Continuing Education - Postpartum Massage

After childbirth a woman enters a time of transition as she settles into motherhood. She is bonding with her baby, establishing feeding and sleep routines. She is also healing physically, mentally and emotionally from the birth experience.
Massage is a powerful tool for new mothers to feel relaxed, nurtured and ease tired and tense muscles. Providing massage to the postpartum mother is a sweet and supportive offering. Women are able to either bring baby with or allow a trusted caretaker to be with baby while she relaxes. 
We will explore positioning, massage techniques, traditional postpartum practices and communication appropriate for a woman after she has given birth. 
In this one-day workshop, students will gain:

  •  A deeper understanding of the postpartum period
  • Understand physical and hormonal shifts during postpartum 
  • Learn techniques that work to offer relief and support for a woman during one of the most empowering and important events in her life.
  • Belly binding and comfort measures will be discussed as well as contraindications.
