Self-care is crucial as a New Mother.
I am almost 6 months postpartum, can you believe it ?
Life has been absolutely amazing since I gave birth to my little Prince, and even if I love taking care of him, I believe it’s also very important that I dedicate some time for my own wellness and wellbeing.
Now that I am a Mom, I totally understand all the things that I used to read and hear about being a Mother.
My body has gone through many changes over my pregnancy! I have been experiencing pain in my hips, muscle tensions, very bad blood flow in my legs, fatigue due to my lack of sleep and so on!
I looked up “Postnatal / Postpartum Massage Miami” and to be honest the one who stood out the most to me was Carmen Barcelona Bodywork and Massage.
After reading her biography via her website, I booked a session without any hesitation. I am thrilled I did because now I found my new go to for a massage in Miami.

What is a Postpartum Massage?
The postpartum or postnatal massage is a full body massage promoting relaxation, pain relief, and stress reduction, that can help Mothers to recover after giving birth and make them feel more comfortable physically and emotionally as they are starting their new journey.
The Benefits I have experienced from my Postnatal Massage Sessions :
Right after my first session with Carmen , I have definitely started to feel more relaxed physically and better within my own body. I enjoyed very much her pressure, technique, the hot towels. I left her studio feeling like I was on a cloud!
After my child delivery, I was feeling soreness in my shoulders, legs and back.
I very much enjoyed Carmen’s attention to detail when adjusting various parts of my body and stretching or massaging based on what’s needed, and in a way that actually helped my pain points feel better.
During pregnancy body fluids typically increase by about 50%, I am telling you my legs and ankles where swollen! I feel like the postpartum massages have helped increase my circulation and lymphatic drainage as my legs and ankle swelling have reduced after couple sessions.
It’s common to feel exhausted after giving birth and especially as you take care of your newborn. Massage can help ease fatigue, support relaxation, and improve quality of sleep. Carmen listened to everything I needed done and applied just the right amount of pressure when needed. I slept like a baby the night after the first session.
Sefcare is mandatory after giving birth! Book yourself a postnatal massage session with Carmen Barcelona Massage within the first 12 weeks after your delivery for best results.
