NUHS graduate plans to use massage therapy to help pregnant women

Autumn Hildreth started the massage therapy program at National University to supplement a future career as a doula, a trained specialist who assists women during the birth process.

In addition to offering pain relief, massage therapy has a number of medical benefits for pregnant women. The medical aspect of the massage therapy program, including classes in physiology and anatomy helped cement Hildreth's decision to attend NUHS. As a student, she also discovered a number of other career options including working as part of a team of midwives or for a chiropractor specializing in pregnancy.

Watch the video below to learn more about Hildreth's decision to attend National University's massage therapy program.
