Prenatal Reiki can be a beautiful gift to mother and baby. Prenatal Reiki treatments can enhance the mother-baby connection, support a healthy pregnancy, prepare for labour and help relieve some of the discomforts associated with pregnancy. Reiki automatically adjusts itself to be gently beneficial to baby, and cannot harm or hurt in any way. "Reiki babies" are generally said to be very 'zen' babies, being calmer and less fussy than other babies. A postpartum Reiki session with mom and baby or dad and baby can help strengthen bonding and support recovery from the birth.
