Description:

Working with women who are expecting can be an incredibly rewarding experience for a bodyworker — and it is imperative to be familiar with the precautions and adjustments in techniques necessary to work safely with a pregnant woman. The 24-hour Prenatal Massage course is designed to teach students how to provide safe and supportive massage during pregnancy, birth, and after. Students will learn about anatomical and physiological changes throughout the trimesters, as well as potential contraindications and how to recognize complications. The class emphasizes the various positioning choices appropriate for each trimester, and provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be a valuable asset to a pregnant woman’s support team.
