Prenatal & Postnatal Support
Pregnancy, birth, and the first few weeks after you bring your baby home are some of the most beautiful but also most challenging experiences you will go through in your life. This time in a woman’s life is truly transformational. It is a time of emotional growth, reflection, excitement and wonder. It is also a time of responsibility, when we have to take the best care of ourselves, both physically and emotionally, so that we can have the healthiest pregnancy and the healthiest baby possible.
Our Pre- & Postnatal Support Packages are specifically designed to nourish and guide the mother-to-be. During our many appointments together we will devise a customized plan to keep your body in the best possible shape, while nourishing your baby and taking care of your emotional growth as a mother.
We offer three levels of Packages: Basic, Standard and Deluxe, varying in cost, number of sessions, and number of appointments available at the client’s home.
Basic Package consists of 16 one-and-a-half-hour-long appointments: 10 prenatal (inclusive of two partner birth prep sessions) and 6 postnatal (including two infant massage instruction sessions). The price of the package includes two home visits.
Roughly 60 minutes of each appointment is dedicated to a nurturing massage, while the remaining 30 minutes is spent discussing topics ranging from healthy lifestyle (nutrition, exercise, relaxation techniques, spiritual wellbeing) to preparation for birth and motherhood.
Additionally, during the period covered by your Pre- & Postnatal Support Package you may book any extra massages/sessions at 20% discount and you will receive continuous support over email.
Standard Package offers similar benefits to the Basic Package but consists of five more sessions for the total of 21 sessions: 12 prenatal and 9 postnatal (including 3 infant massage instruction sessions). The price of this package includes three home visits.
Deluxe Package offers the same benefits as the Standard Package but all appointments are two-hours-long and you may choose to have them all in the comfort of your home.

Happy Mama, Healthy Baby!
During pregnancy a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Prenatal Massage helps ease the pain and discomfort associated with the changes taking place in a woman's body. It also improves breathing, reduces stress and leads to general relaxation.
We offer two types of Prenatal Massage, each with its own unique benefits: the classical Western-style massage (Mama-West) and Eastern-style massage (Mama-East).
Our Signature Prenatal Mama-East Massage is deeply rooted in Eastern massage techniques. It incorporates elements of Thai, Japanese and Chinese massage techniques to help ease the pain and discomfort of pregnancy. It can be nurturing or therapeutic and is always adapted to meet the needs of the expecting mother and her baby.
The Prenatal Mama-West Massage is primarily based on the Swedish massage technique with elements of Deep Tissue and Trigger Point work. It is deeply relaxing both for the mother and the baby.
Let your happy hormones nurture your baby!
Postpartum Abdominal Massage
Postpartum Abdominal Massage is specifically designed to help women heal faster from the trauma of vaginal birth. It involves massaging the abdominal and pelvic area to support cleansing of the uterus from extra endometrial lining.
Abdominal massage also facilitates realignment of the internal organs misplaced during the pregnancy and increases blood flow to the area, speeding up physical, as well as emotional healing.
Cesarean Birth Scar Massage
Our Signature Cesarean Birth Scar Massage is specifically designed for women who gave birth through C-section. It involves massaging both the surgical scar and its surrounding areas to avoid the build up of scar tissue and adhesions that can ultimately restrict a full return to health.
Pelvic organ dysfunction, scar pain, sensations of restriction, lower back pain, and even infertility are commonly associated with C-section surgery and are largely due to post-surgical adhesions. Cesarean Birth Scar Massage helps to break these unwanted adhesions preventing long-term health problems. It also increases blood flow to the abdomen and the pelvic area, speeding up healing after the pregnancy and birth.
Please wait until your Cesarean Birth Scar heals before you book this appointment.
Being a new mom is hard! Bring your body back into alignment with this restorative massage fully customized to your body's needs. While we work on your physical ailments, allow yourself to take a break, get pampered, relax, and reconnect with your pre-Mama self.
Caring human touch is crucial for the health and thriving of the baby. The benefits of massaging your infant include improved growth and development of the brain and nervous system, strengthening of the immune system, and increased quality of sleep. Additionally, the massage of the abdominal area improves the function of the digestive system, helps reduce gas and “colic.” It is also a wonderful way for parents to connect with their baby.
During the session, we will go over the basics of Infant Massage and together we will design a 10-minute massage sequence specifically optimized for your infant. At the end of our appointment you will be able to perform this 10-minute massage on your baby.
