Alameda Bodywork Doula 1

After five years as a full-time birth doula, I have transitioned to bodywork. While many of the manual techniques were new, the greater skills and instincts for interacting with, and supporting another person, in the moment, are the same. My birth clients have always talked about the calm, grounded support I provide, and my massage clients say the same thing.

As a doula, I became fascinated with the fetal position in pregnancy and birth, and the ways physiology, environment, and stress can impact birth. This led me to Spinning Babies, Down to Earth Birth, and Birthing from Within. I eventually became a Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner and Spinning Babies Parent Educator, and my doula practice was changed by what I learned. My clients were more comfortable in pregnancy and slept well up to the end. More of their births were straightforward, and when they weren’t I often had a tool that would get things on track.

Massage training deepened my understanding of anatomy and gave me many new tools. I combine some new tools, including myofascial therapy, painless scar massage, and Dynamic Body Balancing, with those I already had, to provide balancing, comforting bodywork for pregnant and postpartum people, and everyone else.
