What is Postpartum Reiki?
If you have had your baby in the last year and have been experiencing symptoms of extreme sadness, low energy, anxiety and irritability, or if you experience crying episodes and have a change in sleeping and eating patterns, you could be suffering from Postpartum Depression. This condition often occurs in the first three months after child birth, but can come on any time within the first year.
Postpartum Reiki is a service that I offer for new mothers (and sometimes fathers) who feel that something inside of them is interfering with the feelings of joy and happiness they should be feeling with their new baby. Unfortunately, it isn’t uncommon for feelings of depression and sadness to set in with the arrival of a baby – especially with the dramatic change in our hormones after childbirth. There may not be a proper balance of estrogen and progesterone in the body; or other hormones produced by the thyroid gland could have dropped.
Fortunately, bringing Reiki into your life is a natural way to help ground and center you, and to help you fully experience and appreciate the bundle of joy in your arms so you can both move forward together!
What Can I Expect In a Session?
The session will begin with a friendly and open consultation where you can choose to share as much or as little about what brought you into the session as you like. Whether or not you are on medication to help bring your body back into balance, Reiki and other healing techniques can be of great service to help you feel like your old self again. This work can help you feel more grounded, happy and grateful for your new baby. It can also help you and your spouse feel more connected and on the same page.
