Postnatal Mama Massage
You can only take care of others when you take care of yourself first
The weeks and months after birth form a unique phase in a woman’s live. It is a phase in which self care is more important than ever.
During pregnancy and vaginal birth your body has delivered a top performance, and both after vaginal birth and c-section, your body needs ample time, rest and relaxation to physically recover. Massage can be very supportive of your recovery process in many ways:
- Massage stimulates blood flow, which enables both the supply of nutrients and oxygen to the whole of the body, and the clears the body of its waste products.
- Massage helps to balance and support blood flow to the hormone producing organs, which can support both a more stable hormonal balance, as well as contribute to your emotional and mental well-being.
- Massage enables you to rest and relax in a deep and profound way, to balance those broken nights.
- The massage pays explicit attention to the relaxation of the shoulder and upper back area, which may feel tense as a result of the many (breast)feeding times.
Not just a massage:
In short, a postnatal Mama massage will support both your physical, hormonal, mental and emotional recovery after birth.
