Massage Therapy - Prenatal Massage & Postnatal Massage

Massage promotes relaxation, but can also relieve many uncomfortable conditions during pregnancy, such as back pain, swelling, and general tightness / soreness that is common in pregnancy.

 

Postnatal massage can help restore the muscles after birth and it allows the abdomen to return to pre-pregnancy status.

 

Family Birth Center massages are available to the public.  Our resident massage therapists, Cheryl Bernardi, LMT (MA 66409) and Ali Gardella, LMT (MA 76999) are certified in prenatal massage.

Doula services

A birth doula offers non-medical, one-on-one care during labor and birth. A doula provides nurturing care and support that traditional obstetrical care does not.

 

A birth doula supports you and your partner by providing the knowledge, comfort and education necessary for a fulfilling birth experience using techniques, such as:

  • Massage

  • Counter-pressure

  • Visualization

  • Relaxation

  • Education

  • Advocacy

 

Clinical studies show the benefits of working with a birth doula include:

  • 50% reduction in cesarean rates

  • 60% reduction in the rate of epidural use

  • 40% reduction in the need for forceps

  • Higher breastfeeding rates

  • Higher levels of confidence in partners as coaches

  • Increased maternal sense of satisfaction in the birth

  • Overall sense of well-being following delivery

  • Easier transition into parenthood

 

This is why the Family Birth Center of Naples offers in-house doula services for all of our clients.
