Mother and Baby
After birth is a very special time for both mother and baby but it can also be very challenging. Birth can be physically quite difficult for both parties physically and emotionally.
Working with mother and baby together supports the unique bond between primary caregiver and infant, nurturing the emotional and physical connection between them. Together we create a safe and relaxed space and babies are often treated in their mothers lap or whilst feeding although also at times on the couch or in my lap. As with any holistic treatment it may take a few sessions to resolve issues.
Common reasons for bringing a baby to a session are; difficult births, sleep and feeding issues, colic, constipation, irritability, and difficulty settling.
What to expect.
A session is an hour long, We start by talking through why you’ve come and identifying your needs. Then often treat the baby first and finish the session with a treatment for mum. You both remain fully clothed throughout.
”After the birth of my daughter I was concerned that my lack of acceptance of our birth process would negatively affect our relationship and my ability to be the best mother I could. Even after just a couple of sessions with Megan I feel more accepting of what happened whilst giving birth even though it didn't go 'to plan' and this acceptance has really helped improve my bond with my daughter who was present during the sessions, although I was being treated. I would thoroughly recommend craniosacral therapy with Megan to any new mothers.” Naomi
