birth prep + birth support

Birth Prep Massage:

This is a gentle, supportive way to work with your body to encourage it to let go and move into labor. This a blend of massage and acupressure, this treatment focuses on your individual needs as you reach "full term" and supports the natural progression of your body preparing for birth. We take a lot into consideration when scheduling this treatment. If this is your first session, we recommend a 90 minute treatment. If you have been coming in regularly, a 60 minute is great but you can always add time. We encourage this session for all kinds of birth, including anyone preparing for a scheduled induction or surgical birth. It can be wonderful form of self care the day or (days) before your scheduled date and supports recovery. 


Partners Massage:

We have two treatment rooms at our wellnest so partners will often come in together to be seen at the same time or back to back with one therapist. The rooms can also be opened up to form a partners suite if you prefer to be in the same space. This is often a favorite treatment as you get ready for birth. We also have partners switch off with the baby in our lounge and come in together postpartum or during the first few months with a new baby at home. You may gift one of your discount package sessions to your partner or friend and come in together!

Private Birth Prep Workshop:

Our Private Birth Prep Workshop teaches your partner(s/anyone who will be present at your birth) tools and techniques that are helpful for not only relieving discomforts of pregnancy but specific techniques + comfort measures to support your whole birth experience!

2 hour workshop: $150 (per family)

Birth doula support?

We offer a free Doula Info Night every other month if you would like to find out more details and learn more about the individual birth support and doula packages we offer. You can also contact any practitioner individually to learn more about their doula services. Typically packages include two meetings with families before birth, day of birth and one postpartum visit. 


Labor Massage:

Already have a doula but think you might want some extra hands on support? We can come during early labor, while you're home, maybe before your doula arrives so they can rest up. We can help you relax maybe even help you sleep so you can settle into your labor rhythm. We can join you during active labor as another set of hands for some extra physical support as you work hard through your surges. We can meet you at your home or hospital and give your support team a break. Although many of us are also birth doulas, as certified prenatal massage therapists, we can offer this unique type of support and join you for 2, 4 or 6 hours during your labor (which is different than the consistent, physical, emotional and informational support, before during and after birth that a doula provides). We like to give many options for our clients to help meet everyone needs and find this to be a great addition to other types of birth support.

We know the postpartum period (or early months/first year with a new babe) can be quite the transition. Hopefully, it's filled with a lot of support but it's often after the new normal has settled in, we find we still need that support and community. We offer ongoing wellness sessions for parents, as well as, support groups and community events to encourage us all to find our support systems.

"If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it-through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated."

-Victoria Moran

We offer a diverse list of support for every stage; preparing for parenthood, becoming parents for the first time or doing it all over again.

We hope you find a space here to pause + recenter so you can go back out, experience wonder and spread your joy.
