The postpartum period is a delicate time for a new mama. After delivery a woman’s physical body goes through a tremendous shift and daily life is more demanding with caring of an infant combined with sleep deprivation. In some cultures around the world the time following the birth of your baby is seen as sacred, known as the confinement period. Confinement practices are traditional postnatal practices aimed at helping a new mum recover from the rigours of pregnancy, labour and birth. A time when a new mother must rest deeply and be cared for by others so that she can regain her physical and emotional strength and recover from pregnancy and childbirth.
Postpartum massage helps ease aches, pains, stress, fatigue, and postpartum depression. It promotes relaxation, helping new mamas sleep better. It also helps the body return to its pre-pregnancy state and improves blood circulation. Overall, postnatal massage promotes a new mama's emotional, mental and physical well-being.
The massage can be arranged with the baby close to you so there will be time allowances for baby cuddles. Better yet, arrange a time when your partner is home to mind the baby while you have time to yourself.
Allow yourself to be nurtured and supported as you make the huge transition into motherhood with Bliss Mama Massage.
