Mother roasters are caregivers that nurture new mothers after birth whilst supporting their recovery and journey into motherhood; as every woman deserves to be welcomed into motherhood through gentle and loving care, wrapped in a blanket, warmed and healed, and gifted with ceremony.
The definition of postpartum care is helping a woman regain both physical and emotional balance as she readjusts her post-birth body into a none pregnant state of being.
Bengkung belly binding £70 wrapping and teaching session (inc wrap to keep) extra sessions £25 each.
An effective and important part of mamma's recovery that aids the body to shrink and recover in a shorter time period. Steady pressured support on the hips allows the body to 'close' more easily than if just left in its expanded state. The Benkung style of binding is known to help heal diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles) with constant supportive pressure on the abdominal area. And to aid in posture and spine realignment. I will come to you and with the bind and teach you or your partner how to wrap that bind. The wrap is then yours to keep. If you wish for me to return and re-wrap extra sessions can be booked. Discounts on multiple extra sessions apply.
For best results binding should be done as soon as possible after birth, ideally around day 5. For cesarean birth a minimum of 6 weeks should be given for wound healing before binding.
