Mother Baby Bonding

Postpartum Home Visits

The postpartum time is full of many things. Love, snuggles, feeding, changing, sleeping, possibly (probably) tears.. the list goes on. It's nothing if not a

whirlwind. And sometimes it can be really hard to get out of the house! 

     In-home postpartum massage can help to support your recovery from pregnancy, labour, and all the aches and pains that can come with being a new parent.

            You don't even have to leave the house! (as it should be)

     Massage and cranial sacral therapy can also be helpful for your baby during the postpartum time as they transition to life on the outside. 

 

      Infant massage is beneficial for your baby's development in a variety of ways. And learning how to give your little one a massage at home can be a special way to bond (we can teach you how to do the massage part!)

     Birth is a massive event for your baby's little body! And transitioning to the outside world can be daunting. Massage and cranial sacral therapy can be therapeutic for both you & your baby's recovery from birth address your baby's needs.
