Our packages focus on keeping you healthy and nourished during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period with the wisdom of a natural, holistic approach to pregnancy and birth. Each support package blends traditional approaches to caring for your mind, body and emotions, whatever your approach to medical care and options may be. All packages include referrals and resources for additional informational support.
After the excitement and preparations for birth, comes the adventure of integrating your newborn into your life! There are many transitions that come in these first few days: your uterus shrinks at a rapid rate, your breasts become engorged as lactation begins, your vagina heals from the stretching of birth, your kidneys and liver are now processing a sudden and large influx of hormones, and it is a time to adjust to a new sleep pattern.
Traditional Womb Massage & Belly Binding
Belly wrapping is an ancient postpartum ritual from the Indonesia and Malaysia and other nearby regions. In Ayurveda, Vata dosha, or the energy of wind, can easily be thrown out of balance postpartum. Vata may go out of balance due to birth trauma, sleep deprivation, imbalanced digestion or elimination, and other postpartum symptoms. Having a physical support around your lower chakras allows you to relax energetically. Combined with a womb massage of a warming blend of topical herbs, this extra support helps you to feel nurtured and physically supported with the benefits of this celebratory ritual to revel in your amazing postpartum womb!
For prospective "out-of-town" clients, you can be supported at a distance using phone and personal visits to provide care. For more information, please visit our Travelling Doula page.
