Closing of the Bones Ceremony
Closing of the Bones ceremony is a beautiful way to honour & nurture a newborn mother. making space for the enormous shift in her physical, mental and emotional state. The Closing of the Bones ceremony acknowledges the immense changes a woman has undergone in pregnancy and childbirth and assists in bringing her energy back into her own body.
Physically, it guides her bones back into place, helps her pelvic organs shift and stimulates blood flow.
Women who are honored in this way experience a sense of calm and grounding, re-establishing her sense of self.
Using a Traditional rebozo, the hips of the woman (that have widened/opened to accommodate the growing baby and birth) are gently rocked and guided back into place. The gentle rocking movement has a soothing effect on the entire physical & mental state.
The next part of ceremony a woman’s body is tightly wrapped using five rebozos on different parts of her body—feet, knees, hips, shoulders & head. The woman is then left to rest as we hold this sacred space for her.
Energy work is done to bring her back to center, balance her energy and relax her.
'During this ritual we are honoring the work a Mum's hips had to go through to bring a new life into the world'
Including a footbath
Including 60mins Post Natal Massage

As a Postpartum Doula I love to care for Newborn Mamas in the way that she is needing to be supported.
My wish is for all Mamas to have a more positive & peaceful Postpartum journey.
Often the focus is on the baby & the Mama is forgotten but I'm here to change that!
The first 40 days of Postpartum can really shape how you feel & cope in early Motherhood.
Becoming a Mother is a massive transformation & can affect how we feel emotionally, socially, spiritually & physically in the early years of motherhood.
This transformation is called 'Matresence' & should be honoured/recognized in today's society.
When you are supported, loved and cared for (without judgement!) your journey into Motherhood will be much more enjoyable & peaceful.
I am well informed with evidence based information, experienced, respectful & compassionate with new families & their needs.
I will be there to help guide parents to trust their instincts & learn skills to enable them to become the experts on their new Baby.
I understand the transformation of becoming a mother is absolutely huge. It's a time where you can feel vulnerable or isolated & I will be there to guide you through any concerns you may have.
I am here to hold space for you Mama & will always honour where you are at.
Postpartum Doula offers Support in the following ways:
Mini massages, reiki, foot & herbal baths
A full birth debrief (for mum and partner) to ensure you are heard.
Making sure you are eating enough nourishing foods
Managing fatigue, getting fresh air and doing something for you.

Breastfeeding/Bottle feeding support and troubleshooting
Settling tips for bub (Calm & gentle techniques, not sleep training)

Postpartum Mama Gatherings & Circles
New @ The Innate Mama!
'When Mamas come together they feel a sense of ‘Village’ & 'Belonging' around them, something that is missing in today’s society.'
When women gather within the space of a circle, something profound happens.
We begin to crack open parts of us that often long to be expressed, heard, seen, and felt.
In a safe, nurtured & non-judgmental environment with likeminded Women.
Being fully heard & held in a circle has many positive benefits s & brings a sense of relief from the day-to-day societal conditionings we can get caught up in.
The authentic connections we make with other women from this place, strengthens our feminine collective as well as deepen our connection and understanding of ourselves and others.
Coming together with women in circle is not admitting our weakness, it’s a sign of strength in allowing yourself to be vulnerable.
Circles offer the space to bring more awareness to who we are now as a mother and what it is that's important to us now.
Filling our souls up with nourishment that spills over into our outer lives, families, and communities. This can create much needed change on a day-to-day basis, both seen and unseen as we go through the transformation of 'Matresence.'
We come together to hold a quiet, strong, intentional space for one another to express all that needs to be expressed in that moment.
We become more present & we co-create a warm nourishing space for each other to "just be".
‘ When we come together in circles it amplifies the power of healing’
Monthly circles coming soon!
Thinking of joining us for our circles?
