The Benefits of Pregnancy Massage


Relief from Physical Discomfort: Pregnancy often brings about a range of physical discomforts, including back pain, muscle tension, swelling, and joint pain. Pregnancy massage is tailored to address these specific issues, providing relief and comfort.


Stress Reduction: Expectant mothers face a myriad of emotional and psychological changes. The calming touch of a skilled therapist can help reduce stress and anxiety, promoting emotional well-being.


Improved Circulation: Pregnancy can lead to increased pressure on blood vessels, causing poor circulation. Massage can enhance blood flow, reducing the risk of complications and promoting a healthier pregnancy.


Enhanced Sleep Quality: Many pregnant women struggle with sleep disturbances. Pregnancy massage helps relax both the body and mind, often leading to improved sleep quality.


Preparation for Labour: Some massage techniques can focus on preparing the body for labour by promoting relaxation and flexibility, which can be beneficial during childbirth.


Considerations for Pregnancy Massage


Here are some of the considerations you should reflect on prior to booking your pregnancy massage:


  • Trained and Experienced Therapist: When seeking pregnancy massage, it's crucial to choose a therapist with specialised training and experience in prenatal massage. Janie Hirst, owner of Grounded Healing Bayview, brings together her many years of massage therapy and experience to provide tailored pregnancy massage sessions to ensure the safety and well-being of both mother and baby.

  • Consultation with Healthcare Provider: Before scheduling a pregnancy massage, it's advisable to consult with your healthcare provider to ensure that it is a safe option for you, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions or complications.

  • Comfort and Positioning: Pregnancy massage is typically performed with the expectant mother lying on her side or using a specialised pregnancy massage cushion that allows her to comfortably recline without putting pressure on the abdomen.

  • Communication: Effective communication with your therapist is essential. Be sure to share any specific concerns, discomforts, or areas you'd like the therapist to focus on during the massage.
