Closing of the Bones Ceremony

Closing of the Bones ceremony is a beautiful way to honour & nurture a newborn mother's body. Creating space & acknowledging the enormous shift in her physical, mental and emotional state.

 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, helping her pelvic organs to shift and stimulates blood flow.

Women who are honoured in this way experience a sense of calm and grounding whilst re-establishing her sense of self.



The Ritual:


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 I hold this sacred space for her. 
Energy & crystal healing work is done to bring her back into alignment, balance her energy and relax her.


 

 

'During this ritual we are honouring the work a Mum's hips had to go through to bring a new life into the world'

Postpartum Doula 

As a Postpartum Doula I absolutely 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 manageable, 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 newborn Mamas & will always honour where they are at in their motherhood journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Postpartum Doula offers Support in the following ways:

  • Postpartum massages, reiki, foot & herbal baths  

  • A full birth debrief (for mum and partner) 

  • Making sure Mama is eating enough nourishing foods

  • Setting up boundaries  & making sure that they are being respected.

  • Breastfeeding/Bottle feeding support 

  • Settling tips for bubs (Calm & gentle techniques)

  • Setting realistic expectations around baby sleep

  • Supporting the Mother in her choices for her baby

  • Help the Mother with the baby when required e.g. holding, bathing, changing etc.

  • Allowing rest time for Mum to support her body's recovery from birth (not to mention her lack of sleep!) 

  • Prepare nourishing meals (nutritious meals are vital to support the body’s recovery and help with milk production)

  • Support for the siblings i.e. play with them or take them to the park

  • light housework duties: ​Put out/ fold washing, put clean sheets on your bed, clean benches, vacuuming, sweeping etc.
