Sacred Blessings

The Sacred Art of Belly Binding

The wrapping of mamas belly is an effective aid in the recovery of the body after delivery. The belly wrap is an important 360 degree supportive tool, which maintains pressure to the torso and abdomen that no mama should be without.
All of the core is supported aiding in the re-positioning of the vital organs, maintaining the stability of the loosened ligaments, holding the abdominal wall in a way that allows for strengthening and preventing diastasis, as well as, improving posture and alignment through the spine and pelvis.
The wrapping of mamas belly helps the postpartum mama feel supported through her transition back into her pre-pregnancy body. It will help to reduce any discomfort or straining while carrying or lifting her baby. It will provide the back with support that mama didn't realize she needed during breastfeeding her baby helping to reduce the slumped over or slouching posture.
Many women continue to wrap themselves for years after delivery it is not only beneficial to the support and recovery of a postpartum mama but it feels great too!

Prenatal and Postnatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage has amazing benefits to both mother and baby during pregnancy.  Massage during pregnancy can help to relieve moms discomfortsfrom the physical, emotional and hormonal changes she is constantly going through.  We must remember mom isn’t the only one going through these constant changes, your baby is growing and changing at a tremendous rate as well! 
Prenatal massage naturally stimulates the release of endorphin’s for relaxation,these endorphin’s cross the placenta allowing for the baby to receive thesame relaxation as its mom.  Essentially the prenatal massage intended to help mom is positively effecting the baby as well.  Your baby feels what you feelfrom anxiety, stress and tension, give them the advantage of a warm and loving environment both before and after birth!

Postnatal Massage

The postpartum period is a important time for the mother to remember that honoring herself encourages quicker healing, and better mental state. Postpartum massage not only promote relaxation but also increases flexibility of muscles and the tense nerves. This can help with mother’s milk production and induce good sleep. Enjoy a postpartum massage and reduce your stress hormone, and reduce fluid retention.

Why a waterbirth?

Why choose a waterbirth? What are the benefits of baby's transition from water to water? What are the benefits for mom?
  • Promotes deeper relaxation and minimizes pain and discomforts of labor. When a woman is relaxed her hormones kick in and she starts progressing faster and with more rhythm, which in turn makes the labor more efficient
  • Warm water relaxes the muscles, which will relax the pelvic floor muscles
  • The relaxation and pain relief felt when submerged in the warm water can be more effective and definitely more safer than an epidural
  • Reduces the chance of an episiotomy, as the water softens the tissues surrounding the perineum, making them more pliable and able to stretch
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Gentle welcome for baby
We our proud to offer birth tub rentals for women wanting to experience the joys of a waterbirth. We cater to homebirths, birth centers, and hospitals.
