Your body is changed and stressed in many ways during pregnancy, Your mind is also facing challenging times due to your new body image, expectations and the new challenge of parenting. Massage gives special attention to you, and also nurtures your baby’s development.


My pregnancy massage treatments are specifically designed for mums-to-be, to guide you through the months ahead with less discomfort, a better sense of wellbeing and a healthier pregnancy.

 

Support can be provided for your birth partner or other friends and family, teaching specific massage techniques to help aid YOU throughout your pregnancy and in labour. 

 

Throughout your treatments, gentle exercise routines may be demonstrated to help you benefit fully from the treatment, helping with postural problems and strengthen your body for the process of labour. 

 

During your treatment emphasis will be placed on ensuring you feel comfortable throughout. 



 7 reasons why massage is good for you and your baby:


  • Lowers stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin, so promoting relaxation, leaving you feeling calm, which in turn promotes better sleep. Less stress for you means a more relaxed and happy baby.
  • Releases endorphins, the feel-good chemicals. These are passed on to the baby
  • Helps to reduce the pressure your body is experiencing. Manipulation of the soft tissue and muscle tissue breaks down tension and helps your body to expel toxins leaving you feeling lighter and refreshed.
  • Stimulates and increase lymph flow and blood circulation, reducing swelling (oedema) and tired legs. Improved blood circulation also means more nutrients to your baby.
  • Reduces backache, spasms, crumps and carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Enhances pliability and elasticity of the skin and underlying tissues.

  • Helps communication and bonding between you and your baby, as touch is the first sense your little one develops at just 7 ½ weeks of gestation.
