Laura Shaw – Laura Shaw Photography

Professional Photographer
Specialising in pregnancy, newborn & family photography

“I love photographing people’s faces. Their natural expressions and reactions around people they love is the inspiration for my photography. As women we create life within our bodies, sustaining their lives for 9 miraculous months. I feel this journey is one that needs to be documented and treasured. For me, capturing this transformation from woman to mother is as important as capturing a bride and groom on their wedding day”. Based in West Sussex

Richard Davison

Craniosacral Therapist
Specialising in Pregnancy, Post birth, Babies & Children

Richard very kindly treats babies under the age of 12 months for FREE on their first visit.

“Babies and children respond really well to Craniosacral Therapy. Ideally newborns should be checked as soon as possible after birth, whether easy or complicated. This can prevent conditions such as colic, feeding problems and flat heads. In more severe cases, dyslexia, autism and cerebral palsy can be prevented or helped.
Mothers can benefit from treatments during and after pregnancy. This ensures the back and pelvis remain aligned, preventing long-term problems. Post natal depression, menstrual problems and sometimes infertility can also be helped.

Children also respond well, regarding learning difficulties, glue ear, sports injuries and the effects of illness, such as meningitis.”

Andrew Shaw

Personal Trainer – The Better Body Company

As a Personal Trainer I work with various health and gym groups and general population clients. I work with a range of clients of all abilities helping them with their body transformations. Some clients are mother’s looking to get back to their pre pregnancy physique and some clients I work with have struggled to get up the stairs to the gym floor because of their weight when they first came to me. To help these people improve their health and stack years onto their life is very rewarding. Along with presenting seminars on health and fitness to schools and businesses I have been fortunate enough to interview some of the most respected people in the fitness industry.

If you need some help with finding your body confidence post pregnancy whether it be weight loss, becoming fitter and stronger or improving your health, all the help you need is here. Based in Crawley – West Sussex
