The Mothertouch™ Maternity Massage Certification is offered twice a year at Oregon School of Massage and occasionally at other locations. One of the most comprehensive prenatal, birth, and postnatal bodywork programs available, the 65-hour certification includes 44.5 hours of extensive hands-on training, 17 hours of reviewed case studies, a written exam, and a final project. Those certified will have more advanced training than the majority of pregnancy massage therapists in the country, have better access to employment as a pre and perinatal bodywork specialist, be more respected in the medical and birth professional community, and be the one that client’s looking for trustworthy practitioners will seek out.
MotherTouch courses required for Maternity Massage Certification include:
Prenatal Bodywork Training – 32 hours
Massage & Acupressure for Birth – 4.5 hours
Bodywork for the New Mother – 8 hours
Maternity Massage Certification Practicum – 21.5 hours
