Postpartum care options explained:
Postpartum care per hour or day in which we see, hour by hour, what you need most to feel comfortable.This will be a combination of the key ingredients of my services as explained above.
Belly binding ritual: an ancient practice to `close the womb´ after birth. It supports your back, brings the hips back together, improves the posture and helps to restore the abdominal region. We will use a long piece of fabric to wrap or knot around the whole waist region. During the session, the mother will be explained how to bind her own belly as well, so she can wear her bind for 40 days postpartum. The ritual and wearing the bind, can be especially helpful for women who feel empty (physically or emotionally) after giving birth. This makes it a valued symbolic practice to ease the transition from pregnancy into motherhood.
The ritual can be planned from 24 hours after birth, but sometimes feels needed weeks or months later. In case of a C-section the ritual is only advised after several weeks, depending on the healing of the incision. If this is the case for you, get in touch so we will find the right moment for you to benefit of this ritual. Feel free to choose the moment that feels right for you. Personally speaking, I see the benefits of it 17 months postpartum again, because I feel a new chapter of motherhood has begun.
There is the choice of a belly binding ritual on its own, or a combination with the application of a home made Ayurvedic rub, or the use of a selection of warming stones that will help the mother post-birth.
For the Sacral energy Womb ritual I will be using little gemstones to strengthen the sacral chakra, warmed up in oil. They are chosen to release and calm emotions, restore womb health, awaken personal strength and stability. We will thank and bless the womb with this warming set of stones and use a light wrap as a first simple bind to keep the stones in position on the womb. After this, we will proceed with the belly bind ritual using the long cotton fabric and traditional wrapping techniques. The following days, you can warm the stones again before you bind your belly with the fabrics yourself. Alternatively, you can use the stones as a souvenir of your transition into motherhood and when you feel your second chakra needs attention.
The ritual takes approximately an hour. Extra sessions can be arranged if you wish help with your bind on following days as well. The costs found below are divided into the price of the different options to perform the ritual and the belly bind that you will purchase for you to keep. I will explain you how to bind yourself, as the benefits of using the belly bind will be optimal if you use the bind for a whole month postpartum.
It´s important to realize that I will not perform clinical and medical tasks or make decisions for you. I can provide information for you to make your own.
