Nourish your body, mind & spirit with prenatal bodywork
Prenatal bodywork is recommended starting at 12 weeks' gestation. Prenatal bodywork can provide better labor & postpartum outcomes.
My technique combines targeted body work where you need it, nourishing touch, gentle stretching which allows you to deeply relax & let go. As a trained Doula, your prenatal session offers a unique approach that caters to your pregnancy needs.
Prenatal bodywork is essential to support your changing body, encourage better sleep, alleviating many common discomforts through each trimester. Prenatal massage allows you to connect with your baby, reduce anxiety and prepare your body for an optimal birth & postpartum experience.
You will be comfortably positioned on your side with positioning support bolstering designed for your prenatal massage. This allows for proper hip and spine alignment as well as greater comfort for deeper bodywork. You will also be comfortably reclined while being whisked away to more relaxation.
For a more therapeutic experience, you may customize your session by selecting "Prenatal Bodywork plus enhancement" when booking then add your choice of enhancement. For more than 2 enhancements please select 120 min session.

After 38 weeks' gestation, try my Labor Stimulation Massage. Ideal for those who desire to stimulate your natural labor process. This session is recommended for those who have gone past their due date or who have had inconsistent labor patterns. This massage is both relaxing, energizing & grounding to support an optimal birthing experience.
A 60 min session for labor stimulation may not include full body or areas of focus beyond labor stimulation. Please schedule a longer session if you are needing more specific bodywork focus. A longer session is recommended for best results.
Most report going into active labor within 6-24 hours after this massage, results may vary, additional sessions may be necessary. I welcome your feedback if you have had this session. Prenatal Support
