Growing, laboring, and giving birth to your baby is a wonderful thing but it can also be a struggle at times. Birth is monumental for mom and baby on a physical level as well as mental and emotional. As mothers, our bodies go through such a transformation during pregnancy and birth. Postpartum is the time to rest and heal and adjust to life with a new baby and we can help! Receive therapeutic bodywork through gentle touch to help your body recover and heal following any kind of birth.
