As promised earlier, this is a follow-up review from my prenatal massage on my experience with BabiesBellies on their postnatal jamu massage. Given that I have undergone elective Caesarean section this time round, I can only opt for the basic postnatal massage package offered by BabiesBellies as the classic packages include Ganggang which is a traditional vaginal treatment which helps to reduce excessive vaginal discharge, eliminating unpleasant smell and help to fragrant the sensitive area.
As usual, Ally was fast in responding when I informed her of my delivery and Maria, her manager was prompt in contacting me on the appropriate time to commence my postnatal massage which is at least 3 weeks post-delivery for mummies who have undergone Caesarean section. Mdm Zainab, a senior therapist was assigned for my postnatal massages and despite her busy schedule, she always tried her best to arrange for earlier slots upon availability.

I believe BabiesBellies is not a name unfamiliar to pregnant mummies. Having seen BabiesBellies in several baby fairs since my first pregnancy, I have not had the opportunity to try out their services. However, this pregnancy has not been as easy given the constant backaches and leg cramps since 2nd trimester. Therefore, prenatal massages have been constantly on my mind even before I turned 20 weeks. BabiesBellies is not the first prenatal massage I have tried. In my first pregnancy, I went for a trial session with Mother and Child Wellness at Forum Shopping Centre and found it to be underwhelming and there was little effect to speak of which subsequently led to the decision to forgo prenatal massages altogether.
For this pregnancy, BabiesBellies is the second prenatal massage service that I have sought as I have earlier purchased a prenatal massage package with Mums & Babies in Suntec. On comparison of both centres, I would have to say that I would most definitely have signed up with BabiesBellies if the location was closer to my workplace/home and I had not signed on any prenatal massage packages.
There are several factors that made me prefer BabiesBellies over the other prenatal massages I have had so far; (1) traditional Javanese massage which focuses on a fuller body massage that greatly relieved my aching body, (2) soothing lemongrass/olive oil used for massage which leaves a nice after scent and (3) reasonable and attractive pricing that makes weekly massages affordable. I cannot stress enough how important the therapist’s skills are to prenatal massages as I felt the knots in my neck, shoulder, back and legs untie and how relaxed and light I felt walking out of BabiesBellies today. If one has done sufficient research for prenatal massages, you would definitely agree that BabiesBellies offers one of the most reasonable packages for prenatal massages at $60 per session. Furthermore, for people who would prefer massage at the comfort of their own homes, they can opt for house call at $65 per session (excluding transport) which is still going to be a much better deal than the prenatal massages offered by other centres.
Being a satisfied customer, I would definitely head back for more pain-relieving prenatal massages and am looking forward to my soothing and relaxing postnatal massages with BabiesBellies upon delivery. So do stay tuned for updates on my postnatal massage experiences with BabiesBellies in a couple of months.
