Jan's Research Paper

She’s internationally recognised for her contributions to the medical understanding of complementary therapies, and she was instrumental in the movement in the 1990s toward domino and home births.

Jan always knew that doctors would accept the practice more happily, however, if the science behind it were available, and she has spent much of her career promoting the benefits of natural birth massage aromatherapy. This pursuit led her to earn a degree at Greenwich University, where she obtained a BSc (Hons), Complementary Therapy (Aromatherapy), on top of her extensive nursing, midwifery, and anaesthetics qualifications.

Jan’s academic paper ‘Aromatherapy and Massage for Antenatal Anxiety: Its Effect on the Fetus’ was published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice. It was the most read paper in the journal in 2007 and remains on the top-ten reads list in 2016.

Jan’s message

Throughout my experiences I’ve learned that some of the traditional ways still benefit us today, but being a medical professional, I wanted to understand how they worked.

Now to share my expertise as a midwife, clinician and aromatherapist, I have created this range of luxurious Motherlylove products to use at this exciting time of your life.

You can feel confident using our products. Each of our oils is from a specially selected supplier and chosen for its unique properties, then rigorously lab-tested for purity, quality and chemical composition.

We work hard getting it right, so you can unwind, relax and just enjoy using our blends. The range includes beautiful fragrances to lift your spirits, carrier oils to hydrate and sooth, and constituents to pamper, energise and promote restful sleep.

Each and every oil we make is carefully developed with you and your baby’s well-being in mind.

And we’re happy to answer your questions: if you can’t find the information you need about our products on the website, feel free to get in touch.
