Infant Massage
Free Breastfeeding Support

Bring your baby and a blanket for some infant massage fun! Infant massage facilitates bonding, and improves digestion and weight gain in babies. Come to this class to learn about some of the history and culture of infant massage and massage techniques to use with your baby.

Bi-monthly classes are offered on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10:30 am, and will follow each class with free breastfeeding support in the infant area.

Meghan grew up as the fifth child in a family of fourteen, and have always been around babies and loved them. In 2010 she caught her niece at my sister’s home birth in Virginia, which led her down the path of becoming a midwife.

Meghan has a bachelor’s degree in midwifery from the Midwives College of Utah, and moved to Cincinnati with a passion to improve Ohio’s maternity care. She regularly volunteers teaching community childbirth education classes and for the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition, and is a founder of Ohio’s chapter of National Association of Certified Professional Midwives.

Before moving to Ohio Meghan lived in San Antonio Texas for two years and worked at Birth Center Stone Oak and with home birth midwives Robin Rabenschlag, Julie Hatfield, and Janet Dirmeyer. She earned her CPM certification in 2014, and have been practicing as a home birth midwife ever since. In 2017, she became certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
