Feeling tired and overwhelmed?
Need some respite?
Feel your hormones out of balance?
Experiencing aches and pains after pregnancy and labour?
Postnatal care for new mums is just as important as prenatal care. Postnatal Massage at Haelan Therapy in Hitchin, Hertfordshire is available after your six-week checkup and can not only help you recover from the rigours of childbirth, it can also help you to cope with the challenges of caring for your baby.
Being a new mum can be one of the most fulfilling and emotionally rewarding times of your life. It can also be physically and emotionally stressful. Having spent the previous 9 months becoming accustomed to carrying a growing baby, your body now has to readapt to all the bending, lifting, carrying and lowering that comes with caring for a newborn. You’ll often find yourself dozing or resting in awkward or uncomfortable positions – for most mothers a peacefully sleeping baby is worth a little discomfort. And that’s before we’ve even got to the mental and physical impact of breastfeeding and sleep deprivation.
All of the above can create areas of significant tension through the body - particularly in the back, neck and shoulders. It can also place extra stress on muscles you didn’t know you had. During your Postnatal Massage, your therapist will be able to target and release these areas to ease any aches and pains, stretch out tight or sore muscles and help realign your posture. As a result, not only can you recover faster from the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, but you’ll also reduce the risk of strains and injuries that affect so many new mothers.
