Care of a Healthy Pregnancy

The care and feeding of a pregnancy and new life

Bodies work well when given the right ingredients. Good plain food, nutrients galore, a simple life close to nature – the sun, the wind, the sky, fresh air and living in natural rhythms. Almost all body and pregnancy problems are directly related to insufficiency of these basic body requirements.

If any potential problem is flagged – using medicine you get more worry, more testing and more professional visits.
Why not run the body the way it was meant to be?
The way humans (As all mammals left alone) have before the last 30 years – when pregnancy unfolded naturally?

  • More good food,
  • quality rest,
  • clean water,
  • healthy outside productive exercise,
  • getting in touch with what makes your heart sing,
  • and less reading /listening to what others say, is.

More of what women have always done until now lived simply, and looked after themselves as they used to be said to be in a ‘delicate condition’.

Almost none of what you will read here on this app/ site is mentioned in any pregnancy information within mainstream obstetrics. Almost none of it will be known, let shared by those you pay to assist you. BUT almost all of it was assumed knowledge before the push for medical interventions, and modern testing, and monitoring in pregnancy and exposing the soon-to-be-parents to all the things that may ‘go wrong’ as though they will go wrong without more visits and tests to see if it has.

Almost everything that is now ‘best practice’ in obstetrics is not based on research findings, or what has always worked before, or the hoped for outcome of a happy mother and a bonded baby but a system of servicing that those making money all agree to do.


What babies need

Babies need a happy, healthy mum who believes in herself and her body.

She needs loving and supportive encouragement to follow her instincts, not have to try to protect baby from those who want to do things to him/her.

Pregnant women do not need rules or protocols to stick within to have babies – they just need loving support at all points; they need to stop and be mums-to-be; becoming less involved into the outside world, and returning to listening to themselves and their babies.

This may not appear to be advice that they want, but disengaging in the world of commerce and business, being busy, but starting to nest within self pays huge profits when baby arrives.  Less stress, less rush and more time to be yourself will possibly mean less income – but you do not need to pay specialists to reverse a natural process.

You do not need helpers who worry you in pregnancy, who know nothing of relevance, and who worry you incessantly.

 What you need

To stop and listen to your body, as it is getting ready to listen to your baby.

To avoid the epidemic of post natal depression and worse, mastitis, inability to breast feed, or to even love being a new mum – the steps are easy – and all shown in the Pregnancy App and the manual ‘What Dads Can Do’, the two DVDs as part of this package, the accompanying eBooks and all information available on all my sites.

Life changes could, and should have happened back to sensible, simple and natural expression in eating, sleeping and what we choose to do with ourselves, especially what we plan for our children.

Are choices made to ensure bonding and hormonal primal instincts are intact at birth?

Are choices made to ensure baby is made as well as possible?

Are babies respected at every step of the way in pregnancy and in birthing?.

Are mums supported when they want to live nature and baby alone to do it their way?

The answers to all of these questions are now negative. It does make money to ensure women keep in paying for what really used to be common sense and common knowledge – and maybe even worked better than the new versions. This may place undue stress on the pregnancy, as mum tries to be ‘good’ whilst ignoring her gut, where all along the way she knows what is happening is not following nature, the instincts, and what she just knows baby needs.

The key person in modern obstetrics is no longer the baby, is rarely the mother and almost always the medical professional – whose job is seen to need protecting.

You may see this as being controversial.

Did you ever wonder why women had so many children and the medical resources were not tied up in servicing them – when there was little food and no spare cash – women just birthed on the kitchen table, or wherever, and got on with life.

Babies are the most precious resource we have. They sometimes seem to be treated as though they are a commodity to be preyed on – all seem to see you coming, and wish to spend more of your money – there are books, gadgets, everything to choose to apparently make life with baby easier.

You can change this

What was known in times past is see as being ‘unscientific’ or ‘old fashioned’.

It also used to work, and still would if we returned to nature.

Spiritual bathing

We all know that we are more than the bits that make up our bodies. All cultures have had a non physical component in their healing work.

Spiritual bathing, or general space clearing is to balance what may be excess energy from too much focus, intense anything – including happiness – or ‘stress’ including watching the events as they unfold on the media. Do we really need all this in our sacred space? Home is where we hide away from the world – why bring it and all that drama into your life? May be in the form also of attention such as when being a performer, or a speaker, can lead to a charge in that person’s auric field which in turn can lead to a heaviness, or restlessness in their being. Different versions  of Feng Shui, dowsing and clearing are seen in most cultures and traditions.

Spiritual Bathing is an ancient ritual found within the history, if not the current practices of most cultures. There are  variations, however the essence is the same. The belief that water is sacred and purifying, can protect and cleanse from negative influences as well as used to mark rites of passage is well known across most human endeavours – and is found within religious experiences.

