This course teaches complete protocols for both pregnancy and postpartum sessions.
NEVER TURN A PREGNANT CLIENT AWAY AGAIN!  Gain the skills to work with your client’s changing body. Be part of the magic and mystery of pregnancy – honoring and supporting the mother-baby bond. Feel confident giving a safe, therapeutic and firm massage throughout your client’s pregnancy and postpartum.

Nurturing the Mother® has certified massage therapists in pregnancy and postpartum massage since 1990. This method utilizes a comfortable, secure side- lying position to avoid undue pressure on a growing abdomen and the lower back. Mothers are completely supported by pillows, keeping hip, knee and ankle on the same level to avoid pulling on the sacroiliac joint and to maximize blood and lymph circulaiton. Side-lying is the safest for mother and baby, and educates the client about the ideal sleeping position.

Regional Education INFORMATION:

Regional Education:  The state of North Carolina divided up into 6 small geographical areas (by counties) to provide low-cost, continuing education & networking opportunities at a local/close- to-home locale.  It is the goal of AMTA-NC  to subdivide these 6 regions again & have 12 regions throughout the state thereby doubling the opportunities for CE’s and saving time & money in travel.  To achieve this we need more coordinators. Please consider helping your AMTA-NC Chapter & membership by volunteering as a Regional Education Coordinator.

Triad Regional Education Coordinator

T.A.G. Woods

The first time I heard about AMTA was while studying at Body Therapy Institute. I became a student member and later a professional member.  I joined mainly for the liability insurance coverage. I enjoyed glancing through the Hands-On® newsletter and reading mtj® that all AMTA members receive.

It was years later that I began utilizing some of the other membership benefits, attending AMTA-NC conventions, reading and sharing research and position statements. At an AMTA-NC Convention in Raleigh, Ed Sansbury awarded me a 10 year member gift. I thought that was really nice and I was touched that an organization as large as AMTA would recognize and appreciate a member like me.

More years past and during the AMTA-NC Convention in 2011 I attended a volunteers’ luncheon. I was volunteered to volunteer as Triad Unit Coordinator. That “what just happened” moment was the beginning of my truly understanding the many, many benefits of AMTA that are available to all our members. I am grateful to that person who volunteered me.

As an AMTA-NC volunteer I receive email communications from our BOD, attend meetings and conference calls. As I get to know our BOD I witness their passion and commitment to the AMTA mission statement,“To serve AMTA members while advancing the art, science and practice of massage therapy.” These remarkable women and men carry those words in their hearts and live their lives accordingly.

Two of my passions are learning and teaching. The primary responsibility of Unit Coordinators is to organize local continuing education for the unit’s members.  It is a joy to talk, meet and work with many extraordinary teachers, especially those who call NC home. I attended my first Unit CE class as part of the training for Unit Coordinator. I cannot believe that I had never taken advantage of this great benefit of affordable, local Unit CE’s! I hope you will join us and utilize this AMTA benefit.

I was graced to have been awarded a scholarship for the 2012 AMTA National Convention in Raleigh, NC as an extremely generous thank you for the work I have performed as Triad Unit Coordinator. It was an excellent opportunity to meet our AMTA National leaders and those from various Chapters throughout the US as well as the Massage Therapy Foundation leaders. They are heart-centered professionals working tirelessly “to serve AMTA members while advancing the art, science and practice of massage therapy.”
