Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage can be of enormous benefit not only to the Mother but also to the unborn baby. 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 mother's body putting pressure on joints, ligaments and organs often causing discomfort and pain.

Furthermore research shows that the baby can benefit greatly from massage as "feel good" endorphins released by the mother during massage are passed onto the baby.

Receiving regular massage whilst pregnant can make the mother more aware of her own body. This can help with the ability to relax during the 1st. stage of labour often resulting in shorter and easier births, less pain and a lower rate of postnatal complications. Furthermore it can lead to increased breast feeding success due to the increased prolactin and mammary development.
