Reflexology Comb for Labour + Birth in pearl or tortoise shell made from eco friendly cellulose acetate (highly biodegradable) and imprinted with our signature Seasons of Mama mantra
~ Open, Soften, Surrender ~
This is what we refer to as our “Secret Weapon” for labour/birth; an acupressure tool loved by Midwives, Doulas and of course, Mamas alike. She earns bonus points for being waterproof too, unlike timber.
This natural and very effective pain management tool helps women in labour by activating Gate Control Theory. This asserts that when painful stimuli (such as a contraction) is felt at the same time as non-painful stimuli (such as with this “handy” acupressure tool - pun definitely intended) pain signals are then limited from reaching the brain. To see our comb in action please visit our Highlight section on Instagram.
Also makes a wonderful tool for caesarean births as a tool for stress reduction and distraction.
What's more, she is multi purpose so becomes a function hair comb and storytelling/keepsake piece of your baby's birth
Other awesome things to know about our best selling combs:
Long in length so you can squeeze with one or two hands
Rounded teeth to prevent skin trauma (if you choose sharp tooth comb, please be cautious)
Works amazing on its own or in combination with a Tens machine (dream team)
If mama wishes to labour/birth in water, she will need to remove her tens but thankfully will have this tool as a constant support during contractions
Squeeze our comb instead of your partner/support persons hand which frees them up to tend to other areas (such as your back for a comforting massage)
Can also be used for light touch massage on her back (which a mama recently discovered - genius!)
By purchasing this comb you are directly supporting another small family rather than a large corporation who mass produces products
