HypnoBirthing® Infant Massage Certification

A wonderful adjunct to all Massage Therapists and Birthing Professionals – Childbirth Educators,
Doulas, Midwives, Doctors and Nurses, and to anyone who works
 with parents and is interested in fostering healthy family relationships


Teaching Parents to Relax and Enhance their Relationship with their Babies through Touch

Students will learn how to teach parents to massage their babies. Underlying the basics of massage strokes and routines that parents are taught is the empowerment and trust that parents learn. Every pregnant parent has an idealized vision of what life will be like after the baby is born; sometimes that vision becomes the reality, and the love affair between parent and baby is amazing.  Sometimes, however, the reality is less than perfect, and parents may feel clueless, lost, or even at war with their babies. They are willing to do whatever it takes to become the parent they know they can be. Teaching this class to parents satisfies the needs of both groups: it will enhance the perfect relationship, and it will help the troubled relationship to become peaceful and relaxed. 

This two-day class teaches several of the relaxation techniques that are part of the HypnoBirthing® philosophy and training, but being a HypnoBirthing® Instructor or Parent is not a prerequisite. Students will receive certification as a “HypnoBirthing Infant Massage Educator”, and CEU credit hours for Massage Therapists and HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educators. Other professional CEUs may be available in the future.

Tuition for the 2-day class includes text, a syllabus for teaching parent classes, handouts that can be copied and distributed to parents,  and a lifelike baby doll (a $50 value) to use as a teaching aid in future classes.
