Loss and Grief
The grief that occurs following the loss of a baby, whether after 10 weeks or 41 weeks of pregnancy, affects a mother's entire body. Body systems must revert to a non-pregnant state and mind and emotions must work through how to connect the identity that was before getting pregnant with the identity that follows loss.
Gentle massage is a wonderful healing balm for a mother experiencing grief following a loss, helping to alleviate some of the physical and mental stress for a time.
In honor of Phoenix, who is still greatly missed by her mother (a dear friend), a free 60 minute massage session is offered once a month to a mother who has experienced loss in the past 6 weeks. Confirmation of availability prior to scheduling is necessary to avail of this gift. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
For the mother outside of this 6 weeks window, massage is still greatly beneficial. To purchase a session for a mother you know as a comfort, please see gift certificates.
If scheduling a session for yourself following a time of loss beyond six weeks, please let Jenn know when you schedule, by completing an intake form.
