Hi, I'm Jojo Hogan

I am so delighted to have you here! It is my life’s work to care for, nurture
and support mothers, babies and families throughout their childbirth year.

In 2005 I created the Bella Mama Pregnancy Spa & Wellness Centre where, along with my team of committed and compassionate therapists, we cared for over 10,000 pregnant mothers and families throughout the special journey that was their pregnancies, births and transition into parenthood.
After running Bella Mama for 14 years, I made the choice to devote myself
wholeheartedly to the one-on-one focussed care of my mamas and the creation of the international Slow Postpartum Movement.

I truly believe that when all mothers, babies and new families are born into a place of love, respect and compassion, this in turn ripples out into their families, communities and the world.  Changing it for the better.  

I would love to share this special work with you and help you to experience a postpartum with your new baby filled with joy, bliss and ease.  Because when you are nurtured, nourished, supported and celebrated you are more easily able to offer the same to your newborn baby from a place of health and well being.

With love  Jojo x

 Jojo is very empathetic, funny, warm, kind and just a lovely person! I felt that postnatal support was not just a job for her but she genuinely cared about me and my family. She listened to what I needed, was incredibly thoughtful and her extensive experience in postpartum care was evident so I trusted her knowledge and advice. Jojo is also a wonderful cook and made me loads of delicious, nutritious meals. She gives the best massages I’ve ever had and I loved the postpartum yoga sessions with her. I felt really supported and having Jojo around allowed me to have a little time to myself each week and to enjoy the things that I love, as well as ensuring that I was getting healthy meals and snacks. My partner also really enjoyed Jojo’s visits and he also got on really well with her. He said he would definitely contact her again if we decide to have another child. He also says that he personally felt very supported by her too and could talk to her about anything. Having Jojo’s support was completely worth every penny for us.

   My exclusive Slow Postpartum support packages start in your pregnancy and include a wide range of offerings including *.

* some services available in person only

Pregnancy & postnatal massages, reflexology treatments and belly binding. 

The weeks both before and after birth are a time of great change and this, along with your body's transformation can sometimes cause stress levels and discomforts to arise. That's why it's so important to gift yourself the time to be cared for and nurtured. Regular massage treatments both before and after birth are a necessity rather than a luxury, giving you the space to deeply relax and rejuvenate and the time to enjoy your pregnancy and transition into motherhood. Following the birth of your baby, specialist warm herbal wraps and belly binding can help to restore your abdomen and support your core.

Specialist postnatal nutrition coaching, meal planning & cooking 

Optimal nutrition including regular healthy meals and snacks is one of the most important things we can do during the postpartum weeks to help with birth recovery and breastfeeding. However many people don't realise that there are specific food guidelines associated with optimal postpartum healing as well as foods that we should definitely avoid.  With specialist training in postpartum cooking and recipes, I will ensure that you are nourished with delicious and nutritious meals in the postpartum weeks.

Making a postpartum plan, building your 'village', and negotiating relationship and family dynamics

Bringing a new baby  into your family is a time for joy and celebration but  it is a time when you need more than ever to be supported by others. It also is a period that redefines your relationships and family dynamics. When this is not thought about and planned for, it can add stress and strain to your postpartum experience and you may end up feeling lonely, unsupported and struggling to connect with your partner or family. When working together we will create a postpartum plan to ensure that you receive the support that you need as well as understanding how we can best 'baby proof' your relationships.

Guidance on postpartum body care and healing including abdominal and pelvic rehabilitation, pelvic floor strengthening and breast feeding support

Many new mothers are left feeling shocked and overwhelmed by the changes in their body following pregnancy and birth as well as the intensity of the breastfeeding journey..  However when we understand what to expect in the normal transition from the pregnant to the postpartum state as well as  from the first weeks of breastfeeding, we can mitigate many problems and complications that may arise.  I will help you prepare your body for postpartum healing and be there to support your breastfeeding journey.

Postpartum yoga & mindfulness and baby massage lessons

In my experience, the practise of yoga and mindfulness in the weeks following birth can be one of the most profound and powerful tools for a new mother to have at her disposal.  And let's be clear, it's not about doing lots of physical yoga postures or even unrolling your mat. It's more about understanding how to be in the present moment with your baby. To breathe, to relax and to honour this special journey as a deep and powerful spiritual transformation.  As a yoga teacher with over 20 years experience, I can help you benefit from this ancient practise  during your postpartum weeks with your new baby.  I will also teach you the wonderful benefits of baby yoga and massage so your newborn can join in!

