Massage during pregnancy is a therapeutic type of bodywork that is designed to address the needs of the pregnant woman as her body goes through the typical changes of gestation. Massage can be received in all stages of pregnancy and is very safe and often recommended by medical physicians, obstetricians, midwives and other related professionals. The gentle, noninvasive approach of prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor, and give her nurturing emotional support.
Studies have shown many maternal and newborn benefits when a relaxing massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care. Regular massage is the way to go throughout your pregnancy and you’re allowed to have massages as often as you like.
