"To be a mother is to take on one of the most emotionally and intellectually demanding, exasperating, strenuous, anxiety-arousing and deeply satisfying tasks that any human being can undertake.” Sheila Kitzinger – Ourselves as Mothers.

A Time of Joy and Challenges.

The birth of your baby will bring joy, exhilaration and profound changes and challenges to your life. As you make your transition into motherhood not only do you have to adapt to your non-pregnant state, but also to changes within your family, not to mention caring for your dependent baby 24/7.


Caring for Mum and Baby.

It is vitally important, therefore, to ensure that you receive care and nurturing to support you through this time. Receiving specialist post-natal massage is a wonderful way to heal and ease the discomforts in your body following your pregnancy & birth, improve energy levels and to provide nurturing support to you and your family.

Five Benefits for Your and Your Baby

You are welcome to bring your baby with you while you have your post - natal massage.

The Bella Mama treatment room is equipped with a Natures Sway Baby Hammock which will gently rock your baby to sleep as you enjoy your massage.

Pricing and Packages 

New Bloom Post Natal Massage with Javanese Spice Belly Wrap - 75 mins   $135

Following your massage, your tummy will be covered with a herbal poultice.  This "Jamu" herbal paste is a traditional Javanese post-natal treatment and is designed to help tone the abdominal skin and to warm and soothe the internal organs and muscle.  This will be firmly wrapped to help support the lower back and flatten the tummy.   A warm wheat bag is then placed on the tummy while you receive a deliciously relaxing neck, scalp and face massage.   The post natal belly wrap is then worn home and removed in the evening.

Package of three New Bloom Post Natal Massages with Belly Wraps  $369 For best results and ultimate mama nurturing, it is recommended to have 6 - 8 New Bloom treatments following the birth of your baby


New Bloom Post Natal Massage - 60 mins   $110

Exclusive to Bella Mama, the New Bloom Post Natal Massage  is a treatment designed to soothe and support you following your pregnancy and birth.   Choose the one hour post-natal massage alone or add the 15 minute Javanese Spice Belly Wrap to the end of your treatment (see above).

Following a detailed consultation, your post-natal massage will be especially designed to ease any discomforts you have following your pregnancy & birth such as back pain and/or feeding shoulders. Acupressure points and stretches will be used to improve your energy levels and allow you to relax, whilst specific abdominal massage techniques help to tone and tighten stretched skin and muscle.

What Our Mamas Say - Bella Mama

Both Jo and Sam were and still are my antidote for the aches and pains of pregnancy and I have returned for post birth massage, which I must say is even more necessary than during pregnancy. I started treatments at Bella Mama because I had heard some bad press about massage during pregnancy, so I searched for a reputable place where I felt my baby and I would be in safe hands.
