“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
Barbara Katz Rothman
You are a mama-to-be. You have done antenatal classes, read books, and feel well-prepared for birth, but…you are uncertain about how you will cope with a new baby, and wonder what will happen once you are holding your precious bundle of joy in your arms.
I am here to support you with:
A session to assist you in creating your personal postpartum plan, to discover your wishes, and how you envision your perfect postpartum bubble.
I can help get your household sorted before the baby arrives. Leaving you with less things to worry about.
I can help you build up a loving and helpful village and support system.
The entire pregnancy and birthing process is about ‘opening’, both spiritually, mentally and physically. Once your baby is born, the body requires ‘sealing’, or closing what has been opened, and is raw and vulnerable. This is critical for proper holistic postpartum healing. Debriefing your birth story in a special space, and ceremonially honouring this sacred, new stage of your life.
This is where we introduce heat to the body on a deeper level to help a mother’s body and womb to heal and recover.
The journey of birth can take a toll on your physical and mental well-being, I can be there to support you through this.
This can be very daunting and emotional for you, while you bond with your baby and learn how to breastfeed and/or bottle-feed your wee one. I can support you and help you to achieve these milestones in ways that works for you and your baby.
Teaching you the art of bonding through sacred, loving touch with your baby.
Everyone has their own unique and wonderful parenting style, I can help support you in building up your confidence and to gains skills that will strengthen you.
You can receive delicious home-cooked meals that are specific to your postpartum care and recovery.
Organic loose leaf teas, tinctures, herbs and spices to support your body, and aid lactation.
If you are living in the Nelson/Tasman region and want to find out more about how I can support you and your family on your postpartum journey, I invite you and your partner to a free, no-obligation meeting via phone, internet, or in person.
“After birth there is a sacred window of time. A time for complete rejuvenation of woman’s physical, mental and spiritual health. A time for deep, extended bonding with her newborn. The first 42 weeks after birth set the stage for her next 42 years.”
