About Pure Postnatal
Pure Postnatal offers classes, courses and treatments in craniosacral therapy, baby massage and reflexology, new mums' care and self care, and birth debriefing. We are based in beautiful Devonport on Auckland's coastal North Shore.
Individual clients and small groups are seen at the clinic, whilst larger groups are either organised through a number of Parents Centre venues throughout Auckland, or privately in a group member's home. This is an easy and popular option for coffee groups etc who wish to learn baby massage/ reflexology or postnatal care and self care together in their local area.
Sarah Smith BA, MSc, CIMI, CST.
I am a craniosacral therapist, baby massage and reflexology instructor and postnatal doula with a special interest in new mothers' and babies' health and wellbeing. My passion is working with new parents and their babies to support the transition to peaceful and happy parenthood, and helping set a solid foundation for family life.
I have a Masters degree in Medical Sociology from the University of London and have worked and studied for twenty five years in the field of ante and postnatal health care. Before raising my own family I worked in fertility and maternity health policy for the British Government.
Once my children were at school, I was ready to work more closely with new families so I retrained in craniosacral therapy, baby massage and reflexology and postnatal doula care.
I practice Craniosacral Therapy from my clinic in Devonport, where I see babies with issues ranging from colic, sleeping and breastfeeding issues, birth trauma and other common newborn conditions.
I teach baby massage/reflexology through Parents Centre, where I also teach a new mothers' self care class focusing on mental and physical well being.
I am available for private courses in baby massage and reflexology, new mothers' care and self care, and birth debriefing.
