We offer complete prenatal care and bring our experience and guidance in one-to-one attendance during labor and birth at Center for Birth. We provide postpartum care for mother & baby in the first weeks, and support families through this transformative process. Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, a birth center birth is a great option!

Linda Embrey, LMP

Linda Embrey, LMP, specializes in Deep Muscle Therapy, a firm, effective and gentle way to help you relaxe and soothe away general aches and pains of pregnancy. Deep body massage improves immune function simply by stimulating blood and lymph flow, loosening joints, and clearing waste products, which then enhances breathing, soothes the nervous system and relaxes the mind. The ability to relax is especially important during childbirth. Massage therapy is beneficial for developing a deeper sense of inner harmony and balance as the mother progresses through the natural stages of pregnancy and post-natal care.

Over her thirty year career Linda has had special training Mayan Abdominal Massage, as well as pregnancy, postpartum and infant massage. She also teaches pregnancy massage to partners. Housecalls and Gift Certificates are available.

To schedule, call Linda or schedule appointments online.
