Holistic support for fertility, pregnancy and early parenthood

Forty Weeks was established in 2002 by Kirsty Hawthorn whose vision was to provide professional training and holistic care for fertility, pregnancy, birth and the post natal period.

Forty Weeks offers training sessions and treatments that are evidenced based yet individually and holistically tailored.

As a holistic therapist for many years Kirsty specialised in working with women during their antenatal, pregnancy and postnatal journeys. Passionate about her own journey she trained as a midwife and works passing on skills through teaching, seeing massage clients and in a clinical and home birth environment.

Kirsty create ease and relaxation for her clients and students to explore and learn in. Either as a client or a student, sessions and trainings are deeply relaxing, fun and sensitive with both clinical, anthropological and eastern viewpoints woven in.


Kirsty’s approach is based
on the following key beliefs:

~ continuity of care is of upmost importance during this specific time in a woman’s life ~

~ women have an innate ability to birth ~

~ the support women receive during pregnancy, birth and as new mums should reflect and celebrate their diversity ~
