Course Description


Discover the benefits of massage during pregnancy. This course will help you understand the many physiological, structural and psychological changes that occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy. You will also discover how beneficial massage is before, during and after labour. You will gain the confidence and guidance to apply appropriate therapeutic massage to your pregnant client.


Learn how to demonstrate massage techniques for labour. Massage can be used during the birth, to make it easier and more comfortable for the mother. A well prepared partner offering positive support during labour will assist in maintaining relaxation and focus for the labouring mum. In this workshop we will learn how to equip our clients to utilise massage for labour.

We will focus on:

  • How and when to recommend massage for labour
  • How to prepare a partner massage session
  • Specific massage techniques for labour
  • Focus on the latent first stage of labour and points to support the labouring woman


This course offers in-depth insight into how to support women through pregnancy and beyond. We will review in great detail specific conditions, including high-risk pregnancies, and the implication of massage. Our focus is to support all women and reduce the more complex discomforts experienced in pregnancy. We will develop your awareness of the benefits of massage through the perinatal journey from pre-conception to pregnancy to labour and birth and onto postnatal support.

During the course you gain a greater insight into the complex body and system changes happening through pregnancy, labour and postnatal.

We will explore your own emotive feelings towards pregnancy, labour and beyond so you can apply practical tools to support all clients with empathy and understanding. You will explore your own self-development as a pregnancy massage specialist.

By the end of the course you will have developed the confidence and knowledge needed to treat pregnant women throughout their journey into motherhood and beyond. You will also have the opportunity to become part of the NurtureLife® network including the support of our mentoring program (learn more about this on our website) and have a team of practitioners around you to support you and refer clients to if required.


Postnatal massage promotes relaxation and relieves anxiety having a positive effect to ease postpartum blues. The mother’s body will be adjusting and undergoing many changes. There are many considerations in supporting and nurturing a new mum and baby.

We will focus on:

  • Massage after a natural birth
  • Massage after caesarean
  • Massage to rebalance the body
  • Massage to relieve tension from breast feeding
