In this comprehensive basic class, participants will explore and review the physiological changes inherent in pregnancy and the postpartum period. Common discomforts and how to treat them effectively will be our focus. Learning to take a history will include warning signs and indications for referral. There will be two hours of hands-on or practice time with pregnant volunteers to refine techniques for side-lying massage at full-term. Following childbirth, mothers often put self-care on the back burner. Continuity of care and massage can have a profound impact on a mother‘s well-being as well as favorable affect on the mother/infant bond.
Students should bring a table, four large bed pillows or body support system, three sheets (not fitted) and two large towels. Unscented oil (no cream), comfortable clothing and note paper.
