Postpartum / Barsel
Fostering Warmth & Restoration

NOW OFFERING SESSIONS AT TWO LOCATIONS IN OSLO

"There is a big difference between the ability to do it all & the need to do it all by yourself...Support cover the need part & it does not, in any way, question your skills or your will to mother your own child...

Take The Help... It is a step towards empowerment, it is healing for the body & soul plus it is an incredible investment on your own physical & mental wellbeing today & for the future..." 

Kate Brinch Sand 

 

Whom is this space for?

  • Mothers who have experienced loss in pregnancy, birth or who have parted ways with their baby after childbirth. 

  • For mothers who came into their journey through adoption or surrogacy.

  • For any birthing parent experiencing postpartum or the long term effects of it, regardless of how they identify themselves or what labels they use.

Why Postpartum Bodywork?

In the world of massage it is said that "the issues are in the tissues". Our tissues undergo tremendous adaptations throughout our lives. Our body preserves memories from a life before motherhood & the profound impact of pregnancy, birth & postpartum imprint themselves into our tissues; postpartum is an encounter with our shadow & the period of time from conception & through exogestation is a time of deep & complex evolution for the new mother who must undergo critical physiological changes to provide baby with the necessary environment to thrive. Mothers are not meant to do this without care & support, yet they do most of the time. The transition leaves a print on our body, our tissues, and bodywork helps the mother process her experiences.  

"In our journey into & through motherhood we experience primarily three types of touch: needs touch from our newborn; needs touch from our partner & other children; exploratory touch from medical providers. Massage & bodywork provide a (new) mother with a space of calm & restoration, where her body encounters an opportunity to receive touch which only gives but does not take anything from her; except for whatever she wants to release & let go off."

Support

Babywearing is about warmth, closeness & care. A private consultation will allow you to learn about  safety for baby & parent, carrying techniques, available options & other skills. Private consults are also good to improve your technique, try new carriers, get advice or support in troubleshooting your own sling. As a massage therapist & babywearing consultant, appointments with me have special focus on how parents carry & I look at helping achieve the possibility of babywearing while avoiding pain & discomfort.

Book an Express session if you'd like to pick up a sling from the Oslo Sling Library & try it out OR if you'd like some adjustments to your own sling for safety, comfort & pain management.

Book a Full Session if you are a beginner or if you'd like to learn complex carry options such as back carrying, advanced wrapping, twin carry or carrying for special needs.

The Milk & Oil Mother Policy

  • The session is built around each unique mother & babies are always welcome. Please inform in advance if baby is coming.

  • Because, babies, all motherhood sessions have a 30 minute buffer time allotted for any delay you may encounter. 

  • If baby joins you, the massage will be modified to adapt to your & your baby’s needs, while the same 30 minutes of buffer time are reserved for you.

  • You don’t pay extra for these benefits or for common penalties that other providers impose.

Here's the deal, no one needs massage therapy more than mothers. Season mothers need it for general wellbeing while new mothers need it as part of the Five Pillars of Postpartum. The rush & demands of the 21st century make massage unattainable for most mothers, particularly in the first year of a baby’s life. It’s hard to be on time, babies are unpredictable, nights may be chaotic, kids get sick, there's little to no support & businesses don't take any of this into consideration. Alas, mothers don’t book bodywork because it’s expensive to risk a last minute cancellation or because most places aren't really happy to have a baby in a massage space.

 

Taking into consideration how unexpected life becomes with a new baby, at The Milk & Oil Company mothers with babies under 12 months & children of barnehage age are allowed to cancel or re-schedule a booked session last minute, without penalty, up to two times in a row. Yes. Even up to 1 minute before.

Please read the terms & conditions of service before booking, to learn how TM&O Co. is built on a mother-care/woman-care philosophy.
