Pregnancy massage can be of enormous benefit not only to the Mum to Be but also to the unborn baby. Massage during pregnancy can be a magical experience for both Mum and the therapist. It emotionally and physiologically supports a woman during a time when her body is undergoing many changes and can help prepare her body for birth.
Pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman, but with the joys of a new baby`s development, comes many changes to the Mum`s body putting pressure on joints, ligaments and organs often causing discomfort and pain.
There is ample evidence which supports the tremendous benefits of pregnancy massage. It can help alleviate aches and pains and other common health problems associated with pregnancy. Preparing for the arrival of a new baby brings much excitement, but also plenty of stress, massage can help to reduce stress levels due to its calming and relaxing effects.
Furthermore research shows that the baby can benefit greatly from massage as `feel good` endorphins released by Mum during massage are passed onto the baby.
Benefits of massage
Receiving regular massage whilst pregnant can make Mums to Be more aware of their own body. This can help with the ability to relax during the 1st stage of labour often resulting in shorter easier births.
