Pregnancy and Baby Massage

Pregnancy Massage

Looking after yourself is very important during pregnancy, and this is a gentle soothing massage designed to make you feel relaxed and cared for.

Pregnancy is an exciting time but can also be a little worrying.The massage sessions usually last for about an hour,which gives you time to talk about your worries and your plans.

Stretches and exercise can be shown to encourage your body to be strong and supple and ready for birth. Also, positions for labour can be talked about and tried out.

Partners, friends or mothers can be shown simple massage moves to help you stay comfortable at home in the last few weeks of pregnancy. Also this can be a great help during birth.

This support may help to give you a more relaxed experience of childbirth.
