New! Bengkung Belly Binding!
This is an ancient tradition of tightly binding the hips and abdomen postpartum in order to allow a healthful and stable return to your pre-pregnancy body. I provide a relaxing belly massage with tightening oil, and then I show you how to properly bind your belly with high-quality linen. This helps with posture, yet is comfortable and breathable, unlike girdles and belts. This is included with Postpartum Packages, and available as a stand-alone for $100 with a $25 deposit that will be refunded with return of linen. Please allow one hour.
New! Henna Designs!
Pamper yourself and show off that beautiful belly! Get some awesome pictures while you wait for the big day! I will come to your home and give you a spa experience while decorating your belly (or hands or feet) with natural, temporary henna designs. They typically last 1-2 weeks, and are made only with ingredients safe for pregnancy. Please allow 1 hour for complete session and extra time for it to dry. Included in some doula packages, and available as a stand-alone for $40.
Hydrotherapy (Birth Pool) Option
Whether you have a doula or not, you can get a birth pool rental for home or hospital. Most women absolutely love laboring in water! This can only be done at certain hospitals with physician approval, so be sure to ask yours to sign off on your hydrotherapy. Let me tell you the benefits that water can bring to your labor! I will come set it up for you and pick it up when the birth is over. I’ll do all the clean-up!
