"Love U Mamma, lovely atmosphere. Great pregnancy yoga classes. Looking forward to having more treatments and mum & baby yoga." Lydia, Bray
"Hi there, I would like to convey my long overdue thanks to Deirdre for the acupuncture I received in the weeks leading up to the birth of my little boy. He was breech, and from 34 weeks I attended Deirdre for acupuncture which I found hugely relaxing and effective! My baby turned and I also credit her for helping my labour to be very straightforward and quick! (Harry was born 40 mins after i arrived to the hospital!) She clearly helped to prepare my body for the delivery. I would thoroughly recommend acupuncture with Deirdre to every pregnant woman". Susan, Greystones
“I thoroughly enjoyed my treatment and it helped me relax pending my return to work next week. I would highly recommend the postnatal massages.” Rebecca, Delgany
“Thank you so much for a beautifully relaxing hour of treatment in preparation to the birth of my second baby.” Emma, Roundwood
“Two days away from the dreaded induction I didn’t think it would be possible to relax. I was wrong. Thank you so much for the chance to calm my mind and focus on what’s important, me and baba!” Kerry, Blackrock
“Very relaxing treatment & friendly, professional staff.” Fiona, Roundwood
“Anna is an excellent teacher and also quotes great advice/homework for outside the class. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to improve posture, core strength and toning.” Jenny, Wicklow
“I found the prenatal & postnatal Pilates excellent and love the regular Pilates.” Janet, Bray
“Anna is an excellent teacher, very in tune with the needs of the group. I really enjoyed the class.” Sarah, Sandymount
“This is my third physiotherapist; I had almost given up until I met Anna (physio) in U Mamma. Her examination was very thorough, her explanation, diagnosis very succinct and fingers crossed my future sessions will continue to go well. So relieved and delighted to have found U Mamma & Anna.” Elaine, Dublin
"Loved the treatment, feel rejuvenated and relaxed ready for a big sleep." Sophie, Delgany.
"Anna is always extremely professional and takes the time to find out what you want from the treatment. She is very attentive and focused on you. This is why I keep coming back to U Mamma and request she is my therapist." Karen, Bray.
"Anna is so lovely. The massage she gave me was the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend this to my pregnant friends.
Thank you for such a lovely experience!" Nicola, Greystones.
"I started the physiolates course with Áine recently and I am thoroughly enjoying it. As I am preparing for the arrival of baby number three, I am finding it very benefical as Aine is excellent at designing the class to suit the specific needs and concerns of each individual in the class. The class combines stretching exercises with much appreciated relaxation at the end of every class!! I leave every class feeling physically and emotionally lighter than I did going in and that says a lot!! Highly recommended!" Sinead Giblin, Dublin.
"I have been attending Aine’s Prenatal Physiolates classes for 12 weeks now. I feel really well in myself and am very conscious of my posture. I am 30 weeks now and have had no back problems or aches and pains. It’s also very reassuring to be attending a class taught by Chartered Physiotherapist. Aine is happy to give one to one advice and exercises for any issues you may have. I would highly recommend these classes, I’m so glad I decided to attend!" Fiona Robertson, Wicklow.
“Cannot recommend UMamma enough! I had an extremely difficult pregnancy and ended up confined to bed for the last trimester, as I was unable to walk due to severe SPD. I only wish I had met Aine, the physio sooner! When I first met Aine, I was 6 weeks post delivery. I still struggled to walk.Aine quickly changed all that for me - She is utterly amazing! She works late some evenings which really suited me as my husband was able to babysit! She was always kind and gentle, yet firm when I groaned about the exercises I needed to do!I now attend her for post natal physiolates, and I'm sure in no time my baby-belly will be gone! The severe pelvic and back pain is now well and truly gone…….all thanks to Aine!
She is super!” Mairead Downey, Wicklow.
"I had amazing time during my last ''signature pregnancy therapy massage'' ,U Mamma is a professional place for all pregnant women who would like to get 100% attention and care when expecting. I felt very relaxed after my treatment and will be back soon for another one:)" Aleksandra Zagronda, Wicklow.
