“Yiska taught us massage techniques during my pregnancy that I swear changed our lives. My husband was so happy to be able to actively participate in relieving some of the tension I had with my pregnant belly and I was more than happy to receive it! We practiced relaxing while implementing the counterpressure techniques she taught us as we were preparing for labor and used them during labor itself. I gave birth vaginally, with no drugs, and truly believe that her techniques were a big part of our success. I would highly recommend Yiska to any pregnant couple regardless of their birth plan. She is amazing!” Jessie Pressman
