Once you have given birth, more attention goes to the baby and less to you. However as a new mom, you need to be mothered yourself and I like to do this as a postnatal doula by offering you emotional support/counselling, postnatal yoga, massage and herbal steam. I also introduce you to baby massage, baby yoga and baby swimming.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A POSTNATAL SESSION?
During the intake session we explore your birthing experience. Was the birth and passage into motherhood an ec-static or a traumatic experience? Whatever it might be, it is stored in your subconscious mind and defines the relation with your baby, your partner and ultimately with yourself. You have given birth to a baby while you gave birth to yourself as a mother!
