Service Description

Massage during the postpartum stage is very beneficial in inducing relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief, hormone regulation, reduced swelling, better sleep, and improve breastfeeding. The first 40 days after giving birth are called The Quarentena, during this time you should take extra care of yourself to help with your recovery and bond with baby. A massage can greatly support the healing of your physical body as well as your emotional being. This session is 1 hr. - 1.5hrs of hands-on massage. This gives you enough time to move and turn over and not feel rushed. You may receive a postpartum massage regardless of the type of birth you had (vaginal, cesarean, medicated, unmedicated). If you are breastfeeding, you are welcome to have baby join us during the massage and feed while I continue to work, or we can pause if we need to. Your massage will conclude with a belly binding. I will bring all of the materials needed including sheets, oils, and belly bind. The massage will be provided on your bed. If you do not feel comfortable working on your bed, I have a floor mat we can use to work on the floor. Please book a Free Postpartum Consultation if you wish to learn more about postpartum care available. FAQ; How soon can I receive massage after birth? -It is safe for you to receive body work as soon as you feel comfortable. If you plan to wear a belly bind within the first 40 days it would be most beneficial to have your first session within the first 5-10 days postpartum. Anytime within the first 40days is highly recommended, however your comfort is most important so you get to decide. Can I receive a massage if I had a vaginal birth or a Cesarean? -The type of birth you had only reflects in how your massage is given and not IF it is given. You will always have a conversation with your therapist before beginning your massage to ensure your body is honored and respected for comfort and relaxation. What if I don't have help at home and my baby needs me? -Your baby is welcome to join us during our time together. Sometimes baby just wants to be near mom and that is okay. I can work around them if they want to be on you or next to you. If we need to pause so you can calm them down or feed them that is okay also. Do you have postpartum massage packages? -I no longer provide just massage packages, all postpartum massage is purchased as individual services. The only postpartum packages available are for full postpartum doula care.
