postpartum + new parenthood

Postpartum Massage 

We consider the postpartum time to be at least the first full year after birth, although many of the major changes are happening within the first few months, some changes take more time. Postpartum healing, on all levels can happen even years after birth! Your body is usually in need of some nurturing support right after birth, however we schedule this on a case by case basis to offer you a personalized treatment that looks different as you move throughout your post birth experience. Read more below for details.

New Parenthood Massage 

This is an important time to recharge for birthing people but also for non birth parents as well! This transitional time often comes with lack of sleep, and many changes in our normal, every day patterns.

Our wellness massage treatments focus on supporting new parents through this transformation.

Postpartum Doula Support

Postpartum doulas are specifically trained and experienced to offer physical, emotional, and educational support after childbirth or during the first few months with a new baby. Your postpartum doula will meet you at your home, in a birth center or a hospital and offer care for a specific amount of time as you transition to parenthood (or parenting again). We do not provide medical support. We provide non-biased, evidenced based information and resources and but ultimately, you are the only one making decisions about what is best for you and your family. We offer postpartum doula packages!

Infant massage classes

We understand that babies don't often follow a specific routine, especially in the beginning so we work around their needs. You may come just you + babe or bring your partner and/or any care-givers in your family/tribe are welcome to join you. This class is about an hour long and can be a one time class to learn basic techniques or we also offer a more in depth series of 4 that you can do 4 weeks in a row or spaced out over 4 months. 

One time class: $50 (group) $100 (private)

Pack of (4): $150 (per family)

Can I use a prenatal session (discount package session) toward a postpartum session?

Simple answer is: Yes, of course! Keep in mind that we do take a lot into consideration when scheduling your initial Postpartum Massage, so if you are on the books for a Birth Preparation Massage but you birth before your appointment, make sure to text or call us to check in before coming in for a Postpartum Massage to discuss best time for YOU to come in. In this particular case, we extend the discount amount for 2 months from when you have your baby to use the final session (even if you purchased the package 3 months prior). We love to encourage the first 6 weeks to be home and cuddled up with nowhere to go if possible and don't want you to feel like you have to rush in. We offer home visits for this reason so you can always pick this option in the early weeks. You can apply the paid discount amount to the Home Visit session fee so you would only pay the difference. After the 2 month extension, if you still weren't able to come in, you have one month to apply the discounted amount so you only pay the difference. After that, the session does expire. We consider the postpartum time to be at least the first full year after birth, although many of the major changes are happening within the first few months, some shifts take more time (9 months of changes during pregnancy should allow for at least 9 months of changes on the other end). Postpartum healing, on all levels can happen even years after birth so you can always purchase another discount package specially for the postpartum time to come in weekly. 

 

How soon after birth can I come in?

It's different for everyone but some people want to be seen very soon after birth, sometimes even day of (usually as a home visit or hospital visit). Your body is usually in need of some nurturing support right after birth, however we schedule this on a case by case basis to offer you a personalized treatment that looks different as you move throughout your post birth experience. We believe that gentle, soothing touch in the very beginning can be incredibly helpful after your body has worked so hard during birth. We move into more therapeutic sessions in the following weeks/months to come. Many people like to get settled a bit before coming in. For a birth canal birth, a massage can be within the first few days, for a surgical birth, we ask that you wait at least a couple weeks and then you may begin easing into your postpartum sessions. That being said, everyone is different and it really depends on how you're feeling and your individual birth experience. We offer breast/chest/belly pillow support for you, especially in the first few months if you are want to get on your belly (YAY, finally!) or you can be cozy with pillows on your side and on you back, whatever is most comfortable for you.

 

Can I bring my baby?

You are more than welcome to bring your baby with you. They might even get the relaxation memo and sleep the whole session, if not, that's perfectly fine. Many people find it to be a sweet bonding time together, a healing experience to embrace the 4th trimester and a closing ritual. Your babe may be with you on the table, you can nurse them during or have them sleep next to you while you are on your side. They can also be in a lounger or blanket in the room near you or loved one can hang with them in our waiting lounge during your session. We understand if you want to get settled and come by yourself for some alone time! Everyone is different. We celebrate SELF CARE in all forms and just want you to know you have lots of options if you don't have childcare but still want to come in for a treatment. We get creative with positioning and of course, we are flexible with your needs and baby's needs as well.

Do you offer infant massage classes? 

We do! We usually recommend scheduling an infant massage class during a time that baby is contently alert so if they just had a great feed and nap right before (here's hoping) then that would be a prefect time to do some infant massage techniques. We understand that babies don't often follow a specific routine, especially in the beginning so we work around their needs. You may come just you + babe(s) or bring your partner(s) and/or any care-givers in your family are welcome to join you for this private class. You will be the only ones massaging your baby. We will be guiding you through techniques on a baby doll. These techniques are geared to support bonding + connecting,  bath + bed time rituals, easing digestion discomfort and so much more! We also offer small group classes (perfect if you have friends with babies around the same age that want to learn together). We offer this at our center or in the comfort of your own home as a fun new parent gathering/baby play date, or virtual. This class is about an hour long and can be a one time class to learn basic techniques or we also offer a more in depth series of 4 that you can do 4 weeks in a row or spaced out over 4 months.
