Pregnancy Massage Case Study Call Out

I'm very excited to announce that Indre will be undertaking the Massage & Pregnancy Diploma with Well Mother in May. This qualification is quite frankly the global gold standard of pregnancy massage courses, and what I personally hold, and which BMT have supported a few practitioners in attaining.

“This is the core training course for massage therapists wishing to specialise in pregnancy massage and be able to work confidently during all three trimesters as well as being able to work with the “higher risk” client (eg clients suffering from pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes etc) … After receiving the diploma students can feel confident that they have one of the most rigorous pregnancy massage qualifications in the world.”

What’s a girl gotta do?

At the start of May Indre will be looking for a small number of women who are pregnant and who are willing to be case studies for her, who are willing to commit to at least 4 massage appointments with her, of approximately 60-90 minutes duration over the course of a couple of months. Indre will also need to complete one massage in the first trimester (yes it’s safe … read this), one post natal massage, and one pregnancy massage lesson with a birthing partner. There will be a fee for these appointments, but they will not be charged at the full BMT rate because you are helping Indre complete her continued learning!

Interested?

So, if you are interested, or know someone who might be, please email Indre directly to introduce yourself, and she’ll pop you on a list, and send you further details after her course.

Further research

Oh, and if you have something pregnancy and massage related that you’re dying to know, do let Indre know, as it’ll be great for her research and might even lead to the topic of her written project … which I’m hoping we can turn into a few articles for your interest and pleasure. For your info, I wrote about massage and fathers-to-be, whilst Thea investigated the importance of sleep and how pregnancy affects this through the different trimesters.
