Nurturing Session for Postnatal Mums and Beyond
Welcome to our "Healing After Your Birth" session — a bespoke, one-to-one experience curated to provide solace and restoration after childbirth. This session is meticulously designed to offer emotional solace and physical rejuvenation, providing a supportive pathway towards healing and recovery.
A new mother looking for a nurturing space for yourself?
Feeling overwhelmed by the significant transition of welcoming a new baby?
Struggling everyday with trying to understand and process your birth experience?
Carrying undigested feelings about your birth, no matter how long ago it was?
You are not alone!
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, 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 after your birth.
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, recognizing 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.

Rebozo* Massage and Closing Ritual
These rituals provide a compassionate space for emotional release, offering deep nurturing and healing. Regardless of your birthing 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.
During the early postnatal phase, the massage accelerates physical and energetic healing. It's a relaxing, nurturing experience, leaving individuals feeling more radiant afterward.
Sometimes there are tears of gratitude, sometimes tears of grief. This space invites individuals to be seen and embraced, often revealing emotions previously unrecognised. All emotions are welcomed and honoured.
Beyond physicality, these rituals stimulate profound energetic shifts, offering clarity, relief from emotional burdens, and facilitating healing transitions.

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 birth debriefing, aiding in digesting and healing after your birth.
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. I want to express my gratitude once more for her invaluable session.
