Joanne's healing hands

I teach Baby’s First Massage to all of my doula clients. I think of it as a lifelong gift to each baby I have greeted at birth. Please check out some articles regarding the benefit of infant massage.

Studies indicate that performing infant massage decreases depressive symptoms and significantly improves mother-infant interaction for women with postpartum depression.


Joanne, I want to let you know that right after you left Joy had the biggest poop of her life! Sorry if that’s too much information, but wanted you to know that your digestive massage REALLY worked! Wow!! It was very easy for her and she was so content afterward.
