Ayurvedic and Traditional Postpartum Doula Rates

We start working together, ideally from week 32 onwards when you still have time and space to think about your needs for when your baby is born but anytime after is possible. Sometimes moms find themselves a bit overwhelmed when the kraamzorg leaves, please contact me anyhow and if space allows I will be happy to offer my support.

The Ayurvedic Postpartum Support can be started anytime from the moment you give birth (even when the kraamzorg is still present): the earlier you start the most beneficial will be for your recovery. The Traditional Postpartum Support can start anytime from the moment the kraamzorg ends her support and can be extended up to 3/6 months after birth.

The packages are further customisable as the needs of each family/mom/baby are different: it may go from a minimum of 15 hours to get you covered for the full immediate postpartum (150 hours). 

The fee for all the Postpartum Support Packages is parted into instalments. Should the cost be a problem for you or you feel your family needs a different combination/length of service, contact me anyway and I'll be happy to talk about your options.

REBOZO CLOSING THE BONES RITUAL

Traditional Ceremony to close the Postpartum Window 

This traditional ritual is performed minimum 6 weeks after birth and 8 after C-section and it is more than a physical treatment. Known for the healing capacity it closes energetically the body after birth and the nurturing yet challenging phase of postpartum: meant to honour and celebrate the new mother that closes the period of pregnancy and postpartum and enters the next stage of her life.

 

It includes:

  • preparation of the space and cleansing tea,

  • guided meditation,

  • sharing of the birth story and postpartum experience

  • rebalancing oil massage

  • warm scented bath (if present at home or foot bath as alternative together with shower)

  • rebozo sealing ritual.

 

The ritual is possible after vaginal birth, cesarean, VBAC in any moment the woman feels ready for it (even a few years after). The ritual is beneficial also in other stages of life when important changes have happened and we feel ready to move forward and be rebirth.

You are welcome to bring anyone you would like to have as support during the ritual: it can be a close friend, a sister or your mom. In case you would like not to be accompanied in this moment is also fine, be sure the baby is taken care of in that moment.
