AJAX, ONTARIO, September 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ariana Horning, RMT and Birth Doula at Essense Of Birth Doulas, has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in birth support services.
Drawing on more than five years of practiced expertise in her field, Ms. Horning parlays her experiences into her position with Essense of Birth Doulas. Over the past three years, in her capacity as a birth doula, she has provided physical and emotional support for mothers during childbirth.
Clinical studies have shown that professional labour support providers, aka birth doulas, significantly improve outcomes during labour and delivery by reducing the oval risk of such interventions as cesarean births, episiotomies and vacuum and forceps assisted births. Births attended by a doula are shorter in duration, and women in labour with doula assistance request narcotic and epidural pain relief less often. A doula's value continues after birth, with higher breastfeeding success rates and more positive transitions to the new family dynamic.
Pregnancy and childbirth has always fascinated Ms. Horning, which drove her to pursue massage therapy, specifically for pregnant women. She received a diploma in massage therapy from Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy, and through the program, has worked with high-risk prenatal and postpartum mothers in a hospital setting, as well as lower-risk patients in a clinical setting. Over the past five years that she has been practicing as a registered massage therapist, she has worked with prenatal and postpartum mothers, as well as infants and children. From there, it was a natural progression for Ms. Horning to apply her hands-on skills to supporting women through childbirth.
Ms. Horning is a registered member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. She is also an active member of the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario and DoulaC.A.R.E. Inc.
Currently, Ms. Horning offers massage therapy, birth doula services, placenta encapsulation services, and a line of all-natural baby care products through Arbonne International Canada.
