Yes, most definitely. In fact, we highly recommend it as mothers post c-section need extra care and support in abdominal healing. About 20% of our mamas have had cesareans and we modify our treatments for them to focus on scar healing and to help with a quicker recovery. We can offer an optional foot spa/soak in place of our traditional bath relaxation.

Gentle postpartum massage is safe two weeks after a c-section. A free follow up visit will occur at 6 weeks post cesarean to perform womb massage as this can only be done from 6 weeks post cesarean. But certainly as part of The Golden Package, massage can be done safely by your practitioner.

There is one visit per week from one of our qualified practitioners. You'll be visited by a TCM Practitioner/Acupuncturist for 2 out of the 4 weeks and a qualified womens' Massage Therapist on the alternate weeks. Each practitioner will be in touch with you direct to arrange a time that it suitable for these in-home visits. At The Golden Month we are lucky to be connected with a village of extraordinary like-minded individuals who share the same passion for caring for women as we do.

The personalised herbs are different teas/tinctures depending on what you need. For example, if you lost a lot of blood during birth our TCM Practitioner would most likely recommend adding extra blood tonic herbs to your tea and broths to help replenish yin and blood. They're simply edible/drinkable herbal teas.

Our food is delivered fresh to your door each week. See our Service Areas & Delivery Days for details.

Each weekly delivery includes meals, snacks, herbal teas, herbs and tinctures for 5 days.

Our Womb Balm is coconut oil and cacao butter infused with rose geranium & she oak. It is formulated to be applied daily to the belly and/or even lower back from week two postpartum. Not only it is designed to help mothers connect to their centre and to bring back some love to where baby once was, it smells absolutely divine!
