At Mommy and Baby Craniosacral I fast track babies to be seen as quickly as possible. I understand the urgent need to help your baby. I see new clients within 1-3 days.

Tip: I find babies are more receptive earlier in the day. Feed and nap your baby as normal. For best results book your baby in for a session in the morning or early afternoon. There is no need to delay feeding before an appointment. We want your baby in a receptive mood. Most babies are awake, eat, sleep, poop and are changed throughout the appointment. It's actual better to change your baby's position frequently.
If online booking is not your thing feel free to contact me in either of these ways. Text is the fastest way to get my attention. I check email once per day in the morning.

The more you are at ease before a session the more receptive your baby will be to the session. Your baby will mirror your nervous system. For best results arrive 10-15 mins early so you can catch your breath and let your nervous system settle.
For a relaxed parking experience park on Roxboro Street across the river and walk 2 blocks. It is an enjoyable 3-4 block short walk. Or circle the block for free 2 hour parking.
For paid parking enter off 25 Ave. Park behind the building for $3/hour. Park and walk around to the front. The entrance to the building is on 4 Street. Buy 90 mins of parking. Or park in front of the building (but don't go past 3:30 pm. It's a tow away zone)>
Cost & payment details
Each 1 hour session is $120 plus gst for a total of $126. You can pay with debit, credit card or cash. You may be eligible for reimbursement under massage therapy. I am a registered massage therapist. The receipt will be for your baby's name. If reimbursement is important to you call your insurance company to see if your baby is covered for massage therapy .
How many appointments does it take?
The good news is that babies respond really well to this type of work. They respond much quicker than adults. Each session you can expect to notice some improvement in some or all of these areas: your baby's latch, less spit up and gas, less constipation, deeper sleep and better mood.
The amount of sessions I recommend to you depends on how much tension your baby has in her body. Think of it like peeling away layers of an onion. It takes some time. At each session I'll address another layer of tension. Breastfeeding problems are complex because breastfeeding is a whole body event for your baby. Over 30 muscles are involved.
It's typical for me to see babies for 4 sessions booked 1 week apart. There is never any pressure for you to book future appointments. Come for one session and see if it's a good fit for you. At the end of each session I'll tell you what I recommend and why.
I keep the sessions booked close together so we can get your baby back on track and keep progressing forward. We will get the best results by helping your baby use their body in the right way. This means we want to release any abnormal tension in your baby's body then establish and reinforce new muscle memory feeding habits. It's normal for your baby to regress with a growth spurt, teething or colds (their body is working harder).
What if my baby cries a lot?
I know some babies cry a lot and that it's super stressful for you to even leave your house. It's ok if your baby needs to cry. It's often a sign that your baby doesn't feel good in their body or that they are in pain. I can help you. We are a VERY baby friendly and welcoming office. Working with babies who feel uncomfortable in their body is what I do.
In a short time your baby will cry less and less and before you know it she will be a more happy and content baby. Babies are very responsive to Craniosacral therapy.
