Nurturing the Mother®

"By nurturing the mothers,we nurture the foundation that builds our future."
Claire Marie Miller, 1990

"In 1980, newly pregnant and not feeling great, I taught a Pleasant Pregnancy workshop in South Lake Tahoe, CA that sparked my desire to teach. That desire grew as I experienced my own body during pregnancy, and received massages regularly through all trimesters, labor and postpartum. My desire turned into a passion that all women need this during their journey into motherhood. My oldest child, James, was born in 1981, after a quick, easy, completely natural hospital birth. I attribute the ease I experienced in pregnancy, labor and postpartum recovery to the many massages I received - I was Nurtured into Motherhood."  

    - Claire Marie Miller            

Since that time, Nurturing the Mother® has grown and expanded to include massage for all stages of a woman's life - fertility, pregnancy and postpartum, and menopause. Thousands of therapists have become certified and thousands of women have received nurturing. 

"By nurturing mothers and families, we nurture ourselves and we nurture the Earth. In healing, honoring and nurturing, we are one."

- Claire Marie Miller
