Professional Testimonial: Jacqui has been using my videos with her clients and students...

"As a doula and childbirth educator I utilize Yiska Obadia's amazing 'Comforting Touch for Parents' videos regularly with my clients. Her videos help expecting parents get comfortable with practicing loving touch and counter-pressure to prepare for birth (the massage techniques can also be used in the postpartum period and beyond). They teach the support partners how to make their touch be most ideal as well as how to maintain longevity and stamina within their bodies since labor is a marathon. These videos are just a few minutes long, but bright gems that help expecting parents prepare, feel confident, and comfortable for their big day. Thank you Yiska for sharing your wisdom with the birth community."

You care about your people and you want them to have everything they need to feel capable, confident, skillful, empowered and prepared for birth.

 

You know Comforting Touch is a huge part of the preparation that gives birthing people and their partners confidence leading up to birth. The kind of confidence that helps them stay home longer and need you later.

 

Hey, there's no shame in making your job easier!

You also know how important partner support in labor is for their partnership, and entering parenthood feeling securely bonded and supported.

 

As one client shared, “I can feel to this day, my husband’s hip squeezes in labor, how good it felt.” 

Comforting Touch is the main attraction for most expectant couples to any kind of childbirth education. How amazing to *include it in your service package!

 

*Birth-workers report significantly greater use of classes and resources included in their packages compared with classes and resources recommended separately.

This makes it easy for you do that, adding value to your packages by including these resources with them.

Hi, I'm Yiska Obadia and I've been a bodyworker for nearly 30 years. After attending my first birth in 2001, I became a doula and eventually created Comforting Touch classes for doulas and expectant parents after realizing how much I could offer from my collective experiences working with thousands of pregnant, postpartum and birth doula clients over the years. Making touch more accessible, comfortable, sustainable, and supportive has become one of my life's greatest passions; offering doulas, midwives, birth educators, pregnant people and their perinatal counterparts the insights and skills they need to share Comforting Touch with confidence.

Provider Testimonial:

 

"Touch is healing and such an essential part of feeling safe and connected, a critical aspect in the birth journey. Yiska’s comforting touch class is a must for all the families in our midwifery practice. The families love it and find it such an unexpected bonus. This aspect of partner support really should be available to anyone and I’m very fortunate to have crossed paths with Yiska and found out about her work. Best of all, this is the kind of skill that you continue to use beyond pregnancy."

FAQ's:

What's included in the on-demand class? The class covers a clear explanation of the gate control theory of pain, as well as other principles of Comforting Touch designed to improve partner's support skills and boost confidence, especially during labor. They will learn counter-pressure techniques, like the hip squeeze (taught with my signature sustainability approach) as well as techniques for back labor support. They will also learn massage and other relaxation techniques and understand what to do (and not do), and when, as well as how to modify for different positions throughout labor. The class even covers a bit about pelvic balancing as it relates to optimal fetal positioning, reinforcing the significance of this component of pregnancy and birth.

Does it matter how many clients I have? No. You'll have unlimited access to share it with all of your personal clients for the full length of your yearly subscription.

 

Do you just send me an access link when I sign up? Yep! You'll receive an email after purchase with your personal link to pass along to your clients whenever and however you wish. You can also promote this value-added resource in your marketing.

What happens at the end of the year? You will have an opportunity to renew and receive a new access link for the following year. Though you will likely want to renew, you are under no obligation to do so and will not be charged unless you actively renew.

What about my clients who are un-partnered? While much of the content is geared toward couples, your single clients may wish to watch and practice with a friend or family member, and will benefit from the parts of the resource page that offer self-applied comfort measures, and the baby massage portion.
