Bavia "Spa-Spital" Services Improve Hospital Patient Satisfaction by Mothering the Mother Now Available on the West Coast
Date:12/4/2012

Issaquah, Wash. (PRWEB) December 04, 2012

Childbirth is often painful and always unpredictable, but postpartum recovery doesn’t have to be. New mothers are finally able to leave the hospital healthier and happier with Postnatal Body Therapy™ by Bavia™. This postnatal massage service is now available at the Swedish/Issaquah campus.

Bavia converts the typical hospital stay into a “spa-spital” experience. But the goal of Bavia isn’t about luxury — rather, it’s about creating a healing environment and providing health benefits for mom.

Soft candlelight, soothing music and aromatherapy combined with gentle massage, eucalyptus steamed foot wraps and heated temple treatment immediately release pressure, erase fatigue and decrease pain, while stimulating milk production for nursing confidence. Pricing and cost information is at http://www.bavia.com. Mom can order on site, or friends can pre-order services as the ultimate shower gift

“Most parents prepare extensively for the birth of their baby,” says Wendy Colgan, RNC-OB, MSN, Nurse Manager of OB & Pediatrics at Swedish/Issaquah. “They attend childbirth preparation classes, talk to family and friends, and develop comprehensive birth plans. Few focus on the immediate postpartum period and all of the associated challenges: breastfeeding difficulties, hormonal changes and sleep deprivation, just to name a few. The services provided by Bavia combine massage, imagery and aromatherapy to assist new moms with a successful transition to the postpartum period. Swedish/Issaquah is excited to be the first hospital in Washington State to offer Bavia's services.”

Services are proven to immediately reduce pain, improve lactation and decrease anxiety while also raising important patient satisfaction scores. Clients report an average decrease in pain of 3 points on the traditional 10 point pain scale. On the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers (HCAHPS) measurement for “Recommendation,” Bavia clients score their hospitals a 98 percent, which is 28-percent higher than the national average of 70 percent.

“Childbirth doesn’t end with victory beers and medals, even though it’s harder than a marathon,” says Bavia founder, CEO Rachel Swardson. “I kept thinking ‘There must be a better way to bring a mother into this world.’ Ice chips and crackers were just not enough to prepare us mom for the demands of modern motherhood.” Swardson launched Bavia during the economic crisis of 2008 as a newly single mother with 3 small children. She bootstrapped her way by selling everything from wedding rings to furniture and has since raised $2million in funding to expand to 26 hospitals, Swedish being the newest and first on the west coast. Bavia plans to add 26 hospitals in 2013, thirteen slots are already filled.

Bavia (bah-VEE-yah) means “inner beauty” in Hindi. This company has fulfilled a significant need to help mothers feel better, decrease anxiety, improve sleep in the hospital and enhance milk production for better nursing.
