Common Postnatal Complications
So great you have arrived into motherhood, however which way you have got here and you body and mind has been through a lot! Firstly Well done you ! This tends to be the part where everyone fusses over the Baby and the Mothers get forgotten a little bit.
There is a lovely quote I read thats says “Everyone holds the baby, but who holds the Mum?” I like to think this is my role!
So let’s talk about the things you might be going through.
- Are you suffering with Physical problems still from the birth?
- Aches and pains and tears or a C Section scar?
- Are feeling weak from the complete body effort it took to deliver you precious bundle?
- Are you feeling anxious or depressed with everything you have been through or finding it difficult to get use to your new life and responsibilities?
- Are you feeling overwhelmed with your situation and can’t rest for worrying?
- Are you struggling with the sleep deprivation?
- Are you worried about ur breast milk and if you are producing enough?
- Are you feeling emotional and alone like no one understands exactly how you’re feeling?
These are all completely normal symptoms when you have been through childbirth but they can all be healed with time and to help speed up this time frame Massage therapy can help the process. Postnatal Massage is specially designed for New Mums and can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Sarah struggled to find time for herself and felt overwhelmed and anxious most of the time, so she took advantage of our postnatal bundle and received 4 postnatal massages and baby massage course. It allowed her time for herself with baby close by and specific time to just be present with her baby, to bond and feel more relaxed and able to cope with her new busy mum life
Chloe was struggling a little bit with breast feeding, she wasn’t sure her baby was getting enough milk and worrying about it was making her feel worse. She booked in for a postnatal massage as she had heard they could help with her worrying, what Chloe didn’t realise is that massage and relaxation helped the milk flow, as massage releases prolactin and oxytocin hormones which are needed in the production of breast milk.
