Pregnancy is a wonderful, special time with its own
joys and its own issues. The goal of prenatal massage is to relax you and
address any areas of tension, discomfort and pain you may be experiencing. Because of
the hormonal changes many women experience nausea, digestive problems
and fatigue during pregnancy. "Baby
anxiety", stress and sometimes depression can also be factors that affects the body and mind
of the mother.
Back pain is a common issue as pregnancy progresses due
to the change in their body alignment as the baby grows and the mother's posture changes.
Sometimes this is also accompanied by hip pain, sciatic pain or discomfort. Fluid retention
and and swelling in the legs and feet is also common in the last stages of
Gentle therapeutic penatal massage can address these discomforts and
help you feel better. Because of the endorphins that are released during
massage, the baby will experience positive benefits also. Prenatal massage can help release
the tension and pain in the muscles as well as gently release the discomfort of excess fluids
in the hands and feet.

Important Notes about Receiving Massage While
Prenatal Massage can be done anytime
after the 1st trimester of pregnancy.
If you are
pregnant and in your 2nd or 3rd trimester, you must have a written
note from your doctor, OB/GYN, health care professional
or certified midwife in order for you to have
a massage session. You doctor or
certified midwife knows your health history, your situation and how your
pregnancy is progressing and will determine if gentle therapeutic prenatal
massage is beneficial for you. In some cases, massage may not be
beneficial during pregnancy. Threre are prenatal conditions that
require medical care, close monitoring and oftentimes complete bedrest is
prescribed by your doctor. Prenatal massage may not be allowed by your doctor /
midwife in the case of high-risk pregnancy or other complications including
abnormal high blood pressure, pre-clampsia, mislocated placenta (placenta previa) or premature detachment
of the placenta from the uterus (placental abruption) as well as others.

massage experience and gain the full benefits from it for yourself and your baby.
