To celebrate the first 40 days as a mother, Mexican traditional midwives offer a very special ceremony. It is commonly known as "Ceremonia del Cierre" or "Closing Ceremony". This is a beautiful ceremony full of care for the mother's mind and body with the use of traditional herbs baths and rebozo massage. On this way, the mother is officially moving forward from birth and into the world as a mother. This ceremony is done after the mother's first 40 days of postpartum (between 6 - 8 weeks)
With the blessing of Traditional Mexican Doulas, I have adapted this ceremony and combined it with a Birth Story Healing Session.
This means, you are not only pampered with a postpartum rebozo massage and a full body closure but also we will have a reflective exercise where we talk about your birth experience and I help you process and heal. A special tea, delicious snacks and aromatherapy are included in the ceremony.
This is a beautiful way to welcoming your motherhood.
