Postpartum care and follow up to ensure the education and health of mothers is sorely needed in the United States and all over the world. It can plant the seeds for a healthy, thriving society with strong physical vigor and sound mental health.
Modern society doesn’t offer this foundation but we can change that.
In our culture, postpartum is traditionally considered to be the first 6-8 weeks after giving birth. In some traditional cultures, the mother and baby are secluded, sheltered, protected, and nurtured for the first 40 days postpartum.
Replenish and rejuvenate from the hard work of childbirth and caring for your child’s needs. We can address your recovery and what nurtures you back to wholeness and comfort in your body.

This support applies to all mothers post-pregnancy including women with grown children. (Includes Low Back/Hip Pain & Alignment )
Postpartum massage assists mothers in recovery and replenishment after giving birth. It can be a vital part of the healing process as a woman walks through the tremendous transformation that comes with motherhood. It allows for a peaceful time to find balance for the self and therefore for meeting the demands of parenting and being present to your little one/s.
The art of postpartum massage can include supporting hormonal balance, assisting the uterus to shrink back to normal size, and addressing or prevention of postpartum depression. C-section birth recovery and scar reduction massage, including instruction for self-massage, is a part of the healing services offered.
You have the option to bring your newborn baby to the session. I’ve worked with newborns and mamas on the table together many times; baby is nestled against mama’s breast in a protective cocoon of propping pillows while we work with the side-lying position.
In India, the highly skilled traditional midwives, the “dai”, bathe, massage, and feed the mother ensuring that her womb and belly heal properly and that her full health and vigor is restored before she takes on the full-time job of childrearing. Learn more about the wisdom of the dai and their sacred work.
It is much more than a pampering luxury! Therapeutic massage can be a fundamental aspect of the postpartum healing process. In many traditional cultures, it is an essential aspect of care for mothers after childbirth.
