Show Notes

This week’s episode, we discuss all things reflexology. Sam is more than qualified to be our guest for the episode and she left me, and I’m sure you will be left feeling the same, wanting to be on her treatment bed with your feet up in her hands.

Enjoy the episode and please take a minute to rate and review the podcast here as it will help women join the community and to find the message of Mum’s The Word.

We also have our facebook page for more articles on all things birth, conception, pregnancy and early parenting found  here.

“Self care for women is not an indulgence- it is a necessity to support your own health and wellbeing and that of your family.”
