Post natal massage

Post natal massage

The post birth period is a wonderful time filled with love, joy and presence. It's also a time when the body has just been through pregnancy and childbirth and has done a lot and now has to get used to less sleep, breastfeeding and carrying weight.

It's a new everyday life and there can be much to relate to in the new role of motherhood. Both body and mind can therefore benefit greatly from a portion of pampering and attention.

A birth - caesarean section or vaginal birth - can be a really nice experience, but it can also be hard and be a trauma for you and your body. With a newborn baby, it can be hard to see how to find back to your own self with excess and joy. Perhaps you feel sad and discouraged. Perhaps you have a lot of pain, which is due to loss of sleep, lack of rest and from carrying on extra kilos 24/7. It may be that you have lost a lot of blood during your childbirth and therefore you feel a loss of energy. Post birth massage can help you find the joy back and give you excess and energy so you can be there for your newborn.

HOW IS A POST natal MASSAGE GOING ON?

You can book an post birth massage in the morning hours between 9:00 and 12:00. You are welcome to take a child-minder down to the clinic where there is a couch and hot tea on the keg, or you can have your baby in the lift with you in the treatment room.

Before you arrive, it's important that your baby is well fed, have a clean diaper and is calm. In some cases, we may have to interrupt the massage if your baby is too sad.

For the sake of the other customers in the clinic we can only offer one post birth massage at a time.

You can book a post birth massage of up to 30 minutes. If you want a longer treatment, we recommend that you get a baby-sitter, so that you have the opportunity to be present and enjoy your treatment the full time.
