Postpartum Treatment

Spoil yourself after birth

You can only take care of others when you take care of yourself first

The post partum phase, is the period directly after birth. In this special period, both mental and physical recovery and relaxation are key and it is extra important to take good care of yourself and let yourself be spoiled. How to better do this than with our new and special Post Partum Treatment? Especially designed to give newly born moms all that they need, this special treatment will help your body close, recover and relax. During the treatment you will receive a:

  • Moxa stick treatment to warm up body, to aid digestion and help hormon relaxin flow out of the body allowing your body to close after birth in optimal way,
  • Rectus muscles check – to see if your belly muscles have moved back together after birth, if there is a gap, tips how to support closing and avoid opening (everyday habits, baby holding, postpartum breathing exercise)
  • Relaxing & soft massage (of back, neck, and shoulders)
  • Gentle belly massage focused to aid digestion and help your organs to find their place where they used to be before pregnancy
  • Feet massage for relaxation and grounding, feeling stability at your feet
  • Bekung belly binding to support natural healing and closing after birth

Bengkung belly binding is the art of wrapping a postpartum women’s belly and hips for physical and emotional support and to support the recovery process after childbirth. The Bengkung belly binding technique is rooted in Malaysian culture; however, various countries and cultures around the world use a form of belly binding after birth to help support the healing process.  This belly binding technique uses a long strip of cloth to wrap around the abdomen from the hips to the ribcage. Women are traditionally wrapped as soon after birth as possible, but we recommend from day 7 or 9th and then worn for 40 days or longer as needed. The best time to do this is in the 6 weeks after birth so that can help the organs move back in place more easily.  It is recommended that the bind is worn for up to 12 hours and then taken off for 12 hours.  This allows a “training” of the woman’s body.

In short this special post partum treatment will help you to ease into the transition to motherhood and to set yourself up for both physical recovery and a mindful and conscious start of your post partum period.

The treatment lasts for 2 hrs and takes place at your home. It can be booked from your 7th day post partum onwards. Even after 6 months this treatment is still effective in helping you close the beautiful phase of pregnancy.

I received the post part treatment a week after i gave birth to my lovely son. It was a fast birth and my body and mind were still processing what had happened. The soft and loving massage by Anita helped me to relax and soften into the new motherhood experience. I was amazed about the heat of the moxa stick and how it helped my belly relax after experiencing contractions for days after I gave birth. My treatment was sealed with the Bekung Belly Binding. The tightness of the bind gave me a great feeling; supported, strong and safe. I can highly recommend this treatment quite soon after birth as my belly felt so strange and empty and this really helped me to find a new balance. For me, the combination of moxa therapy, massage and the belly binding is amazing – it really works effectively to close the phase pf pregnancy and enter the new stage of motherhood.
