Wise Womb Massage for Prenatal Care & Pregnancy
We have developed our own beautiful and specific bodywork technique and healing style to support the mother-to-be, throughout all the stages of pregnancy.
First Trimester - We focus on softening the back muscles, using plant prayers, supporting the emotional and spiritual aspects of the mother to be. It is contra-indicated to apply pressure to the womb area of the belly during this stage of pregnancy, so, rather than working directly on the womb, I apply light pressure into the spaces around the womb, gently coaxing her to be in optimal alignment. During this stage we can support the mother-to-be to relax, to breathe, and to connect to the spirit of the baby growing in her womb.
Second Trimester - In this stage we begin to work more directly with the womb, lower back, hips and pelvis, keeping them in optimal position for carrying in a more comfortable way (less acid reflux, less edema, less pain). We also work continuing to connect with the spirit of the growing baby, as well as supporting the woman through this initiation into motherhood. Using all of my many modalities throughout this stage is very supportive for the mother-to-be, holding her in sacred space to feel loved, revered and honored.
Third Trimester - In this stage of pregnancy we work directly with the womb and the sacrum, hips, pelvis and lower back, ensuring the womb is in optimal position at this stage is very important for ease of carrying, resulting in more comfort throughout the last stage of pregnancy as well as for the birthing experience. Ceremony comes in more deeply towards the end of this stage, preparing the mother's spirit and body for labor.
We see you as a whole being, rather than the sum of your parts, so throughout pregnancy we will check in around the whole that is you and your life, including nutrition, self-care, and emotional/spiritual well being.
