Postpartum Experience

Copy of OUR DOULA PACKAGING (6)_edited_e

Designed to indulge new mothers in a deeply warming, soul nourishing ayurvedic postpartum experience.

We can adopt the essence of many cultures when it comes to post birth recovery and care.

The first forty days following birth is a precious time that can be overlooked. For many it is so significant that it is considered the fourth trimester

Carving out the space to give this period the attention it deserves creates a cocoon in which to heal, bond and rest, softening the transition to motherhood and later, when ready, into the world.

The world can wait

  • What is a Closing of the Bones Ceremony?
    During pregnancy and birth our physical bodies and energy fields expand at peak levels. A Closing of the Bones Ceremony acknowledges new mothers following their birth. This is done by wrapping long scarves or rebozo’s from head to toe resembling a grounded warm embrace. A gentle ceremony that guides you back to your body, your bones into place, whilst increasing warmth and blood flow. Re-establish a sense of self through this ultimate self care and age old ritual. 
  • What is Abhyanga massage?
    Abhyanga massage is a full body massage using warm Ayurvedic herbal oils to pacify and bring balance to the nervous system. You will be gently invited into a state of deep rest and rejuvenation using long sweeping strokes with various pressure and activation of marma points. Some of the many benefits include: Reduces fatigue and promotes deep sleep Stimulates and strengthens the lymphatic system Enhances blood circulation Increases oxytocin, the loving, bonding and anti-anxiety hormone  Detoxification of the body Supports digestion
  • What is the duration of the Abhyanga massage and Closing of the Bones Ceremony? And when can I book in?
    Abhyanga warm oil massage is 80 minutes duration and recommended 21 days postpartum or 3 months post c-section. The Closing of the Bones ceremony is 90 minutes and recommended 6 weeks postpartum.
  • Can we bring our newborn along with us to the Abhyanga massage and Closing of the Bones Ceremony?
    Yes, of course your little one can join us. However, if you are fortunate on the day to have someone mind your bubba either at home or together with you, that’s great too. It may be difficult at times to hold your baby whilst receiving your treatment. Trust what feels right for you and your baby on the day.
  • Can I choose one of these above options without choosing the whole Ayurvedic Experience?
    This package has been designed with a new mother and full immersive experience in mind. It is preferred that new mothers experience the full package for optimal results. I am more than happy to discuss individual options at the time of your enquiry.
  • Can I add the Ayurvedic Postpartum Experience to my birthing support package?
    YES absolutely. This package can be added to any of my birthing support packages.
  • Have another question?
    I'd love to hear from you! m. 0400 907 370

Postpartum support

Additional appointments can be added to your package at any time during your pregnancy and postpartum journey.

Pregnancy and postpartum can be experienced as a time of great love and joy with equal amounts of adjustment and exhaustion.

Birth can also come with many unknowns. This is why I have created additional appointments so you can relax knowing that support is available when you need it the most.
