Pelvic Alignment & Internal Pelvic Release

One of the recurring challenges I have witnessed in birth over the years as a birthworker, is when there is imbalance in the mother’s pelvis, we end up with complications towards the end of pregnancy and during birth.

Daily functional movement and stretching techniques in combination with regular pelvic alignment bodywork can restore balance to the body, optimising baby’s position and creating more space in the pelvis in preparation for birth.

I’m also honoured to bring internal pelvic release bodywork to the women of Cairns and Far North Queensland, supporting healthy pelvic floor function at all stages of life.

 

Pelvic Alignment and Mobility 

Initial: $170 (1hr 45min) | Return: $145 (1.5hr)

  • Is your baby breech or in a transverse position?
  • Do you have consistent sacrum pain or lower back aches?
  • Are you having pubic or lower abdominal discomfort?
  • Want to increase the chance of a more comfortable and shorter labour?

My pelvic alignment sessions utilise a range of bodywork techniques to gently support and enhance pelvic mobility for optimal foetal positioning.

You will also leave with daily activities to do at home to support pelvic mobility and facilitate optimal positioning for your baby.

Most Popular – Massage and Pelvic Alignment Combined 

Initial: $250 | Return: $225 (2.5hr)

My pregnancy/postnatal massage and pelvic alignment session has become my most popular session. We are combining the nurturing massage techniques focusing on areas of discomfort and tension and the mother-baby connection where mum can rest, relax and recharge with the pelvic alignment session utilising a range of bodywork techniques to gently support and enhance pelvic mobility, alignment and optimal foetal positioning.

This session allows you to enjoy all the benefits of the Nurturing Pregnancy Massage or Nurturing Postpartum Massage, along with the functional benefits of pelvic alignment bodywork either in preparation for birth, or to support gentle realignment and body balancing in the postpartum time.

    Techniques for your partner to support your pelvic alignment during pregnancy and labour

    All Clients: $250 (2hr)

    This is a hands on session where I teach your partner or birth companion how to support your daily alignment activities at home, including gently stretching ligaments, muscle and fascia to bring alignment back to your pelvic area.

    This will help to ease discomfort, support baby’s positioning, and increase your movement over the coming weeks leading up to the birth of your baby. These techniques are also great to use during labour to help facilitate the cardinal movements of the baby and create more space in the pelvic area to ease the birthing journey.

    You and your partner will leave with daily activities to do at home, feeling more confident and empowered in your own knowledge of your body and preparation for birth.

    Internal Pelvic Release Work

    Initial – $350 (2.5hr) | Return – $300 (2hr)

    The pelvic floor stores tension from stress, pelvic imbalance, posture, pregnancy, birth, injury, both emotional and physical trauma, and even the way we breathe.

    And this tension can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction and either tightness or weakness leading to pain, discomfort, sexual dysfunction, incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

    These issues can occur at any stage of life, but may become more prevalent with the added weight and natural shifting of organs that occurs during pregnancy.

    Internal Pelvic Release work combines both external alignment techniques to restore balance to the bony pelvis and pelvic ligaments, along with internal touch to identify and release areas of tension in the soft tissues.

    This form of professional bodywork is woman-led, completed with the full control and guidance of the woman receiving the treatment, who is supported to use breath and self awareness to complete the release.

    Internal Pelvic Release Work is ideal for women experiencing:

    • Pelvic pain
    • Pelvic organ prolapse
    • Urinary or bowel incontinence
    • Pelvic floor dysfunction
    • Pain during intercourse
    • Urinary retention
    • Endometriosis
    • Sacral pain
    • Menopausal complications
    • Vaginismus
    • Birth preparation
    • Birth injuries
    • Assault-related trauma
    • and more

     

    Pelvic Preparation for Birth 

    Initial: $350 (2.5hr) | Return: $300 (2hr)

    This session is designed to help you connect with and understand your own pelvis as part of deeper preparation for birth.

    You will learn about the strength, space and stretch your pelvis is capable of and how it works to help your baby facilitate the cardinal movements of birth.

    This session can also be helpful if you’d like reassurance of your body’s ability to birth your baby, exploring the mobility and capacity of your pelvis to open and expand, especially when supported in upright and active birthing positions.

    We will map out your pelvic bones and then work externally and internally to help support your pelvis to open, align and make room for your baby.

    External Pelvic Release Work – Using gentle release work to ease tension in the ligaments and soft tissues that are supporting the bony structures of the pelvis, to bring comfort and alignment allowing optimal positioning and mobility for an easier birth experience.

    Internal Pelvic Release Work – This is a form of professional bodywork where the woman and her body guides me to help release tension, increase tone and facilitate the intelligent nature of the pelvic tissue to be more comfortable, responsive and supportive to the pelvic organs.
