Prenatal and Postpartum Reiki and EFT

Labor Support/Doula

Kerstin specializes in private Prenatal and Postpartum Reiki and EFT sessions. This is a wonderful way to connect energetically with the baby as well as to integrate the birth experience, promote postpartum healing and bonding.  Postpartum visits are done in the home with baby and mom wherever they feel comfortable.  The flexibility of Reiki makes it a wonderful, healing treat for mom while still keeping baby close.  This is wonderful bodywork to be done in the first six weeks and then continued throughout the postpartum period.

Discounts and partial trades for group classes available to those with limited incomes.
