The postnatal period ought to be a happy ending for us all after a healthy birth process.

Where we are blissfully bonding with our baby and preciously nurtured.

It’s a time when the woman is supposed to be served and protected.

But for most women it is a lonely and challenging time.

  • The rest required is no longer honoured by our society.
  • There are huge expectations that we should ‘get up and get on with it’.
  • We’ve lost the sense of the Sacred that has always surrounded new mothers.

For those of us without any family support we have to get back to cooking the food, doing laundry and keeping the home looking half decent for guests or health professionals who drop by, often against our wishes, at a time when we’d like to be snuggled up in bed and chilling out.

As a mother of 7 I know only too well how much there is to cope with as a family grows.

  • Our body is leaking from all sorts of places.
  • We’re rocking our hormones, (or are they rocking us!?).
  • We can’t watch or hear anything sad without flooding with tears.

And yet we’re expected to jump up, put the baby down, and do the dishes.


Thankfully there’s a revival of ancient tradition surging through women in the UK.

At Nourishing Motherhood we’ve been supporting women and honouring the sanctity of the postnatal mother since 2004.

We offer a comprehensive plan to help you rest, heal and be back on your feet at the right time.

This includes:

Birth debriefing because we all need to tell our story.

— Breastfeeding Support for good milk supply & weight gain for baby.

— Bowen Therapy for Mama to unwind tension from the birth and restore the pelvis.

— Bowen for Baby to set them straight for their life ahead.

— Homeopathy & herbs for emotional balance and physical healing.

And we are now honoured to be offering Traditional Postpartum Rites from Morocco:

Whether you got the birth you had hoped for and are protecting your health at this special time

…or you’ve been signposted here to start healing after a hard time

WE WELCOME YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY of mothers seeking natural solutions to any of the challenges of motherhood.

REACH OUT NOW FOR POSTNATAL CARE and we will ride the waves of early motherhood with you.