The Spiritual Bathing practice through the ways of The Maya holds a focus on vitality of the spirit, well outside religion. Beyond talking therapies – it is  regenerative, and gives a sense of renewal and of rebirth.

The Maya Spiritual Bathing is a ritual using Prayer as a Medicine Song, burning Copal ( a resin incense), plants collected with prayer, and the main ingredient – pure water. This is an extremely powerful tool – yet is gentle on people of all ages, in particular children who are generally more sensitive than the grown de-sensitised adult.



  • Susto Fright or Trauma
  • Pesar Grief
  • Tristeza Sadness
  • Coraje Anger
  • El Ojo/Ojo Caliente Hot eye
  • Mal Ojo Evil eye
  • Envidia Envy or jealousy

Spiritual Bathing will also alleviate

  • Soul loss
  • Astral fragments
  • Night terrors
  • Bullying
  • Restlessness with babies/new mothers who have had too many visitors

A simple thing all can do is with intention and gratiti0ude ask a plant to help you – ask which one wishes to = especially your rosemary plant – pick a  twig – or two. Get a clean glass bowl, pure water (not tap ideally) and ask some flowers for guidance – add them to the water, leave in the sun a while, then dip your rosemary in and sprinkle the water from the lustre bowl over your head and through your energy fields, whilst asking for assistance and clearance – anyone can – you may be very surprised at how clear you then feel.
Perhaps extend this practice to the are in and around your house, your children, where there has been discord – keep dipping back in the lustre bowl. Thank all the energies that have helped you. Gratitude for all we have is a graceful way of allowing all that could be to resonate higher for you. A very different form of ‘smudging’ and one that will at least centre you to being more mindful of your surroundings and what impacts upon you and your life.

Session Benefits

Benefits for Women

Normally the uterus sits slightly above the bladder in the centre of the pelvis, about 30-40mm above the pubic bone.

It is held in place by muscles, the vaginal wall and ligaments that attach it to the pelvis.

These ligaments stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to allow movement when the bladder or bowel is full.

The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to move downward, forward, backward or to one side or the other.

A tilted or prolapsed uterus can be the source of a multitude of symptoms.

Women are often told, there is nothing that can be done.

Treatment options may include the birth control pill, muscle relaxants, or surgery.

There are a great many physical and emotional symptoms that can be addressed and prevented with these simple, non-invasive massage techniques.

When reproductive organs shift, they can constrict normal flow of blood and lymph, and disrupt nerve connections.

Just a little extra weight sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause pain and discomfort throughout the different systems in the body.

The natural balance of the body is restored in the pelvic area and the surrounding organs by shifting the uterus back into place.

The massage helps flush toxins and restore nutrients to help tone tissue and bring hormones back to normal levels.

This is essential for healthy reproductive functioning, such as painless periods, healthy pregnancy, effective labor and birth.

Old scars and adhesions from invasive treatments such as fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and cesarean delivery are eased when addressed by uterine massage.

In addition, digestion, urinary and bladder problems can be helped.

Benefits for Men

Men benefit greatly from these technqiues as well.

By ensuring a full blood supply to the prostate, the abdominal massage helps to prevent swelling and inflammation.

Men often feel a distinct difference in blood flow after a treatment.

The massage can relieve prostate swelling, and also help with:

  • varicose veins,
  • premature ejaculation,
  • some impotency problems and
  • the need to urinate frequently.

Digestive and Emotional Benefits for Men and Women

Individuals with digestive disorders benefit greatly from the application of these techniques.

Many of our common disorders such as:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome,
  • Indigestion,
  • Constipation, and
  • heartburn

are treated with antacids, muscle relaxants, and a variety of other medications.

These treatments address symptoms, not the causes.

The Arvigo Techniques give the upper abdomen a deep, thorough massage which loosens tight muscles around the stomach and the arteries. This improves the blood supply to the vital digestive and eliminative organs.

The diaphragm is gently massaged allowing relaxation of tight musculature.

Well Parents

Prospective parents knew to be in the best condition they could be – common sense dictates that mum being well means baby has the best chance for an easy life.

There are now many medical excuses . . . mostly around the women’s age and apparent gyne conditions. In a few short decades, the plummeting male fertility means now a handful of apparently normal LOOKING sperm are considered ‘fertile’, when in the past almost all were expected to look and to behave as sperm should – vigorously swimming for the goal.

This has thus meant that the resultant fetuses are not necessarily fit for independent life – making all the scanning and testing and worries seem so normal now.

Chemicals that were not there 100 years ago and our bodies have no way of screening them out, or knowing what to do with them, once in.
