Ayurvedic Healing for a Sacred 4th Trimester
“Back in the day”, a birther would be surrounded by other women from her village, who’d know exactly what she needed: softness, nourishing meals, quality time with baby and loving care to help her heal. The main purpose for these women to surround the birther in her 4th Trimester was to mother the mother, so the new mother could fully focus on mothering. As your postpartum Doula, I want to do just that for you.
Ideally, the postpartum support continues for the full 42 days that the 4th Trimester counts. Baby would be sheltered in a cocoon with mama, without any exposure to the public. A Doula would be there for healing touch, nutrition support, breastfeeding support, healing tea’s, peri bottles, warm water bottles, herbal baths and belly wrapping. They would hold space, guide the birther through any rituals and maintain the healing energy in the house with soft lights, aroma and fresh air. Light house hold tasks and getting any essentials from outside are traditionally included too.
In today’s reality, such a labour intensive package simply isn’t always affordable. To meet your needs at a financially sustainable price I designed three different healing plans:
- MYRRH: 2 weeks postpartum support with 2, 3 or 4 weekly sessions. Compared to a one off day rate, MYRRH allows you £30 off for each session*. Additionally, I am on call if you need quick advise or extra hands on support.
- FRANKINCENSE: 4 weeks postpartum support with 2, 3 or 4 weekly sessions. Compared to a one off day rate, FRANKINCENSE allows you £67 off for each session*. Additionally, I am on call if you need quick advise or extra hands on support.
- GOLD: go all the way and get most value for your money with 6 weeks postpartum support, 2, 3 or 4 times a week. Compared to a one off day rate, GOLD allows you £100 off for each session*. Additionally, I am on call if you need quick advise or extra hands on support.
*Each session is a 3 hour time slot, this includes the little leverage we often need in this magical and admittedly little chaotic chapter of our lives. The minimum support of 2 weekly sessions is secured for you upon your booking, after which I will be in touch with you to talk more into detail how I can meet your needs. Baby’s due date is mostly just guess work, hence my calendar is prepared for flexible sessions (so dates are never rigid and can always be changed over what’s app, phone, e-mail, even a voice memo).
**Please note I can only take 2 birthers a month, so be sure to schedule your scared window timely.
