This timeless sacred ritual is a traditional ceremony where a new mother is nurtured.
The woman is 'swaddled' 'closed' 'pulled' using a cloth from head to toe. Starting from the head and going down, all parts of the body are closed, aiming to aid the bones, muscles, organs and everything to slowly go back to the pre-pregnancy state.
It is a sacred ritual and ceremony, which not only heals the new mother but also helps to close the pregnancy and birth phase which has ended. It is a physical, emotional and spiritual experience
Thanks to science, we know that the pelvis slightly expands during pregnancy and labour to make way for the baby to born, the uterus is much larger to accommodate the baby, organs move and shift, the body produces 30-50% more blood and lots more changes happen to the pregnant woman's body.
In this day and age it is great to have science help 'prove' things and show that yes women are in an open state after birth, things have actually shifted and need time to go back into place.
Closing the bones is the ritual to help the new mother close her bones, support her organs shifting back and close that void space.
Although, it is best done soon after birth, this ritual can be performed on mothers irrespective of when they have given birth. It heals all women.
