“Eowyn has magic hands. She also has a loving, calming presence that is priceless, in addition to a very affordable rate. I just had my third prenatal massage and I feel wonderful! Healthy, comfortable, and grateful.”

Postnatal Massage

Postnatal massage will enable you to:

  • better care for you little one(s)
  • recover more quickly from pregnancy and birth
  • prevent shoulder and neck pain during feedings
  • support you in coping with lack of sleep and anxiety
  • get back to regular physical activity

Once baby arrives, everything will change, whether this is your first or third child.   It’s natural for your self-care to be a lower priority, and it can seem like there is no time for massage.  

Even a 30 minute session is enough time for a rejuvenating foot massage or some attention for your neck and shoulders.  Ask a friend or family member for help to carve out the opportunity for yourself.  

A BIG TIP: schedule a massage for 1 and 2 months post-partum BEFORE the birth.  You can always change or cancel the appointment if you need.  

You are so much more likely to get a postnatal massage for yourself if you’ve done this ahead of time.
