Postnatal Massage

Bodywork Health is a true specialist in pregnancy and postnatal massage.

Sam is a fully qualified therapist with over 5 years’ experience in the Pregnancy field working with dozens of Mum’s pre & post birth.

After having a baby, a mother’s life and her body are changed forever. Massage can support these changes and help lay the foundations for long- term emotional and physical health for you and your baby.

For mother’s that delivered naturally or without complications, you can have a massage whenever you are comfortable and ready.

For those of you that had a Caesarean delivery, we recommend waiting at least 4 weeks to allow the scar to heal.

Benefits of Postnatal Massage:

  • Support and speed up healing after birth

  • Facilitate healing after caesarean section
  • Restore normal walking patterns
  • Can aid breast feeding and milk production
  • Re-balance and re-align pelvic joints
  • Prevent and reduce back and neck pain caused by new-born care
