Amherst, NH, November 12, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- In the bustling, yet quiet town of Amherst, New Hampshire, situated between the cities of Nashua and Manchester, a new business is opening its doors, intent to change the face of birth in America.
According to pattch.org, around 30 percent of US women report having experienced a traumatic birth, a birth in which the woman or her partner believed either she or her baby were in danger, or her emotional integrity was threatened. These women often leave their births suffering from post traumatic stress, unable to cope with the demands of motherhood, and uncertain how to heal.
Founder Sara Melone understand this all too well. Having experienced more than one traumatic birth, she expanded a thriving birth photography business (Kissa Photography) into a busy birth support business - KissaBelly Birth Arts.
While new moms are generally focusing on the needs of pregnancy and new babies, KissaBelly Birth Arts seeks to redirect attention, to focus on the mother's needs. With labor and postpartum doula care alongside reiki treatments, specialized massage, essential oils, peer counseling, placenta encapsulation, birth and newborn photography, and classes on everything from childbirth and ayurvedic medicine, to postpartum meal prep, KissaBelly Birth Arts is pulling out all the stops to care for new mothers.
Says Melone, "When we nourish, strengthen, and support women - especially during labor and postpartum - we effectively nourish, strengthen, and support an entire generation."
