Nurturing the New Mother
The ULTIMATE Pamper package providing the new mother with 20 hours of holistic postnatal support, care & nourishment in the comfort of her own home
It’s so important to remember that a new mother is experiencing a world full of first time’s, just as her newborn is. During pregnancy, it’s so normal to ask the mother-to-be how she is but often the focus shifts straight to baby after the birth. But this is the moment to honour the new mother for the incredible achievement of creating a new life. Her body has changed in fantastic ways, as has her mind and heart as she has transitioned into the mother of the child she has carried.
Our pamper package puts the new mother at the heart of this experience, honouring her & supporting her as she recovers from pregnancy & birth, rejuvenating her mind-body-soul as she enters this new phase of motherhood.
The PAMPER PACKAGE contains the following incredible treatments & support…
Postnatal Recovery Massage, based on Ecuadorian 'Closing the Bones'
During pregnancy, labour & birth, the body changes in remarkable ways – the uterus grows, the pelvis tips forward, muscles & ligaments lengthen, the pelvic floor & vagina open & stretch. Once the baby is born, these shifts & many more reverse, all alongside hormonal changes. Our postnatal massage (based on the Ecuadorian ‘Closing the Bones’ method) supports the body’s recovery after birth by encouraging the return to optimal state in a beautiful state of meditative stillness.
Optional Moroccan Womb Steam or Reiki Treatment
A Moroccan Womb Steam – a gentle herb-infused steam carries the wonders of medicinal plants to the vaginal & womb tissues, stimulating circulation & imbibing the bloodstream to increase healing within the reproductive system.
Reiki Treatment – these treatments are highly beneficial in balancing physical & emotional levels postnatally, nurturing the new mother in a way that makes her feel truly honoured
Warm, nourishing home-cooked meals
Our recipes are based of the post-partum philosophy laid out in Heng Ou’s ‘The First Forty Days: The Essential Art of Nourishing the New Mother’. Our recipes are designed to be rich in iron to rebuild blood, protein to repair tissues & support hormones, fatty acides to enrich the breast milk, vitamins & antioxidants to speed tissue healing, & therapeutic herbs & spices to counter inflammation, if needed.
New Mother Herbal Healing Bath Soak
Medicinal herbs are purposefully blended in this bath soak to support physical & emotional healing in the most natural way, encouraging recovery after birth & creating a restorative experience for new mothers.
In the busyness of new motherhood, this is an opportunity to indulge in some much-needed soothing self-care while safe in the knowledge that we are caring for your precious baby.
Person-centred approach to honouring the transition to parenthood, specific to your needs
We place the new mother at the centre of our service, honouring her & the amazing journey she has embarked upon. Our support is focused on supporting her in achieving her unique aspirations & we tailor our services to her needs & specific circumstances. We know the transition into new motherhood to be a physical, emotional & spiritual journey that should be nurtured with the same love & care as a newborn.
My postnatal massage was a truly magical experience. I was so tired from the demands of my little one, as well as feeling as though I had to get back to a house full of chores & my eldest daughter’s needs as soon as possible. My body was still recovering from the birth. It wasn’t until the massage began & I surrendered into it that I realised how badly I needed it. I felt held, safe and supported. Thank you so much.

Matresence: “The process of becoming a mother, coined by Dana Raphael, Ph.D. (1973), is a developmental passage where a woman transitions through pre-conception, pregnancy and birth, surrogacy or adoption, to the postnatal period and beyond. The exact length of matrescence is individual, recurs with each child, and may arguably last a lifetime! The scope of the changes encompass multiple domains –bio-psycho-social-political-spiritual– and can be likened to the developmental push of adolescence.” Aurélie Athan, Ph.D.
