Massage during pregnancy, also known as prenatal massage, is a therapeutic bodywork tailored specifically for pregnant women to address various physical and emotional challenges that can arise during pregnancy. It offers relief from a range of discomforts and helps enhance overall well-being. However, it’s important to note that any form of medical treatment, including massage, during pregnancy should be discussed and approved by a healthcare provider.

Here are some common medical conditions and reasons why pregnant women seek massage during pregnancy at different stages:

  1. First Trimester (Weeks 1-12):

    • Morning Sickness: Massage can help alleviate nausea and discomfort associated with morning sickness.
    • Fatigue and Stress: Gentle massage can reduce stress levels and ease fatigue often experienced in the early stages of pregnancy.
  2. Second Trimester (Weeks 13-27):

    • Back Pain: The growing uterus can cause strain on the lower back, and massage can help relieve this discomfort.
    • Muscle Tension: As the body changes, muscle tension and soreness may occur, and massage can help ease these issues.
    • Swelling and Edema: Massage techniques can aid in reducing swelling in the legs, feet, and hands.
  3. Third Trimester (Weeks 28-40+):

    • Lower Back Pain: Increased strain on the back and pelvis in late pregnancy can lead to lower back pain, which can be eased with massage.
    • Sciatic Nerve Pain: Massage can help alleviate the pressure on the sciatic nerve and provide relief from associated pain and discomfort.
    • Insomnia and Sleep Issues: Massage can promote relaxation and improve sleep quality for pregnant women struggling with insomnia.
    • Joint Pain: As the body prepares for childbirth, joints may become more mobile and prone to discomfort, which massage can help alleviate.

General benefits of prenatal massage across all trimesters:

  • Improved Circulation: Massage can enhance blood and lymphatic circulation, promoting better oxygen and nutrient flow to both the mother and the fetus.
  • Stress and Anxiety Reduction: Massage can induce relaxation, reduce stress hormones, and improve mood, benefiting both the mother and the developing baby.
  • Enhanced Posture and Alignment: Massage helps maintain good posture and alignment, reducing strain on the body and promoting a more comfortable pregnancy experience.
  • Preparation for Labor: Some forms of prenatal massage incorporate techniques to help relax and prepare the muscles and joints for labor.

We can safely target your massage to key areas of aches and pain that your have been experiencing -feet, back, neck/shoulders.

Lower back pain often begins to occur in the first trimester.  As hormones are released, they begin the slow relaxation of the ligaments that hold the pelvis taut.  As a result, you’ll often experience pain in the lower back.  Massage here greatly assist, as it is very nurturing and warming, and also soothes this area.

Massaging the legs and feet soothes the muscles that support the extra weight.

We can also help with pre-labour massage to help your tired and sore body to prepare for the labour!

We Avoid – 

We just avoid massage in the first trimester –

Massage is usually contraindicated in the first trimester due to the instability of the new baby.  Certain pressure points must be avoided, as repetitive stimulation of them is said to have an adverse effect.
