Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage can be of massive benefit not only to the expectant mother but also to the unborn baby. It emotionally and physiologically supports women during a time when their bodies are undergoing many changes and can also help prepare their bodies for birth. This massage can help to alleviate aches and pains and other health problems associated with pregnancy.

Research shows that the baby can benefit greatly from this massage as ‘feel good endorphins’ are released by the mother during the massage, this is then passed on to the baby. Receiving regular massages 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 which often results in shorter and easier births with less pain. It can also lead to more success in breast feeding due to the increased prolactin and mammary development.
