Importance of Prenatal Massages

Prenatal Massage is important for all pregnant women.  I offer discounted Prenatal Massage prices and packages for my contracted Doula clients. I recommend at least one massage each month to relieve the physical and emotional stress of pregnancy. From my experience as an expecting mother, I would receive massages at weeks 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 34, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40.

 Benefits of Prenatal Massage
Drug-free method of relieving the aches and pains of pregnancy.
Improves the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which assists the heart and reduces swelling.
Alleviates stress on the weight bearing joints of the hips, pelvis, knees, and ankles.
Relieves soreness on the muscles that are supporting the additional weight of the baby.
Eases sore muscles of the neck, back and hips.
Eases pressure and pain to the nervous system, including including the sciatic nerve.
Allows the mother to learn relaxation skills that can be used during labor.
Promotes the release of emotional & physical tension.
Prepares the body for delivery by loosening the pelvis and ridding the body of tension.  
The mother's decreased stress levels directly affect the baby- reassuring and nurturing her.
