Are You...

  • A new mother looking for a nurturing space for yourself?

The postnatal period is a transformative phase—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. While the joys of welcoming a new baby bring happiness, many mothers feel overwhelmed and stretched thin with the pressure of nurturing and protecting their newborns.

 

If you've had a traumatic birth experience or a baby loss, its impact lingers in your body and emotions. Unresolved feelings might affect your daily life, but it's crucial to understand that this isn't your fault. You might need a compassionate space to express, be heard, and receive physical support to heal.

 

That's where our session steps in.

Instead of pushing yourself to keep going, it's crucial to pause, reconnect with yourself, and focus on healing. This session is dedicated to nurturing and rejuvenating yourself, recognising that your well-being is equally important. Nurturing yourself not only benefits you but also your entire family by bringing more happiness and smiles into your home.

What's the “Healing After Your Birth” Session?

Contents: Tailored to your needs, including debriefing, Birth Art, Shiatsu, Rebozo Massage and Closing Ritual.

Rebozo* Massage and Closing Ritual

These rituals provide a compassionate space for emotional release, offering deep nurturing and healing. Regardless of your experience, they offer comfort, support, and aid in transition closure. The rituals focus on providing solace, calmness, and healing through primal sensations—rocking and wrapping—inducing relaxation, grounding, and reconnecting with your body's safe space.
 

*The rebozo is a versatile traditional Mexican shawl utilised for various purposes such as warmth, carrying loads, providing pregnancy and birth support, and carrying babies. It represents a broader global practice where similar cloths are used across cultures worldwide.

Birth Art

This session focuses on the process rather than a showcase of the artwork you create. Through gentle guidance, you'll draw or use clay, followed by journaling based on my prompts, and at the end, discussing your experience. It's about connecting with yourself and reflecting on your journey through simple artwork. 

No artistic skills are needed! Even if you don't consider yourself artistic, you'll be surprised at the power of this tool and the self-discovery it unveils through simple artwork.

This process is about self-exploration, directing your focus inward to your inner wisdom rather than relying on external information. It complements debriefing, aiding in digesting and healing after your birth.

Testimonials

"It was such an amazing experience that it is hard to find the right words. She listened to me talking about my previous birth experience & trauma so empathically, really heard me, then lovingly prepared the ritual space. Throughout I felt safe and held. I cried tears of relief and joy and ended up rocked, centred and whole in a cocoon. Afterwards, my body tingled, feathery-light and full of warmth - like a small rebirth. It truly is an experience I can recommend and look forward to repeating after my upcoming birth."

"The session was relaxing and filled up my heart so much. The rebozo work that Tomoko did made my body feel amazing after what it has been through in birth and I came out of the ceremony feeling so relaxed and reborn myself. It is such a beautiful way to mark and honour the huge transformation we go through when we give birth. Thank you so much Tomoko xx"

"Tomoko listened to me attentively and wholeheartedly embraced my story. Her support allowed me to freely express the emotions and uncertainties I had about my childbirth. I credit this to the welcoming atmosphere and environment she cultivated. Her encouraging words made me realise that my actions were never mistaken. Engaging with my inspiration through art instead of structuring my thoughts with words or text proved to be remarkably effective. "
