“Gifting myself the week-long Mother & Baby Programme was the best postpartum present I could have given myself. As a new mother, taking 2 hours out of your day for yourself feels very self-indulgent, yet I feel like it made me so much happier and able to cope with the challenges of this newborn phase. For me, the benefits were both emotional as well as physical, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to any new mother!”

“I’ve been lucky enough to experience Angie’s mother baby programme twice now. The results are astounding. Giving birth has such a serious physical and mental impact on the body, The recovery process is complex and hard and it isn’t regarded enough in this way by society. But with the MB programme, Angie gave my body the rest and care it needed for the best possible chance of a successful recovery.

Alongside the very relaxing and effective treatment, she was always at the end of the phone for care, herbs, advice, reassurance. She was the caregiver I absolutely needed post both babies. Giving myself timeout to recuperate has been essential to my recovery, and has resulted in me being my best self and therefore the best possible mother.

I was really very broken in particular after my recent second birth, within days Angie has reduced my swollen womb, the bleeding and my anxious, wired exhausted state of mind, so that I was able to spend quality time with my newborn and daughter. The herbs have increased my milk flow, and only after my treatment finished can I now truly say I finally feel myself again. Thank you so much Angie, you’re a remarkable healer”

“The Mother Baby programme with Angie was the best gift for myself and my daughter in the first weeks after she was born. It was the support I needed physically and emotionally and set me up to be strong and integrated for this new chapter of motherhood. I had no idea how tired I was until the first treatment and it was a chance to 'let go'. There is so much holding on, going through so much change on the motherhood journey. It can feel scary to surrender and feel into the tiredness and really come home to yourself, yet this is essential for healing and restoration. Angie is so incredibly good at what she does. I instantly relaxed and felt calm and safe. I could trust I was in good hands and I didn't want the treatment to end. Angie brings such a wonderful energy, with her wisdom and laughter and everything feels lifted and positive. My daughter although only a few weeks old beamed at Angie when she arrived on the last day, it was as if she connected Angie with our increased peace and wellbeing and wanted to say thank you. The birth journey is like nothing else and effects everyone slightly differently. For me the daily treatment was so nurturing and healing on every level. I'm deeply grateful and my wish is for every mother and baby to receive this profoundly restoring care”

 I have been very lucky to discover the mother and baby abhyanga program after my second pregnancy. My first after delivery period was a nightmare, baby blues with all the misery of crying, fatigue, melancholy and depression.

Angie as her name describes her so well, was my angel. Not only her amazing
massages would bring me back my energy, and put my soul back into my body,
also my baby benefited from the massages with warm oil, on all levels, sleep, digestion, and also the tactile connection with the mother.

I recommended Angie to a lot of my friends, they were all so grateful. I would strongly recommend, this program. No doubt it works on all levels.”

"We arranged for three of our nieces to have the Mother Baby Program. They all speak very highly of their experiences. One of them has had the treatment twice, and has already booked her treatment in anticipation of the delivery of her third!

We saw first hand how the program revitalizes them after the baby is born, which averts any possible problems arising from deep ongoing fatigue. I will always recommend the Mother and Baby Program to any expectant mother in our extended family because it is absolutely marvelous both for the mother and the baby. A blissful baby reflects the mother's wellbeing."

“My wife is more deeply relaxed and happy. What I enjoyed was being able to take care of everyone, and know that my wife was getting the full benefit of the program without practical hassles of day-to-day running the house. It has brought us closer together and definitely strengthened the unity of the family. It’s a big experience on the family level. All of the family were functioning as different parts and now after the Mother and Baby program there is unity. It’s a wonderful feeling to know you’re doing the best you can for your family."

“On meeting Angie at the orientation meeting, I instantly felt comfortable with her friendly, supportive approach. I could see that this was not going to be a rigid, one approach fits all program. We started our 12 days of treatment, 5 days after I gave birth to my son. Angie arrived each day 30 minutes before my treatment to prepare the oils and room for me. I did not have to think or do anything. I only had to feed my baby and then hand him to my husband or Mother so that I could enjoy a blissful two hours of much needed 'me' time. I felt incredibly rested afer each session - nearly like I had had a full night's sleep. And I believe the cumulative effect of these power rest sessions, the herbs and the diet put me on the road to recovery faster than I would have managed on my own. It is almost as if these sessions grounded me after a whirlwind experience and rebalanced my internal compass.

I am grateful to Angie for giving me such a wonderful experience at the start of motherhood, and I continue to give my son his daily abhyanga. He loves it and sleeps and eats much better for it."

"Doing abhyanga is a sweet time for us. It’s nice to be with my babies (twins) and we do our abhyanga together. It’s good for them to know that I am doing abhyanga, too. I take time doing their abhyanga and it has proven to be effective in avoiding colds and tummy bugs. Everyone who sees them says, “Oh, look at those babies! Aren’t they the healthiest babies you ever saw” I am sure the abhyanga has a large part to do with that. It helps them to grow very easily”.

“The herbs are so amazing for a new mother. I found the tea to be very soothing to my nervous system. It helped balance mood swings and calmed feelings of anxiety that were prone to come up after delivery. The first day I took the tea; I was feeling overwhelmed and was in tears. As soon as I drank the tea I calmed down. I had more energy and it seemed to help my lactation. My baby gained weight consistently from the beginning, she is so healthy. I enjoyed the herbs very much.”

"After my first delivery by C-section, the skin and tissues around my tummy had felt dead for weeks, but following three days of ayurvedic treatment I felt totally renewed. In fact, counter to the instructions to rest, I had gone out shopping the day before because I felt so great.”  Kate Talbot
