About Yiska Obadia


Supporting people through and around the birth experience is one of my greatest passions. With nearly 3 decades of experience as an acupuncturist and massage therapist, I offer a wide range of services and classes geared toward supporting expectant families with comforting touch education and other forms of birth preparation and postpartum support. In addition to teaching partner support classes and doula workshops, I offer pre and postnatal bodywork, acupuncture, closing of the bones, and more.


Q: What's your top piece of advice for an expectant mom?

A: My best advice for any parent-to-be is to invest in preparation for this deeply transformational life experience. For birth and postpartum. Don't think you can just wing it. Take the birth class. Hire the doula(s). You will not regret having the education and support.

Q: Are there any specialities in who you serve? (e.g. home birth, VBAC, etc.)

A: I'm a great fit for partners who want to be very hands-on and people who love massage. My specialty is Comforting Touch and my favorite thing to offer are prenatal birth classes for expectant couples, teaching partners how to offer the best possible support and caring touch, during pregnancy and when the birthing day comes!
