why train with us?

Our trainers are highly experienced midwives and our research lead is midwifery consultant, researcher and principal of Sole to Soul Reflexology, Dr Lyndall Mollart based in Sydney, Australia.
Jenni Tribe is the UK Principle of the Maternity Reflexology Consortium based in North Norfolk, UK. We have other midwives in the training team across the world.
Many of our former students have progressed with their own research studies including Dr Julie McCullough.

The Maternity Reflexology Consortium was founded in 2010 by the UK midwives Dr. Lyndall Mollart, Jenni Tribe and the late Gill Thomson and pioneer, Susanne Enzer- (the 'mother of maternity reflexology'), in order to optimise the standard of training available for postgraduate reflexologists and midwives.

Reflexology a Tool for Midwives- Susanne Enzer High quality, evidence-based, midwife-led CPD training for non reflexologist midwives

training for midwives

1 day Introduction to Maternity Reflexology Day for Midwives 
6 hours introduction to techniques which can be used in pregnancy and for friends and family and under protocol to support birthing. Competency based assessment. Contact us to see how we can help you support your service users.


30 hour Reflexology for Midwives Course
Follow on from the Introduction Day or as an independent course.
5 days (2-days on site, 1day online midway, 2-days on site 6 weeks later)
Comprehensive face to face training, case studies and assignments to achieve competency in Maternity Reflexology. This is unsuitable for cascade training to colleagues due to the depth of the detailed training and techniques performed and the depth of training and experience of the training midwives. General clinical reflexology takes a year of training and around 100 case studies to complete to gain a comprehensive understanding and practical application of tailored treatment plans. This training will give you the skills to provide knowledgable care and appropriate practical reflexology techniques for a variety of scenarios and includes techniques for post maturity including acupressure and an introduction to moxibustion. You will learn how to apply techniques to encourage the incoming soul to move into optimal positioning and support all stages of birthing (labour) and the biomechanics of birthing supporting normal birth and for the mother to experience a fulfilling birth whatever the outcome and mode of delivery. Research evidence from one of our students, Dr Julie McCullough showed that second stage of labour was shorter and required less pain relief.
