Welcome/Bienvenue!

Based out of the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre, our focus is on helping people in Ottawa play a proactive role in their own perinatal care through therapeutic massage, full spectrum doula support, and childbirth preparation courses.

prenatal massage

 

 

Relax! You are in great hands ... massage therapy promotes better health and well-being by:

- reducing depression and anxiety, for better immune system function

- alleviating muscle tension and soreness and improving joint health and mobility

- creating greater mind-body awareness

birth doula, labour support

 

For happier, healthier moms and babies ... professional support during labour results in a more positive birth experience. Research shows continuous support can:

- increase the likelihood of a gentle birth

- reduce the use of pain and induction medications

- reduce the need for operative medical interventions

- improve overall satisfaction with the birth experience

prenatal education

 

Knowledge is power ... sign up for a birth preparation class with a focus on learning how to use yoga and various hands-on comfort measures techniques!
