Prenatal massage is adapted around the changes you go through during pregnancy. Blessing the world with a new wonderful human can be a strain for the one carrying the baby and this can result in both physical and mental fatigue, feeling of heaviness, fluid build up in the body and for some also nausea and pain.
The massage can help remove or relieve these symptoms and help you go through this wonderful time in your life a little easier.
Prenatal massages are generally considered safe after the first trimester, as long as you have the ok from your doctor.
The massage is adapted to your needs and preferences at the specific point in your pregnancy. This means propping the bed with extra pillows to ensure you are comfortable.
After the first trimester most think it uncomfortable to lay on the stomach and as the baby bump gets bigger it can also be a challenge to lay on the back . The extra weight can put pressure on major blood vessels and cause nausea and dizziness. For this reason we normally recommend a side lying position as this support the belly, gives good access for the therapist and enables you to relax fully.
