Birth Story Processing Session

These sessions are available in the comfort of your own home, online or in person. Typically our births are quite an adventure; sometimes we may not have been emotionally prepared for the outcome, or may have some lingering processing to do.

(It is important that the birth story sessions be distraction free, so children and family members are asked to be respectful of your quiet and privacy. Will travel within 20 miles.)

Closing Ceremony Session & Belly Binding

The “closing” ceremony begins by soaking your feet in a flower and lavender footbath, as I honor and welcome you. You will be wrapped in warm blankets with an offering of nourishing foods and herbal tea. As I guide you through this sacred ritual, we will explore your hopes and intentions, and any pieces of your birth that you would like to address or “let go” of.

Yoni Steam

A soothing womb steam infused with healing herb blend of your choice is offered as an invitation for ultimate healing, renewal, and gratitude. ​(Local rosemary, chamomile, lavender, basil, apple, mint or pennyroyal used when possible.)

Warm Abdominal Massage

Abdominal massage facilitates blood and energy flow to the womb, promoting healing, alignment and warmth after giving birth. You will be massaged and nurtured by the healing properties of Hot Stones, Ayurvedic oils and Herbs.

Wrap It Up

As we move into the final stages of the ritual, I wrap your entre body in traditional scarves, placing an emphasis on supporting and aligning your womb to help ‘close you’ physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I then give you a scalp and facial massage, perform energy work, and continue to nurture you with oils, herbs music and sound.

The closing ceremony honors a new mother, opening a soft, loving space for introspection, growth, transition, grounding, peace and healing; “Closing.”
