Pregnancy Specialists


"Amazing!!! I was a bit sceptical about the whole pregnancy massage as I've heard different stories from other places, but after visiting Mumanu, I felt amazing and so relaxed afterwards. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and have sore hips/back/shoulders. Sam was fantastic, gave me lots of advice to take home and I was well ready for a sleep once the massage was finished. I could have stayed there all day.I felt like a different person. Highly recommend."

Sharon Woolf

"I loved that before we got into the massage there was genuine interest, care, and conversation about the type of pregnancy I had had so that my needs would be catered for. I had had a bit of a bad experience with my pregnancy and birth and I enjoyed the talk and the care as much as the amazing massage! It was very therapeutic."


"I wanted you to know that I found it incredibly hard to feel positive about my pregnancy, having miscarried last February, until I came to Sam. My massage at 34 weeks with Sam didn’t just relax me, it also affirmed me in a way that meant that I was able to enjoy the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy. Our daughter Maia was born at the end of January and she is thriving. Thank you for allowing me to feel positive.”


"My mother is currently using the pillow and thinks it is great! She is suffering from bad hip pain and the doctor is now talking of a hip replacement.When mum started using the pillow,it was the first nights sleep that she had relatively pain free in quite a while and actually woke up feeling refreshed,instead of tossing and turning and generally having an uncomfortable night sleep."


"I talked to my friend that I gave the pillow to yesterday, and said that she had been procrastinating getting it out of the box and trying it. But saturday night she decided to give it a go, and said she had the best night's sleep she's had in a very long time!"

Looking for a good night’s sleep?

The Original Mumanu™ [m’um-anooo] pregnancy pillow can help. It relieves lower back and hip pain by supporting your body so you’re not twisting and turning in the night (and it doesn’t matter if you sleep on your front, back or side!) NB we only recommend side-sleeping from 22 weeks during pregnancy. It’s perfect during and after pregnancy, or if you suffer from arthritis, sciatica or are waiting for, or recovering from, a hip replacement. Much more comfortable than a pillow between the knees; the Mumanu™ keeps your hip, knee and foot at the same height to correctly align you, giving you the most comfortable night’s sleep. Continue Reading …

Really comfy and easy to use

Have you tried putting a pillow between your knees but had no luck getting a decent night’s sleep? It’s probably because having it between your knees is pulling on your lower back, twisting your knee and hip joint and putting too much pressure on the bottom leg (ouch!). The Mumanu pillow is placed in front of your bottom leg, then you rest your top leg on the pillow to alleviate back and hip pain. Continue Reading …
