourishing and nurturing massage for all stages of pregnancy, post natal and far beyond. Supporting and empowering mums to be at all stages of their pregnancy and post natal recovery. Treatments are generally floor based, I also offer couples massage for Labour workshops and focused treatments for 36 weeks plus. I work with grace and enthusiasm, bringing an individual approach to every treatment.
Using massage, shiatsu and aromatherapy to support women and their families to have a happy and natural pregnancy. As well as offering massage and shiatsu treatments, I will help support the whole pregnancy journey with an individually created unique range of natural aromatherapy products with tailored advise on how to use them at home; this could include a personalised massage blend, a tummy balm, a sore aching back balm, an inhaler for morning sickness or nappy rash gel for when baby arrives ❤️.
“I spent two wonderful hours each week with Fen during my pregnancy, during which she treated me to a perfectly tailored session of massage, shiatsu and aromatherapy. Her treatments and magic touch helped me relax and work through the physical niggles of pregnancy, and become more in tune with my body as it changed. Our sessions also played a huge part in preparation for labour. The breathing techniques and body positioning work we did together were invaluable when the big day came. Fen has a warm, calm and open approach to her sessions which ensure that both body and mind get the care and attention they need. I can't recommend Fen's pregnancy massage highly enough!” Anne, Lecturer, Researcher and new mum!
