Meal preparation and planning
This one-of-a-kind service includes sitting down and creating a menu plan just for your family before baby’s arrival (or after). Service can include grocery shopping with partner, grandma, or any significant other; then cooking meals in your home with siblings or partners or anyone who wants to help (or no one.) The meals can be made to be frozen, or just planned-out in an easy guide to follow. Meals can be planned around specific dietary requirements and preferences. Please inquire about packages!
Private consultations can be booked for a variety of reasons: pre-conception counseling, nutrition support, breastfeeding basics, cloth diapering, baby wearing, postpartum preparation, comfort techniques and many more. If you are looking for some guidance, or maybe just some help reviewing your choices and preferences for your labor, we would love to meet with you. Please contact us if you are interested in a consultation for the topic(s) of your choice.
Postpartum Belly Binding
Bengkung Belly Binding is an ancient art of wrapping the abdomen shortly after giving birth and into the postpartum period. The support of the wrap gives the healing belly extra support and stability as the uterus begins to shrink and the stomach organs begin to move back to normal positions. Additionally, the wrap helps keep the torso and the rest of the body secure and in balance. Belly binding can be a great helper when breastfeeding, as it supports the rib cage and middle back as well.
Even pressure is applied throughout the wrap as it goes around the entire abdominal cavity and in return supports the back and posture. Each session involves a warm belly rub with therapeutic herbs to aid in the healing process as well as self-instruction for further wrapping.
Mayan Abdominal Massage
Mayan abdominal massage is a traditional Mayan technique, typically performed by midwives. The massage is an external, non-invasive, slow and gentle massage of the abdominal region and uterus. It is intended to increase circulation and restore the proper position of the uterus and other abdominal organs that may shift for a variety of reasons.
An out of place uterus can cause many symptoms that women suffer from every day: painful or irregular periods, abnormal bleeding, infertility issues, endometriosis, fibroids, cramps, varicose veins, tired/weak/numb legs, pelvic inflammation, chronic miscarriages, painful intercourse, and much more. The massage can be valuable to women of all ages.
