Mother Honouring Services
I create a sacred space for you to truly embrace your motherhood journey.
Postpartum practices offer a level of holistic healing for a new mama’s mind, body, and soul that is unparalleled.
Birth is an amazing and intense journey. A woman’s body goes through a lot of hard work to bring a child into the world. Through all this work she is opening to ‘release our baby’. Afterwards, this openness may remain present and leave a feeling of emptiness after birthing. As a woman’s body has been a vessel for her little one for many months, she may experience this sense of emptiness once she has completed the birthing process.
With this gentle yet powerful closing ceremony for women in their first year of motherhood, I pull the mother “together” on many levels. It’s a beautiful way to close the birthing process and celebrate the mother, welcoming her into her new role.
No one needs mothering more than a new mother.
Being a new mama is an incredible experience and it’s also pretty demanding.
I help you be with your experience and find ease in your mind and body with a replenishing therapeutic massage. Your new-mama aches and tight muscles will melt away and you’ll walk away feeling energised. You’re welcome to bring your little one with you (up to six months) as there’ll be plenty of time to feed, settle or comfort your baby during your massage.

“After our baby boy Rumi was born, I had the honour of receiving Marta’s post- partum healing/closing ceremony. As it was five days after birth, I wanted my tribe of women, who had closely supported me through my pregnancy, to be there as well. Marta made the drive to our house in Katikati to accommodate us, setting up the space beautifully for the ceremony. I found Marta’s sacred energy to be so full of love and compassion. Guiding my tribe of women to close, let go, and seal my body back together after childbirth was emotionally beautiful. I have also experienced Marta’s massage’s in my last trimester and let’s just say “I was snoring away on the table”. Once again, the space and energy were so relaxing. I feel incredibly grateful our paths have crossed.”
