NATURAL PREGNANCY MASSAGE & POSTNATAL SUPPORT

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. – Rajneesh
What is Natural Pregnancy & Postnatal Support?
Natural pregnancy massage & postnatal support is a combination of Midwifery skills and knowledge, Natural Therapies, such as the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, and other modalities to help you feel prepared for birth and beyond. In these sessions you will receive massage for pregnancy or postnatal recovery, and perhaps herbs, supplements, essences and so forth according to your individual needs at the time. I take the time necessary to listen to your concerns and to help you through them. Since I am a Midwife as well as a Natural Therapist, I am able to help you on many levels and answer your questions. What I do is specific to pregnancy and postnatal recovery and as such is not harmful in anyway. I am able to assist you to have a better birth and recovery by preparing your body for these events. What I can do for you is not just a “pregnancy massage” but a treatment that encompasses the whole person.
Who could benefit from Natural Pregnancy Massage & Postnatal Support?
- If you are pregnant, you have ligament pain, heartburn, oedema, fear of birth, premature births, baby is not in a good position for birth or other concerns.
- If you have had a baby, you have had a difficult, traumatic labour and/or birth, an instrumental birth, a caesarean birth, an episiotomy, tearing, suturing, coccydynia, diastasis recti or other issues.
How is this different from a Pregnancy Massage with a Massage Therapist?
I do not just do massage, because I am also a Midwife and Natural Therapist I can help you in other ways besides just massaging you. In this way I can assist you with your body’s preparation for giving birth or if you have already given birth, I can assist your body to recover.
