MASSAGE AFTER MISCARRIAGE
Providing mothers who have lost a baby with a healing massage or facial
WHAT WE DO
Massage after Miscarriage provides mothers who have lost their babies with a pampering massage or facial and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Mums are famous for putting everyone else first – during this difficult time, we want to put YOU first. We want you to feel supported, loved and cared for as you heal.
Having started in Tauranga, our goal is to have spas and florists around New Zealand on board to give women who have had a miscarriage some much-needed nurturing – for free. If you’re a midwife, a woman in need, or a business who wants to donate, please get in touch today.
Losing a baby at any stage in pregnancy is heartbreaking and recovering after a loss is both a physical and emotional journey. A massage is nurturing, healing and gives you a much-needed break from the real world.
A gentle massage calms your nerves, offers a relaxing space to unwind and reminds you to be kind to yourself and your body. It brings oxygen to your muscles and aids in the flow of lymph to help with the physical side of healing.
If you are having trouble processing your thoughts around miscarriage, massage can also be an emotional release, bringing ‘stuck’ emotions like sadness, grief or anger to the surface.
After her second pregnancy ended in miscarriage, Michelle Topham’s sister arranged for her to have a pampering massage and the spa, Sanctum Beauty, surprised her with a bouquet of flowers. Michelle felt every woman in her position deserves to be nurtured, so she set out to offer this service - for free - for women across New Zealand.
