💜Nourished Postpartum Package💜
New Mama’s deserve the most exquisite loving care possible and this package has been lovingly and thoughtfully created to nourish and replenish Mama’s body, mind, and spirit following pregnancy and childbirth.
These nurturing home-visit treatments are based on the Mama’s needs. This includes acupressure, acupuncture, mother warming (please see below for description), herbal/dietary/lifestyle support, and a loving, supportive presence to help you navigate the flowing changes of motherhood. Please see below for a list of what acupuncture/acupressure can be helpful for during the postpartum time.
Included in this package is 3 x 90 minute acupuncture home visits, a 500ml bottle of a vitamin-mineral rich herbal syrup to replenish the body, herbal tea to support breastfeeding and emotional regulation, a perineum spray, sitz bath herbs, nipple/baby bum cream, and 2 litres of bone broth based on the traditions of Chinese medicine. This is a chicken (a vegetarian option is available) bone base with herbs such as Astragalus, Dong quai, Ginger, goji, Shatavari, and red dates that are added to help replenish Qi (vital life force) and Blood following childbirth.
Bone broth is an incredibly rich source of vitamins and minerals and is a beautiful way to nourish the body as it’s warm and easy to digest for a body that has worked so hard growing and birthing a sweet babe. The broth can be sipped on its own, used as a soup base, or used as the water portion to cook grains. *The herbs used in the bone broth are all safe for breastfeeding💜.
Ongoing email/text/phone support is also included. You’re never alone and I will always be here supporting you with any questions or concerns you may be experiencing. Postpartum is a time of great change and allowing yourself to be supported is vitally important💜.

Mother warming is a traditional treatment given following childbirth that helps support healing from birth, increases energy by nourishing Qi and Blood, and supports healthy milk supply. It is done by using indirect Moxibustion over the womb area for 15-20 minutes. Moxibustion is a traditional therapy; the herb Mugwort has been processed and rolled into a stick. One end of the stick is lit and held a few inches away from the body to add warmth and bring circulation and healing to the body. Mugwort is used for its healing properties as well as its penetrating heat. It feels wonderful and is used in many cultures to replenish the woman’s body after childbirth. This is typically done on each visit.
*Please note that due to varying prices, the cost of additional herbal medicine if required (for example if a Mama has mastitis or requires additional breastfeeding supplementation), is not included in the price of the package, but would never exceed $30/week*
Because this package includes acupuncture, insurance will cover some or all of the cost of each visit - please check with your insurance provider.
