While I love to work with a diverse population of clients, there is something especially special about working with women and their partners throughout their journey from thinking about having a baby to having the baby in loving arms. What a deep honor and privilege to support prenatal and postpartum women, their partners, and babies during this amazing, transitional journey. It is a gift to bear witness and lend support during this time.

Bodywork for Momma's Partners
Partners may not undergo as many physical changes as soon-to-be and new mommas, but they are navigating their own emotional and psychological shifts. With this awareness, these sessions help partners prepare for and ease the transition that they are experiencing. Inevitably, this also helps them better manage the changes that their expectant partners are undergoing daily and weekly. This is for anyone who is supporting the momma and part of her team; partner, dear friend, mom, dad, sister, other kids (I’m happy to do mini-sessions for young kids who want to be a part of this Journey!). These sessions combine massage, Acutonics, energy work, cranial sacral, flower essences and essential oils.
The Benefits: (Everything that bodywork does plus):
