The 4th Trimister

Welcome to this beautiful time of postpartum, a time traditionally spent on relaxing, healing and bonding with your baby. As women and mothers we often forget to care for ourselves and in turn don't pay much mind to postpartum or the "4th trimester." 

We are here to change that notion and make this time a beautiful one for you and your new baby. Our goal is to help you have a successful start to healing your body so you can focus on bonding with your baby. 

Just like it takes time to grow a baby, it takes time to heal the body. 


We have set up a weekly meeting schedule spread out  through the 6 weeks postpartum period.


Our lactation consultant will be visiting you days after you have delivered your precious baby. She will be helping with latch and different positions for nursing. Along side this she will bring along herbs, broth and teas known to increase milk production in lactating women.


Session 1 & 2

On this first and second visit you will receive a postnatal massage followed by belly binding using the bengkung method who's roots are from Malaysia. We will proceed with a uterine massage and hot stone womb therapy.


Session 3

 This visit will be all about taking a moment for yourself. You will be given a demonstration on infant massage. You will also have an opportunity to get some much needed "me" time. Our doula will set up a beautiful relaxing detox sitz bath for you while she tends to your baby.

Session 4

This week you will get to enjoy a warming turmeric facial and body scrub. Turmeric is known to heal inflammation. It holds soothing properties that are great to rejuvenate and bring color back into your skin after birth.


Session 5

On this visit we will be bringing warmth back into your womb with a vaginal stream. Steaming is used by many cultures to help release any impurities left after the birth and to heal the vaginal area. It has been used for centuries to help women not only in postpartum recovery but also in fertility, late pregnancy and even during birth!


Session 6

Our last session together is all about closure. We will be doing a rosewater bath pour over. In many traditions this special ritual bath is performed to signify the end of the 40 day period. After, we will do a closing of the bones ceremony and saying farewell to your postpartum journey. This is a time of celebration for ourselves as women and for our body. It is a time to thank our bodies for doing a beautiful job in carrying and caring for our baby.
