Students will be able to understand and recognize contraindications, possible complications, and risk factors of pregnancy, comfort techniques for labor, and restoring musculature and postural integrity postpartum.  Early bonding in the womb is explained, as well as, events that can change the bonding during labor, the immediate hours after birth, and attachment issues postpartum.

Students will enjoy lots of hands-on practice with pregnant mother volunteers, a mock labor among peers, and postpartum restoration.

Imagine being supported with massage that addresses your physiological, structural and emotional wellbeing during pregnancy, labor and postpartum. Imagine, too, your baby receiving the same. Massage therapists and other health professionals with specialized training in Perinatal Massage, and Infant Massage  are available to offer such support.  

Studies show that pregnancy massage can relieve muscle and joint pain, improve circulation, reduce edema, help regulate hormones, ease stress and anxiety, and improve the outcome of labor and newborn health. Pediatric massage offers a host of benefits, the most profound being nurturing touch, which creates a deep and lasting bond between baby and caregivers. Researchers discovered, too, that infant massage encourages weight gain, good digestion, immune and neurological function and promotes restful sleep. For infants with health challenges, massage can provide the physical and psychological reinforcement to foster healing.

Master Trainer, Tammy Roecker, offers instruction for both specializations at Healing Arts Connection Continuing Education Center. She is the Founder and President of the Early Bonding Foundation and an AZ Licensed, Nationally Certified Massage Therapist for over 20 years, with specialized training in Pre-and Perinatal Massage. She is also a Certified Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Personal Trainer focused on Perinatal Fitness. Her interest in pre and perinatal massage began with the search for her own pre-conception to postpartum care, and her focus on infant massage and early bonding techniques began when they helped alleviate her own child’s colic.  

Perinatal Massage  is designed for LMTs and healthcare professionals with an understanding of female reproductive anatomy. Students learn about contraindications, possible complications and risk factors of pregnancy, comfort techniques for labor, and restoration of postpartum musculature and postural integrity. They also glean information on bonding in the womb, during labor and after birth, as well as postpartum attachment issues.
