If you’ve ever gotten a massage before, you know how wonderful it feels. (if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?)
But when you’re expecting, you may not know you can get massage. Well, you can.
One thing that should be done prior to any prenatal massage is to check with your doctor to make sure it is ok. Everyone is different and has different needs during preganancy. Once you’ve gotten the all clear from the doc, make the appointment.
Trust me on this, you’ll be glad you did.
How massage can benefit during pregnancy:
- Promote better sleep
- Regulate Hormones
- Increase Serotonin and Dopamine to help feelings of happiness and ward off depression
- Relieve body aches and pains like sciatica or nerve pain
- Promotes well-being
- Reduce edema or swelling
- Improve labor outcomes
- Improve circulation
Basically, it does a body and baby good.
Some think you become a mother the day your baby is born, not true. You become a mother the very second you know you’re having a baby. Immediately you start taking care of the baby growing inside of you, and start to think of everything you put in your body, and its benefit to the life growing inside of you.
It is just as important to recognize you need taking care of too.
The better you feel, the better your body works.
