Much like adolescence describes the transformation from child to young adult, the term matrescence is used to describe the transformational, soul changing experience of motherhood that you feel deep in your bones.
Listen, I am the last person to judge you if you haven't showered in a couple days or if you send the kids outside to play without shoes on and locked the door for a few moments so you could drink your reheated coffee in silence.
At this point in my motherhood and my life as a military spouse, calls of "just wake up before the kids" and "do something special for yourself every day" fall grossly short in my everyday life.
I can't tell you the last time I had a manicure or even went to the bathroom without somebody following me (like, if it's not the kids, it's the dogs, amiright?)
But if we are being honest, I absolutely RELISH my pregnancy and postpartum time. I plan for all the pampering, and I do not allow myself to feel a single bit bad about it.
Because growing and bringing a baby into this world is HARD work. It's transformative, no matter how many times you have done it. It tears you apart, breaks your heart to pieces and glues it back together with this enduring sense of purpose and love and joy and determination and grit and grace. But Mama, you made it through and that is worth celebrating. I would love to treat you to the luxury postpartum care you deserve.

Thank you so much to Brittany at the Infinity Family Services. I did her rebirthing ceremony and it was an exceptional and one-of-a-kind experience.... the bath was an intimate experience that Brittany tailored specifically to us. It simulated the laboring I had planned to do in the birth pool as well as the triumphant bringing of my son to my chest.... overall the experience made me feel heard and seen, which I would have been missing from my first birthing experience. Brittany was kind and understanding. Even though it was the first time I had met her, I felt at ease and would eagerly have her be a part of my birth team moving forward.
My full abdominal treatment begins with a customized herbal pre-consultation.
As the appointment begins healing herbs, cosmetic clays and exfoliating salts are mixed on site with an exclusively formulated herbal oil, which is then used to demonstrate self-massage techniques for continued home care and followed by a hot towel and dry brush treatment.
The binding portion of the appointment begins with an alignment assessment followed by binding demonstration and application as well as functional movement review.
Described as an internal facial, steaming can be used to support the health of reproductive organs during menarche, menstruation, matrescence and menopause.
Treatment plan and steaming products are customized based on a comprehensive intake questionnaire and needs assessment.
Intensive in-home steaming packages are available to aid postpartum healing goals, wellness and pelvic floor recovery and should be reserved prior to giving birth as part to ensure desired dates are available.
Most packages require a minimum of three to five sessions and up to a year of regular steaming practice to achieve desired results.
