In many places across the world, postnatal massage and nurturing a new mamma are a completely normal, traditional part of post-birth care.
These practices help the new mother to feel good about herself, help her to focus on, and bond with her baby as well as to rest and recover from the birth, therefore reducing both physical and emotional stresses.
Mamma Me Time offers a range of 100% bespoke postnatal massage options which incorporate specific techniques to help aid recovery from pregnancy and birth. All are completely tailored to your specific needs, taking into account your type of birth, age of your baby, method of feeding and of course, your preferences.
Indian head massage is a firm favourite for new mum’s as it targets the whole upper back, neck, shoulder and head area which is often tense in mum’s. This massage can be easily performed while holding / feeding your baby (Select 30 or 45 minute massage option for Indian head massage)
Some benefits of postnatal massage include:
Reducing muscle tension and easing aches and pains.
Encourages mental & physical relaxation.
Gives you some time out to relax, reflect and recharge your batteries.
Improves circulation, relieving swelling, reducing the risk of varicose veins and lowering blood pressure
Improves digestion and aids bowel mobility, avoiding constipation and decreasing the risk of haemorrhoids
Simply makes you feel better!!!
You can attend for a postnatal massage as soon as you feel well after your birth, in fact in some cultures massage hours after birth is a normal part of the mother’s postnatal healing care.
If you have had a caesarean section then it is advised to wait approximately 6 weeks before having deep abdominal massage and massage local to your scar.

Each massage is inclusive of a custom-made aromatherapy blend if suitable. The time stated for your massage is always your hands-on massage time, additional time is included for pre and post massage care, ensuring a truly personalised and satisfying experience.
