Inspired by a myriad of global postpartum healing traditions, I blend modern approaches with traditional practices to create services and products that will support your wellbeing after childbirth. Whether you are newly postpartum, or even a few years in, many of these modalities or products can benefit you. If you are at least 8 weeks postpartum, or have never been pregnant/postpartum before, and are seeking scar tissue remediation, vaginal steam, somatic bodywork, or somatic sexology, please click here.

If you would like to book one or more of these services, please send me an email at zoe.etkin@gmail.com. It’s ideal to book these services as far ahead of time as possible.

These services are available in the comfort of your home for moms who are under 6 weeks postpartum. After such time, home visits will incur an extra charge of $10. To avoid this charge, come to my office in Midtown.

Vaginal Steam

After childbirth, the perineum, vulva, and bum can all need a bit of TLC. Swelling, tears or stitches, and hemorrhoids can make the healing process uncomfortable. Vaginal steaming aka peri steaming works beautifully to increase circulation, promote healing, and gently cleanse the area. Steams are sold in packages of 3, and I will come to your home with my full set up and guide you through your half hour steam session. During your steam, I am happy to sit with you, or offer you a moment of privacy by holding your baby. Steam lasts 30 minutes plus prep/clean up time.

Steam Package x 3: $125.00
Single Steam: $45
Prices include herbs
*Included with postpartum doula packages

Postpartum Foot Care

Swollen, achy feet post-birth are nothing you want to worry about when you’re busy caring for your baby. Pamper yourself by selecting this service. I’ll come to your home and prepare a warming foot soak, then apply an exfoliating scrub, and then nourishing oil. Simple nail care and polish are included if desired. Relax, nurse your baby if needed, and enjoy this opportunity to do something to care for YOU. This service is a great gift for new moms who are not yet ready to leave the home. Bring the pampering to mama! Available in pregnancy too!

Service lasts 30-45 minutes plus setup/clean up.

Belly Care & Binding

Warm oil belly care technique gently supports digestion and uterine involution, and invites organs to return to pre-pregnancy position.  This luxurious experience takes place in the comfort of your home, and is a practice you can continue to do on yourself, or you can book several sessions in the early days or weeks postpartum. Belly care is a beautiful way to honor your body post-pregnancy and birth, and can become a simple self care routine to recharge you and your relationship to your body. Following the care, I will wrap your abdomen in cotton muslin, inspired by the Malaysian tradition of Bengkung. The binding serves to support the core and assist in uterine involution.

​Session lasts roughly 30 minutes. 

Belly Care & Binding x 3: $125.00
Single Sessions: $45
Prices include oil & wrap

Infant Massage Education

Just as it is important for newly postpartum parents to receive nourishing touch, babies also receive great benefits from intentional touch. During an infant massage session, I will instruct you on how to massage your baby, showing you a variety of techniques so you may implement this practice in your infant’s daily routine. Infant massage has many benefits, including relaxation, bonding, and much more. 

Massage is a beautiful way to care for your baby and teach them the importance of body-care/self-care. Please provide your preferred oil (coconut, olive, jojoba, etc.).

Sessions last as long as baby is receptive– anticipate some flex time to make sure baby is fed and ready.
