Maternity massage is a wonderful complementary choice for women care during pregnancy. Abdomen grow, posture, and weight changes during pregnancy can cause discomfort for a mom-to-be. The growth of the baby and, consequently, the increase in weight and the change in the center of gravity, generate tension in the joints and muscles in the lower back and pelvis. Stress in muscles and joints can result in lower back, pelvis, neck, shoulders or sciatic nerve pain.
We don’t give Maternity Massages during the first trimester. The reason is the potential for miscarriage.
Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before trying massage. Be sure you get clearance from your doctor before you try a massage, especially if:
- You’re experiencing nausea, vomiting or morning sickness
- Preeclampsia risk
- Gestational diabetes
- You’re at high risk of miscarriage
- You have a high-risk pregnancy such as placental abruption or preterm labor
We require consent from your doctor and a liability waiver from you before performing pregnancy massage.
