My experience with HandHeld Postpartum services was remarkable! After having an emergency C-section, I was looking for a service that could help me heal, give me comfort and help me to relax. In my first session I met with Shannon, the lactation consultant, and she was extremely compassionate and knowledgable. She addressed all my breastfeeding concerns and helped me understand my baby’s needs as well.
The next three visits were with Nilo the doula. Nilo has a way of immediately making a person feel at ease. Her warmth and compassion are inviting from the moment you meet her. After my C section, I was longing for some comfort and all of her services gave me just that! Her healing touch helped me relax after all the stress my body had experienced. The essential oils and herbs, along with the detox custom bath mixture is just divine! Nilo has a unique gift of providing genuine empathy and compassion in all her sessions. She has a calming and professional attitude and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for deep relaxation.
My favorite service was a belly binding technique called Bengkung Belly Binding. This not only gave me postural support but also helped my healing process in a natural way. Hand Held Postpartum's knowledge of various cultures around the world is what makes their business and services unique. Their extensive knowledge of the specific plants and herbs they used, and their healing powers was very impressive. Another ancient healing practice used on me, was a Vaginal Steam. I felt the benefit of this therapeutic treatment immediately! Every single visit and every service provided me helped my emotional and physical recovery from my birth. In the last session, they do a beautiful Closing of the Bones ceremony. After a long 9 months of pregnancy with various problems and a very strenuous labor, this ceremony was the perfect way to embrace the journey my body had been through. In this service, they provided such a nurturing and supportive environment and allowed me to lie quietly and reflect on the pregnancy, and particularly the very vulnerable moments of my labor and birth, both psychologically and physically. It helped me find some closure and truly helped me embrace the new stages of motherhood.
I highly recommend this company if you are looking for knowledgeable professionals who are experts in assisting and providing a mother with physical and emotional support! -Roohina Diwan
