Pregnancy Massage: Everything You Need to Know

What is Pregnancy Massage?

Also known as prenatal massage, is a gentle and therapeutic form of massage specifically designed for pregnant women. It caters to the changing needs of a woman’s body during pregnancy and focuses on relieving the discomforts and tensions associated with the gestational process.


Why is it Important to Receive Massages During Pregnancy?

The importance of receiving massages during pregnancy lies in the numerous physical and emotional benefits it offers. During this period of transformation and growth, a woman’s body experiences a series of changes that can cause discomforts and tensions such as back pain, swelling, fatigue, and stress. Prenatal massage provides relief to these discomforts, promotes relaxation, improves blood circulation, and helps reduce anxiety and emotional stress.


When Can You Start Receiving Prenatal Massages?

While prenatal massages can be received from the beginning of your pregnancy, many expectant mothers prefer to wait until the pregnancy is past the most risky time, therefore they choose to receive massages from the second trimester onwards. This is because the risk of miscarriage is higher during the first trimester, so some women prefer to wait until the critical first weeks have passed before receiving massages. You can always consult with your doctor or midwife if its safe for you and your baby to receive a massage.


Benefits Prenatal Massages

The benefits of receiving a massage while pregnant are plentiful. Some of the highlighted benefits include:

  • Relief of pain and muscle tension.
  • Improvement of blood and lymphatic circulation.
  • Reduction of swelling and fluid retention.
  • Improvement of sleep and reduction of insomnia.
  • Relief of stress and anxiety.
  • Improvement of mood and emotional well-being.
  • Preparation of the body for childbirth.


Contraindications of Pregnancy Massage

Although pregnancy massage is generally safe and beneficial, there are some contraindications to consider.

Some of these contraindications include:

  • High-risk pregnancies or medical complications.
  • History of recurrent miscarriages.
  • Preeclampsia or gestational hypertension.
  • Deep vein thrombosis.
