Foresight Pre-conception & Infertility Program

Evidence from many eminent researchers shows that infertility, miscarriage, premature birth and learning problems are often preventable by:

  • Improving nutrition
  • Treating allergies, candida & digestive malabsorption
  • Avoidance of poisons, smoking, alcohol & drugs

The Foresight Program is in essence a non-invasive, caring, nutrional and homeopathic approach that has a 90% success rate of delivering healthy babies to previously infertile couples.

Debbie Greenslade RSHom is a professional Homeopath who has also qualified as a Foresight Practitioner  "Infertility & miscarriage can be the most devastating process to live through, often very isolating. Helping couples recover & overcome the reasons behind their losses is the highlight of my work, especially seeing the delight and relief on their face's when they have a healthy baby. I feel privileged to be able to help, guide & empower them to reach that goal"

Massage

  • Massage therapy and bodywork can be extremely valuable in pregnancy as your body goes through immense changes.
  • Massage induces a sense of calm leading to greater emotional stability in the mother and subsequently in the baby.
  • The impact continues long after the birth and the baby recognises that massage = calm!
  • The aches and pains of pregnancy can be greatly reduced or even eliminated. Common discomforts including fluid retention, varicose veins, nausea and shortness of breath can be relieved.
  • Massage can also contribute to a shorter less painful labour by programming the body memory with the soothing stimulus of touch.
