We also offer:
• Craniosacral therapy for mom and baby. This is light touch therapy that during the postpartum period helps restores musculoskeletal reintegration, emotional balance and pelvic health and helps alleviate the discomforts of newborn care and mothering. The mother can be treated while holding the baby or while the baby lies on the mother’s belly; the baby also receives treatment this way. Craniosacral therapy is even more effective for infants when the mother is simultaneously treated.
• Cold laser treatment to facilitate the healing of the pelvic floor area and mastitis by using wavelengths of light to assist the body’s healing process.
• Comprehensive pelvic floor check-up with mom at 6-8 weeks to assess healing.
• Planning session before birth to help you prepare for a physically and emotionally beautiful postpartum season
