Pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman, but sometimes the bodily changes it brings can create a variety of aches, pains and other common health problems you’d sooner do without. Pregnancy Massage can help relieve many of these symptoms.

How soon can I receive pregnancy massage?

Pregnancy Massage can be received after the first trimester and after the first scan. It can continue to be received into the second and third trimester if there are no complications.


Please note: Pregnancy Massage is a complementary therapy, not an alternative treatment to normal maternity care and I require consent from your doctor or midwife in advance of treatment.  As obtaining consent can sometimes take several weeks it’s a good idea to contact me early on, so the process of obtaining consent can be started in good time. This will avoid you having to wait before receiving your first Pregnancy Massage.  

Benefits of Pregnancy Massage include:

Receiving a Pregnancy Massage

Correct positioning during a massage is very important when you’re pregnant and most of the treatment will be given with you lying safely on your side, so no unnecessary pressure is put on your abdomen. You’ll be made comfortable with pillows and bolsters supporting your head, tummy and legs and you’ll be securely and warmly covered with towels. For the last part of the massage you’ll be moved to a semi-seated position, with your upper body and tummy fully supported, so you can receive a relaxing face and head massage.

Pressures during a Pregnancy Massage

A Pregnancy Massage will never include pressures that are painfully strong but will still be firm enough to be beneficial where needed. Pressures for some parts of the body, such as the legs, are lighter than for other types of massage and any areas where there is swelling and water retention, such as hands, are massaged lightly to help with fluid drainage.  When no swelling is present, pressure on feet and back can be firmer if desired, as this helps to release tight painful muscles. Shoulders, neck muscles and across the hips may also be sore and tense, so these areas can benefit from slightly firmer pressures to help relax any tightness.

Regular pregnancy massage

Regular Pregnancy Massage treatments can help a woman become more aware of her body. This can make it easier to relax during the first stage of labour, which in turn may result in a shorter and easier birth.

Pregnancy Massage can also be of benefit to the unborn baby, as it’s been shown that the ‘feel good’ endorphins released by the mother during a massage are passed on to the child in the womb.
