Offers after the birth of your baby

We would like to continue to support you even after the birth and offer you a comprehensive program of classes, as well as consultations and therapy services by individual appointment.


Rehabilitation exercises

After the birth of the child, the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles are overstretched. In the first days after childbirth, these two groups of muscles cannot be tensed in a controlled manner. Sometimes a temporary weakness of the sphincters of the bladder and bowel can occur.

Around four to six weeks after the birth of your baby, you can join our rehabilitation class. If you had a cesarean section, please wait until after the follow-up visit with your gynecologist to start active exercises at the proper time.

For our rehabilitation training, we pay special attention to specific exercises for the pelvic floor muscles, strengthening the entire body, perception exercises, relaxation, and breathing. Of course your baby is very welcome too!

Consultation, treatment

Postnatal care and/or breastfeeding advice


The first weeks after the birth are a very sensitive time – many things are new and you still have to adjust to the daily routine with the newborn. It can be a great advantage to have a competent contact person during this time.

Baby massage – “loving touch”

In the first phase of the baby’s life, its skin is a very important organ, because there is no other way through which it can feel affection and tenderness more strongly.

A baby massage satisfies the child’s need for attentive physical contact and helps you and your baby become closer.

The baby massage promotes the infant’s harmonious mental development, increases its metabolism and helps with digestive problems. It boosts the baby’s immune defenses, helps it fall asleep and relieves tension caused by the birth.

The moves and techniques are very easy to learn. Soon the parents become confident that they can fully trust their own abilities.

Attentiveness to the baby, calmness and concentration make the baby massage a very special, profound experience for the parents and child.

Ms. Gladys Castro, certified pediatric and infant nurse, shows you how you can pamper and relax your baby with a loving massage. You can start the baby massage between the 8th and 12th  week of life.

Bach flower therapy

Pregnancy marks the beginning of a new and exciting phase of life for the expectant mother, for the companion, but also for the unborn baby.

Sometimes – especially during this phase with all the changes and adjustments it brings – things can go differently than planned. At times like this, Bach flowers can help establish harmony. The Bach flowers have a direct effect on our mood and, similar to homeopathy, are subtle remedies obtained from flower extracts.


They can also be used to support the whole family after birth and during the first weeks at home.

Bach flowers can help, for example, with:

  • Worries during pregnancy, before and during birth and in the days and weeks afterwards
  • Exhaustion and fatigue
  • Annoyance, mood fluctuations
  • Coming to terms with an unwanted pregnancy or troublesome birth experiences
  • Nausea
  • Premature labor
  • Peace of mind before delivery
  • Excessive worrying about the baby
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • The process of adjusting
  • Babies after suffering from acute stress
Where: Döbling Private Hospital or at your home as part of a home visit
When: individual appointments by arrangement
Price:  € 80
