Mother Nurture was born from a passion for using natural alternatives to improve health and wellbeing as well as a desire to nurture and nourish women on their journey from pregnancy to motherhood and beyond. Clinical aromatherapy is particularly appealing for its ability to treat holistically.
Sonya’s qualifications, experience and passion in midwifery, clinical aromatherapy and massage provided the foundations for Mother Nurture. Sonya’s own experiences of pregnancy and motherhood also provided some of the impetus which led to Mother Nurture’s being. Essential oils were a valuable (maybe even essential) adjunct in enhancing her own wellbeing during her two pregnancies and births, and for getting through just about every day since! Aromatherapy is an integral part of her daily family life.
Through Sonya’s discussions with women it became evident that many were reluctant to use aromatherapy during their pregnancy. Women are quite vulnerable during this time and with so much confusing and conflicting advice it was often simpler to do without. Sonya knew firsthand that under the care of a qualified therapist aromatherapy was a wonderful, natural way to treat minor discomforts and enhance wellbeing during pregnancy and birth. This spurred her on to develop a service where women could be assured they were receiving expert advice and care.
Mother Nurture: using mother nature to nurture mothers. This was essentially the vision. Sonya delights in the opportunity to support women on a personal level to enhance their wellbeing from preconception through to the many years of motherhood and beyond.
