Osteopathy, acupuncture
and aromatherapy _


Our maternity ward offers complimentary osteopathy, acupuncture and aromatherapy sessions to our patients as part of our commitment to being there for them throughout their pregnancies.



Pregnancy is synonymous with changes in the body and osteopathy can relieve many pregnancy-related ailments and possible pain for mothers-to-be as well as babies. This gentle method can soothe the mind and body during and after pregnancy and if the newborn experiences any pain or discomfort.

The services are provided by an RME-certified practitioner. So if you are planning to have regular osteopathic treatment for yourself or your baby up to 8 weeks in our maternity ward, the sessions may be reimbursed by your supplementary insurance depending on the terms of your contract.



Acupuncture, as a branch of traditional Chinese medicine, aims to regulate the enegetics balance. During and after pregnancy, acupuncture helps to prevent or treat various ailments (anxiety, nausea, digestive and venous disorders, ...) and has the great advantage of being an alternative to medication, often contraindicated during this period. 

The services are provided by two acupuncturists midwives who are ASCA and RME accredited.  If you would like regular acupuncture treatment throughout your pregnancy at our clinic, the sessions may be covered by your supplementary insurance depending on the terms of your contract.



Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic compounds extracted from plants, (also called essential oils), for medicinal purposes. Aromatherapy is part of the field of phytotherapy (medicine based on plant extracts and natural active ingredients). 

You can book an aromatherapy session in addition to an acupuncture session. You also have the option of asking our midwives about the use of aromatherapy in the delivery room. 


These services offered by our clinic are reserved for our patients from the beginning of pregnancy until eight weeks after delivery.

The clinic offers her patients 2 acupuncture and aromatherapy sessions and 2 osteopathy sessions.
