Healing your body and mind
sometimes feel as though your body is out of control as your baby develops; placing all manner of stresses and strains on your physical and even your mental well-being.
Regular massage during pregnancy is a proven method to help with the emotional and physical preparation for giving birth, as well as addressing ailments such as achy hips, backache, muscle tension and fluid retention. It eases bodily pains, tiredness, constipation and fluid retention helping you to relax and better enjoy this special time.
Mothers who receive massage during pregnancy are more likely to give their babies massages, thereby nurturing their bond and promoting the child’s development. Babies born from less-stressed mothers are calmer, less fussy and perform better on infant development.
Following your own massage during pregnancy, you can introduce this wonderful therapy to your baby with instructions from a baby massage class. See my section on Baby Massage Classes.
