10 Hour CE Course
Do you have the Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy textbook? See your enrollment options above for "I already own the text".
Based on Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy by Carole Osborne-Sheets, this course presents the conceptual preparation you need to confidently locate further training or deepen what you’ve already learned about pre- and perinatal massage. Combining research, scholarship and compassion, the author shares how she individualizes her work with childbearing women in a wide variety of circumstances. The recommendations on how and when to adapt or avoid particular techniques are especially valuable. This course does not teach hands-on skills. Please seek additional experience, with a mentor, to add hands-on skills.

It was very beneficial to me to be able to print out the test so that I could prepare to take it finally. As a man without children, I really enjoyed learning about this topic as it affects the woman.

I found it very helpful to be able to print out my test prior to taking it. It was nice to have it with me as I read along. I really enjoyed this course and will use you in the future for my distance learning.

I found the course to be excellent in content and readied me for taking a hands-on course in pre-natal massage.
Elaine Mosessian, LMT, NCTMB
Very interesting information. It will become useful where I work especially with our women's health therapist.
Erin McCabe, LMT
This course taught me SO much. As an expectant mother and massage therapist I took in an abundance of information not only to help my clients, but I've also learned so much for myself too. After taking this course, I have changed my mind about the epidural and am excited to take on the challenge of having an all natural birth in order to make sure I have a successful birth as well as ensure the mother to child bond. I am also going to start looking for a massage therapist or doula who will be able to assist me in my own birth. I am very excited to get a pregnant woman on my table!
Dawn Casella, LMT
I enjoyed this course and feel like I gained some valuable information. I feel like I can definitely offer better support for my pregnant and/or laboring clients!
Wendy Elwood, LMT
Excellent course. I work in a chiropractic with many pregnant clients. I feel more at ease at what I should and shouldn't be doing. Thanks for great information!!
Very interesting and provides valuable information if a therapist wishes to add the prenatal modality to their practice. Course is user friendly.
Terri Simao, CMT, NCTMB
I think a video would be helpful, but overall a very in depth study and i learned a lot. i have helped my first mother and baby through pregnancy...and the baby to be able to settle into this world through massage.

Great course, I am very happy with the amount of knowledge I have gained from this course.
Demetria Gamble, LMBT
This course really surprised me, it went into great detail and had more information than I thought it would. It was very challenging. I am very pleased with this course. I am now looking for a hands on course to add to the subject and material.
This informative course was very detailed, challenging, and well-rounded. It reinforced how valuable massage can be for a pregnant woman; before, during, or after she gives birth.
Cory Chase, LMT
There was a lot to learn in the book that I did not know about and I feel more confident when giving a massage to someone who is pregnant. I am glad that I can always read up on the book at anytime I need it.
Debra J. Abitz, LMT
I am thrilled that you offer home study courses from valuable experts in the field straight from their books. I will now have this awesome book in my library to refer to whenever I need it!