Natural therapies including aromatherapy and postpartum herbs.

There are many natural therapies that can help to support your postpartum healing and recovery.  With specialist training in aromatherapy and herbal support I will create personalised products for you to aid your rejuvenation.

Infant and family sleep education 

Understanding normal infant sleep and how we can best support the optimal sleep environment for a newborn baby can be key in helping your new family get enough rest.  As a trained infant sleep coach I will help you to get a clear understanding as to what constitutes normal newborn sleep behaviours as well as support you to get the rest that you will need in the first weeks and months postpartum.  I do not offer 'sleep training' for newborn babies but instead will work gently with your baby's unique personality so that they feel completely safe, nurtured and responded to.

Emotional support, nurturing & care

Becoming a mother  or parent may be one of the most potent, powerful and life changing transformations that you will experience.  And as with any major life transition, it comes with both joys and challenges.  Having someone there  who has empathy and experience,  who will  hold space and support you as you move through this time will help ensure that you receive the love, emotional support and nurturing care that you so need and deserve .  When talking about the benefits of my work to others, I explain that, more than anything, it's about love.  When a new mother feels loved, cherished and supported she is able to move easily and confidently into her new life.

Jojo has been an absolute godsend for our family. She is a really special person and genuinely passionate about supporting families through the postnatal period. She came and looked after us all and made herself invaluable - cooking nutritious meals for the entire family and emotionally supporting both myself and my husband. She is also extremely knowledgeable about her subject - whether it be infant sleep, nutrition, baby's developmental leaps etc. Her massages are phenomenal - as someone who regularly has massages I can safely say she is the best masseuse I have ever been to. She is kind, caring and intuitive and I have been able to speak honestly and openly about any issues that have come up. My advice is don't hesitate! Having Jojo’s postnatal doula support is the best investment you could make post birth and so much more valuable than any bit of expensive baby kit you could buy.


Pre and Post Natal Massage Treatments

 Pregnancy Massage 

Pregnancy is a time of great change and this, along with your body's transformation and broken sleep can sometimes cause stress levels and discomforts to arise.  That's why it's so important to gift yourself the time to be cared for and nurtured.  

Regular pregnancy massage treatments give you the space to deeply relax and rejuvenate and the time to enjoy your pregnancy and transition into motherhood. Receiving massage during your pregnancy can also help ease pain and discomforts in your body such as back and hip pain, swelling and tightness in the neck and shoulders.

With over 16 years specialising in pregnancy massage, I offer treatments from my home therapy room near Crediton and home visits in some areas of Devon.

Postnatal Massage & Warming Belly Wrap

Postpartum massage treatments are an essential way to ease the discomforts in your body following your pregnancy & birth. In some parts of the world a new mother is massaged every day for 40 days following birth! Massage will help to soothe baby-care aches as well as improve energy levels and fill your cup so you can live your most vibrant life as a new mother.  

Following your massage you also may choose the addition of a postpartum belly wrap where a Javanese herb & spice paste is applied to your tummy, followed by a firm wrap and compress to warm and nourish the womb space.  As you relax with a blissful neck & scalp massage, this specialised treatment helps to soothe, tone & support your amazing belly which grew a whole new person!

Why do you need a Slow Postpartum?

All over the world people are seeing the benefits in their lives from intentionally taking the time to slow down and live more mindfully.
There is no more important time to do this than during your pregnancy and first few weeks with your new baby.

A 'Slow Postpartum' encourages new mothers and parents to honour and respect the potent and transformational weeks after giving birth, by allowing them the time and space to rest deeply, restore, heal and rejuvenate. It’s about embracing centuries-old postpartum rituals that focus on caring for a new mother or parent in order to give them the time and space that they need and desire to bond, nurture and fall in love with their new baby.  

To do a ‘Slow Postpartum’ is to resist societal pressure to ‘bounce back’ immediately after giving birth, but instead  teaches the value of ‘snuggling in’ for a period of time in order to prioritise falling deeply in love, healing and recovery. This will have lifelong benefits for you as a new parent, as well as your family, your community and the world!
