Birth: Recovery Care Services ~ Physiologic Postpartum Carefor the Birth Giver -- "Mother Roasting" / Warming & more ~
Physiologic recovery care services are available to anyone who has given birth (including those who were not my Birth Doula clients). These services are intended specifically to nurture mind, body, & spirit; support physical, hormonal, energetic, and emotional wellness; and facilitate recovery from pregnancy and birthing. While they are especially recommended during the first year after giving birth, I am happy to offer any of the practices which birth givers wish to experience beyond the first year postpartum.
Services provided will include:
Check-in to see how the birth giver is doing and what her needs and wishes are for that day
Physiologic care, which will include at least one of the following services:
herbal sitz baths;
castor oil packs;
moxibustion (herbal warming);
hip or hip+belly wrapping offerings;
gentle movement &/or other simple self-care practice instruction; &/or
"closing the bones" (gentle body hugging performed with fabric at various points along the body).
