The First Visit - Postpartum Recovery Care and Massage at Home
Taking Back Postpartum - Together!
Jaimie Lindsay with Roots to Bloom and Tzipora Kirschner with Passiflora Healing Arts join together to create the postpartum experience that every mother deserves. The First Visit is designed to be scheduled during your first weeks at home. Tzipora and Jaimie will arrive together, and with loving hearts and hands prepare you for your first postpartum recovery session. Jaimie will offer:
90 minutes of knowledgeable assessment, skillful massage techniques, and gentle stretches to put your body on the path to optimal healing. You will feel aligned, revived, and will have tools to continue a healthful postpartum recovery.
Tzipora will offer:
Tender assessment and care of you and your baby, general tidying, household requests, and meal prep/ baby tending during your massage, and an additional two hours of post massage care - to use as YOU need; a nap, a shower, time to ask questions, or have a nursing session observed.
We are there to flow with the natural rhythms of your home, in the time we have. It's ok if the baby needs to nurse during the massage; we'll make it work (and we know how!). It's ok to just want a nap after your massage, it's ok to ask for help tidying up. It's OK! We are here for you, and YOU'VE GOT THIS!
The First Visit will be a total of 4 hours of care:
Arrival and settling in
90 min massage - postpartum assessment of post birth structural integrity, muscle achiness and strain, with techniques to help your pelvis, abdomen, and all over body recover best after birth, as well as movement suggestions to continue with optimal healing. (Jaimie)
