• Mother Wellbeing Sessions

  • Mother Massages, Pelvic Floor Muscle Toning, Guided Imagery and Reflection

  • I am a holistic minded Doula. I love my work and am passionate about women's health, particularly surrounding motherhood. I promote good eating habits, encourage mobility, and honor the physical capabilities of women and mothers.

    Throughout pregnancy, during labor and delivery, and after baby is born, I offer a selection of massage techniques, breathing methods, pelvic floor exercises, and guided imagery proven to support your transformation from woman to mother.

  • I highly recommend Laurie, who specialises in mother wellbeing sessions (amongst other things). I was so well cared for. I always felt the difference when Laurie had supported me in our home. She worked magic.

  • You will be privy of products and methods which I have personally selected, specifically designed to aid new families and support childbirth recovery. As a new mother you will adjust to carrying your baby in an entire new way. The intensive care and hours of breastfeeding a newborn often results in tense shoulders and sore neck muscles. I would be grateful to sooth your sore muscles and relax, replenish your energy. Reach a state of deep relaxation with Guided Imagery Relaxation Techniques. You may find it empowering to visualize the changes that have occurred to your body during your pregnancy and birth, and give thoughtful thanks for all that your body has accomplished. If wished, we can revisit your birth experience together in a supporting environment.

  • I was diagnosed with pre-pre eclampsia the last month of my pregnancy. I was worrying about it and of course that didn't help, on the contrary. Laurie helped me relax and enjoy the last weeks of my pregnancy by guiding me through yoga moves, massaging me and also facilitating guided imageries.
    It was just what I needed - my blood pressure stayed stable and I avoided becoming pre-eclampsic, avoiding many interventions. Im so grateful.

  • Laurie Reinke | Pelvic Floor Muscle Training | birthinberlin.com

    Let's get you back in contact with your pelvic floor muscles.  Before any sports, training or heavy lifting can take place, your pelvic floor muscles must recover.  

    Pregnancy alone weakens the pelvic floor, even if you did not give birth vaginally.  Therefore it is important to train the Pelvic Floor even after birth by cesarean section.

    Perhaps you suffer from stress incontinence?  One third of all new mothers experience stress incontinence, which is uncontrolled release of urine during coughing, sneezing or laughing.

    Pelvic Floor Exercises will help your perineum and vagina to heal more quickly, prevent and treat accidental release of urine, improve the circulation of blood to your perineum, which will help to reduce swelling and bruising.

    I will teach you simple exercises which will strengthen your Pelvic Floor, and relay tips on how to protect yourself from incontinence later in life.

  • My pelvic floor session with Laurie was outstanding. Her mere presence is healing and comforting. She gave me tools to strengthen my pelvic floor after suffering from a bladder prolapse and I have to say her skills and knowledge saved me from a surgery. I'm very grateful for her support and efficient work.

    ~ Rakel, Stress Prevention Coach

  • I booked some private sessions with Laurie hoping to improve my pelvic floor as well as gain some practical tools for daily, and lifelong, pelvic floor health. Laurie really took the time to listen to my concerns, even asking about my birth story and history, and then tailored the program to meet my needs.
    Some of the exercises were familiar to me, but they really became something new once I considered what my pelvic floor was doing.
    I also learned many different ways to incorporate my baby into the exercises, something that is very practical when you have a active, crawling child.
    I felt very comfortable with Laurie; it's clear that she has a passion for what she does.

  • I recommend Laurie, who took me through nice training sessions to exercise the pelvic floor muscles after birth. I really liked it! I learned things that are good to practice for life-preventing issues that can happen during ageing. I feel really good about it.

  • ... I was looking for a lactation consultant who could help me to ease the terrible pain I had while breastfeeding, and I ended up having a two-hours postnatal care that was mostly about me and my emotional and physical comfort. Laurie Reinke as a postpartum doula made magic with me, after the session I felt relieved, relaxed, confident and fresh. I highly recommend these kind of TLC postpartum sessions for newborn mums, we totally deserve it and it helps a LOT!

    ~ Petra, mother of one week old.

  • "I reached out to Laurie looking for help to strengthen my pelvic floor muscles, but she taught me so much more.From the beginning Laurie established a safe space for me to share my experiences as a new mother and a woman. Her experience was evident through her knowledgeable words and guidance during each of our meetings. She was ready to answer my questions and provided me with information about further exercises and activities.

    With Laurie, I learned how to know and communicate with my body as well as my soul."

  • It has been wonderful working with Laurie so far in taking stock of personal and professional challenges both as expat and as new mother. It is a great aid to have someone 'hold space' for me, to have an objective and neutral ear, but also someone who listens and assists on a soul/spirit level. I was able to already make progress in a short time with fundamental wellbeing issues. I can highly recommend!

    Kate, mother of 4 year old

  • Laurie Reinke | Closing the bones ceremony | birthinberlin.com

     A Ceremony to Realign the Energy Fields After Birth

    The intention of the Closing the Bones Ceremony is to provide a space as a nurturing and supportive environment to encourage healing on these many levels. This ceremony is recommended three times within the first forty days after birth. Practiced the first time on the fifth to seventh day after birth, after the  arrival of breast milk, and the following two ceremonies are completed within twenty day intervals.  

    A variety of healing techniques may be used involving a Robozo, massage, reiki, aromatherapy, and sound healing. The ceremony ends with a ‘closing’ done by gently wrapping the cranium, the midsection and the pelvic area, encouraging shrinkage of the uterus and guidance of the bones back to their original positioning.

    This process literally helps close a Mother’s body, which opens in so many ways - physically, emotionally and spiritually - both in preparation for, and during birth itself. The ritual also helps to close a new Mother energetically, as both pregnancy, and the intense process of labor and birth, can be very vulnerable times for a woman, psychologically and physically.

    The Closing of the Bones Ceremony is designed for Mothers from one week postpartum and beyond. The ceremony is open to all Mothers at any time who wish to find some closure for their pregnancy and birth experience.
