WHY MOMS DO IT
Mother Roasting is the practice of keeping a woman warm immediately after birth and in the first few weeks following birth. It rejuvenates her body, helps her to focus and connect with her newborn baby and nourishes her back into being. It also seals up emotional, physical and spiritual gateways that have been opened by birth. Traditional Mother Roasting services include healing massage, cooked foods for nourishment, herbal support and warmth, through binding the womb space, warm teas, herbal baths and herbal tummy paste application.
It's about putting the mother in the sacred place to give them a sense of coming home.
It helps women regain their emotional and physical balance through a deep heart-centered, honoring ceremony carried out in a conscious way. It's a combination of soft voice, gentle touch, healing hands and a listening ear in a soulfully designed and prepared environment.
With handcrafted balms, tinctures, teas and all remedies used in the honoring ceremonies, which reconnects them to their deeply planted, inner wise woman tradition. Every substance being used and all ingredients are pure and organic. This is a delicate spiritual time that deserves humility, expert care and warmth to help the mother heal and seal her birth story.
It is a sacred vow to women to be there for them, and to hold their hand during their special transition from maiden to mother. We will hold this healing space for you.
