Postpartum Sealing Ceremony
What is a postpartum sealing ceremony?
Also called “closing the bones”, a postpartum sealing ceremony is a beautiful way to mark the transition into motherhood. In fact, this is considered essential postpartum care in many cultures. Birth is a process of opening to allow new life to enter the world. The shift from pregnancy to postpartum is sudden and dramatic, without a moment of pause to catch your breath and integrate this transformative experience. It’s no wonder that many new moms find themselves feeling raw and vulnerable. A postpartum sealing ceremony provides closure to the intense openness of the birth experience, on a physical, psychological, and spiritual level. It can take place anytime during the first 40 days after birth.
COST: $400 includes a ceremonial bath, moxibustion, a one hour massage by a licensed massage therapist, tucking in and blessings, and belly binding.
