Postpartum Massage & Myotherapy
Is your discomfort getting in the way of mum life?
Are the repetitive demands of motherhood causing stress and strain on your body?
Are you suffering from aches and pains associated with all of the carrying, rocking, feeding and holding your baby?
As you transition into the role of motherhood, and recover from birth, your body is working overtime to heal you, and nourish your baby.
Amidst the reduced sleep, nursing, fluctuating hormones, and adapting to life with a newborn, often the last thing you’re thinking of is ensuring you’re doing your pelvic floors exercises!
Just as you cared and nurtured your body during your pregnancy, it is equally as important to care for yourself now that your little one is here.
Postpartum Myotherapy and massage treatments focus on relieving your physical discomforts, whilst being aware of hormonal and emotional changes during this transition.
Performed by a NurtureLife® pregnancy & postpartum massage practitioner, beyond birth massages can be performed as soon as you wish, post vaginal birth, or two weeks (or sooner with obstetrician clearance) following a cesarean birth.
