Susan's story is about helping people, of all ages, feel better with her healing touch: sometimes lightly and sometimes not. Susan talks about how she got introduced to massage and about the different styles of massage she's presently learning. Her advice to people looking get into this line of work: make sure you learn anatomy very well.
A doula, also known as a labour coach, is a nonmedical person who assists a woman before, during, or after childbirth, as well as her partner and/or family by providing information, physical assistance, and emotional support.

Doulas vs. Midwives - A doula and a midwife are not the same thing, though they can often work well together. Midwives are medically trained and focus on delivering a healthy baby during labor, whereas doulas offer mental, physical, and emotional support to the mother and family before, during and after labor but do not have medical training or experience
