“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.”
~ Maya Angelou

Kaeli supported me through every step of my pregnancy – she’s not just an experienced and responsive massage therapist but an attentive listener, a restorative healer and a teacher. She helped me to relax, build my confidence in preparation for birth, and connect with my body during this crazy and magical time.

A.G., Providence, RI

Life for parents of babies is intense! At times you may feel confident, and at other times clueless or frustrated. You may delight in your miraculous baby’s soft skin one moment, and the very next wonder if you will ever get to do things for yourself again. You may ask yourself, do other mothers, partners or siblings feel this way, too?

Parent + baby Education, Yoga + Fitness, Breastfeeding Classes and Community Support Groups provide time for you, your partner, and your baby to receive knowledgeable support and care. Here, in connection to other families, you can discover that you are not alone in your experience, and can learn tools for self, baby and family care.

Postpartum (after birth) massage therapy and acupuncture sessions provide time for parents to relax deeply and receive therapies that support health and healing. Home-based sessions are offered for the first three weeks after birth. Thereafter you are welcome to bring your non-crawling baby to the center when you have a private appointment.
