Cairns Pregnancy Massage

As a massage therapist and bodyworker with 10 years experience as a birthworker, I provide nurturing pregnancy and postpartum massage, pelvic alignment and functional bodywork to support you through all stages of pregnancy, birth and beyond.

Internal Pelvic Release

I provide internal pelvic release work sessions, combining pelvic alignment with internal release of tension in the soft tissues of the pelvis. This work restores balance and function to the pelvic floor, supporting conditions from pelvic prolapse to endometriosis. 

Empowering Birth Education

I provide empowering birth education and active birth preparation classes in group settings and private sessions to provide personalised guidance and holistic support on your journey. Available in Yorkeys Knob, your home and online.

Hi, I’m Shelly!

No two births are ever the same. I have supported mothers, couples and families through diverse pregnancy and birth journeys including freebirth, homebirth, hospital birth and birthing on country.

Holistic Care

I provide non-medical pregnancy and postpartum care including childbirth education, massage, pelvic alignment, pelvic floor release, birth planning and emotional support throughout your pregnancy, postpartum and beyond.

Ongoing Support

Nurturing you during pregnancy and meeting your baby is only the halfway point of our journey together. I also offer birth debriefs and work as a postpartum massage therapist and bodyworker to nurture you in the sacred postpartum time.

“I recently had a pregnancy massage with Shelly and it was divine. She made me feel comfortable and explained why she was going to work on certain areas based on what I had told her about how I was feeling within my body. I felt amazing afterwards with problem areas feeling relieved. I highly recommend Shelly Langford!”

– Patricia Cox

“What a relaxing and healing experience! The most welcoming space I have ever entered – (the relaxation began the second I opened the door) and the best pregnancy massage from someone who clearly knows the pregnant body and what it needs. I felt completely renewed and floated out of there on a cloud. Can’t wait to return again soon! Thanks so much Shelly, you have a gift! Pregnant ladies please don’t hesitate to book in. You won’t regret it.”

– Hannah Corrie

“What a gorgeous experience I had with Shelly. I’d highly recommend her to any mumma. My session was highly educational, informative, relaxing and my body feels nourished. I feel more prepared to birth my baby after spending time with Shelly and I look forward to seeing her again. Very grateful to have found you, Shelly. Thank you!”

“I am 32 weeks preganant and expercing back pain, leg pain and cramping. I had my first appointment with Shelly and What an amazing experience, the body work was great and Shelly is very informative answering questions along the way. The massage was a great way to end, very relaxing. I feel a huge difference in pain levels already. I will be booking regularly”

“Shelly has such an incredible talent and knowledge about the woman’s body. I had a pelvis alignment + pregnancy massage and it was delightful. I left feeling a lot more comfortable in my pelvis and relaxed. I will come back soon for another session. Thank you Shelly.”