"I would like to share my experience of the wonderful Bliss Therapy at U Mamma At the start of the treatment I was very tense, stressed agitated and tired. Deborah is a talented therapist who put me at ease straight away. She is very good at reading peoples energy. The back neck and shoulder massage was very soothing. This was then followed by some lymphatic drainage on my legs which helped release my fluid retention. The Indian Head massage was the icing on the cake...I was quite simply ready for my bed by the end of the treatment I went home and slept for 4 hours! I was totally refreshed afterwards. A very worthwhile experience which I would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
"I came across U Mamma when I googled the internet looking for a pregnancy pilates class. What I have got has been far beyond a pilates class and I am just so happy to have found it! This is my second pregnancy and so I thought I knew it all but I have learnt so much from my weekly class, I don’t just get a work out every week, I get valuable tips and pointers about my pregnant body and how to happily get through these nine months. I am also delighted that I will be able to sign up for a post natal pilates class so I can get back in shape afterwards…….I could go on and on about how valuable I have found my whole U Mamma experience but suffice to say I am delighted by it all!!!"
"Attended antenatal pilates (9 sessions)
This course has changed my life! My back was causing me constant misery until I learnt how to adjust my posture etc and now I automatically use the exercises when I feel my back becoming tired/achy and am much more body/back aware all the time. Deborah was friendly and professional, and also has the right level to make you work and not feel intimidated.
Also had a 'Bliss' massage which was lovely!
Thank you so much."
"My husband and I attended the partners prenatal session and found it a wonderful experience. The exercises, breathing and message techniques that we learned were very beneficial in helping me to relax and be more comfortable in the days before my labour and during labour. The techniques also meant that my husband had an idea of what to expect during labour.
He was then able to use these techniques to assist me to become more comfortable whilst I was in labour."
"What I liked best about the baby massage classes was the way in which Deborah took the time at the first session to get to know my little girl and make both herself and myself feel completely comfortable and at home in Medicare. Every time we arrived after that my little girl got the biggest greeting and she was always excited to be there and to see everybody. My husband though that baby massage was only for the mother and one day when he was with us he got to massage her and really enjoyed it. If Deborah hadn’t taken the time to make him feel relaxed he wouldn’t have had that bonding experience. Finally as you walk through the doors to the Medicare reception you instantly feel relaxed and calm. It’s a fantastic atmosphere and environment."
"I found both my treatments fabulous! I was going through a bad patch during my pregnancy the first time I came for treatment and the second time I was just feeling big and heavy. On each occasion I left feeling calmer, lighter in both mind and body and the feeling of well-being and relaxation stayed with me for the rest of the day, if not longer. The various products and oils used were wonderful, and when they were combined with the massage techniques I felt I just melted away. I would have no hesitation recommending Umamma treatments to anyone, indeed I hope to be back to Umamma before my big day. For me they were life savers! "
"During my pregnancy I have been fortunate to have had a number of pregnancy-specific treaments in various locations. Of all of these, my experiences of the massage with reiki at the Umamma sanctuary have been the most positive.The sessions are deeply relaxing and the benefits continue for days afterwards even more so than with a regular massage.
The treatment rooms are finished to the highest standard which really adds to the feeling of being pampered. However, it is the approach of the therapist, Deborah, which ensures the whole experience is so beneficial. She is clearly a highly skilled practitioner and her professional yet friendly manner puts you at ease in order to fully relax and enjoy the experience. I cannot recommend the Umamma sanctuary highly enough."
"Having had my first baby just over six months ago, I went to medicare for some Post-Natal Physiotherapy to assist me with strengthening my pelvic floor muscles. I found that the treatments from Deborah were excellent - as well as teaching me how to exercise my pelvic floor muscles, Deborah also helped me with exercises to strengthen my back muscles and boost my overall fitness levels.
There has been a marked improvement in just six weeks with my pelvic floor muscles and a surprising improved difference to my overall body shape.
Overall, I have found the staff at U Mamma to be very helpful and friendly - I highly recommend them."
"After undertaking an extensive liposuction in Italy, i was told I had to take a cycle of at least 10 linphatic drainage massages to help recovery. When I returned to Ireland, finding a qualified therapist was a challenge. Finally I got in touch with Umamma/Medicare and begun massage therapy with Deborah. After only one treatment, my bruises improved incredibly and after 10 sessions I was almost back to normal. The only remnant of the operation was a not-so-tight skin tone, so I was advised to take the 'after pregnancy' package of treatments that included massages and a 1:1 pilates training. After only a month my skin tone visibly improved and my entire figure too! I was very satisfied with the treatment and the therapist in Medicare. I would recommend their service to anyone!"
