Pregnancy massage

pregancy

Transformational time out.

Pregnancy massage can be of enormous benefit not only to the mother but also to the unborn baby. Massage during pregnancy can be a magical experience and research shows that unborn babies can benefit greatly from the ‘feel good’ endorphins that released from the mother.

Pregnancy can be a wonderful time for a woman, but with the joys of the new baby’s development, comes many changes to the mother’s body putting pressure on joints, ligaments and organs. There is ample evidence which supports the tremendous benefits of pregnancy massage as shown below. This lovely massage often referred to as the cuddly massage, can also be of great help post birth, aiding toning of the uterus and allowing precious healing and quiet time. ( I am open to you bringing new born babies to the session if you need to, just ask me about it)
