BirthTouch® is an authentic experience for birth professionals because Kathy Morelli makes learning about therapeutic touch so accessible, so easy and so much fun. She is a wisdom keeper who expertly knows the systems of the body and offers her background so doulas and parents feel comfortable and confident with BirthTouch.® I highly enjoyed and easily recommend BirthTouch® by Kathy Morelli. She adds an important learning to all maternal health professionals who want to expand their own skills with Birth Touch and for expectant parents who want to offer comfort for labor and life with BirthTouch®.

Kathy Morelli’s book, BirthTouch® is a powerful guide for the expectant mom to help her be joyful, to address stress, negative thoughts and emotions and fears, and to learn to be in the moment with her pregnancy and her baby.

I became interested in Kathy’s techniques as a way to manage pain during a natural labor. It was a huge success and I delivered naturally after only 45 minutes at the hospital. But more than that, her relaxation and bonding techniques brought my husband and I closer together and helped us to connect with our baby throughout the pregnancy. Until I practiced the guided imagery described in this book, I had not considered that I was not just giving birth to a baby but rather a person with an “individual and big spirit.” How exciting! Kathy made it all seem “real” and helped us enjoy the process that much more. Unlike most pregnancy books which stop at labor, this one will help you navigate the emotional transition into motherhood.
