Postpartum Massage Training

Postpartum Massage Training / Massage for Lossbirth, for Doulas, Midwives, Maternity Nurses, Pregnancy Yoga Teachers

 

Massage in the postpartum period can be very supportive for the new mother to reconnect to her body, integrate the birth experience, to give space for all of the -sometimes complex- emotions of becoming a parent as well as supporting the breastfeeding journey.

In this 2-day training we will cover the following:

  • Lymphatic drainage via reflexology on the foot
  • Massage of the legs, lower and upper back, shoulders, rocking in prone position
  • Massage of the breasts
  • Hormonal balancing via foot reflexology
  • Massage of the shoulders / upper back / neck / face / head in supine position
  • Lymphatic stroking of arms and legs
  • Massage of the belly, including how to massage when there is a c-section scar
  • Massage when there is a loss birth (miscarriage, abortion, stillbirth)
  • Visualisation
  • Rocking

The 2-day training is accessible for those who have completed the 3-day Pregnancy Massage Training and who have build up some experiencing in giving (full body) massages. You can also participate if you have experience in massaging pregnant people and/or if you have massage experience and have good knowledge about pregnancy and birth (i.e. childbirth educators, doulas, midwives, kraamverzorgenden) If you do not meet these requirements, you can send an email to discuss.

The training is taught by Joyce Hoek-Pula and Marlies Phielix. Both are experienced doulas, masseuses, doula trainers and Spinning Babies® Parent Educators.

We work in small groups of a maximum of 12-14 participants with two trainers. This ensures that there is a lot of personal attention and space for hands on practice and questions. You will be practicing on each others; even though that is on bare skin, the one who’s being massaged is mostly covered during the full massage. Draping and covering is an important part to create safety, comfort and a feeling of being cared for.
