Testimonial: "Loved it! Well done! This dvd offers a ton of instruction in a caring and compassionate way, that is not intimidating or overwhelming. Best to watch in small segments and then practice though, as there is just too much info to get all at once. Just get yourself situated comfortably, and try out the things she is demonstrating right then and there!"" E. Eckian, Mother.

TESTIMONIAL: "My partner practiced all these techniques for weeks before labor started! How great it was to take that time to connect, and it helped us stay connected through my labor.

leslie 2010 copyLeslIE  twinsMy name is Leslie Stager. I’m a maternity massage specialist, author and instructor, and I’ve attended over 500 births as a labor & delivery nurse, doula, and massage therapist. I made MotherTouch DVDs to train birth companions in simple massage techniques and maternity acupressure to help birthing women experience support and ease. Maternity massage and acupressure during Pregnancy decreases depression, pain, anxiety, and leads to healthier babies and safer births! Massage and acupressure during Birth can speed labor, decrease medical interventions, relieve pain, and lead to happier, more confident mothering. During Postpartum, massage and acupressure can contribute to diminished depression and improved milk production, and help realign posture and relieve pain!!.
