Having a baby is an exciting part of life! As the baby grows and the woman’s body changes she can start to experience different areas of pain or discomfort. A great way to help relieve that pain is by receiving a pregnancy massage. This type of massage benefits both the mother and child making for a healthier overall pregnancy. Prenatal massage has shown to reduce the likelihood of premature birth. A side-lying position and other techniques allow the mother to receive massages throughout her term. The mother’s body benefits because prenatal massage can reduce stress. We also use a special pregnancy pillow which can allow women to lie on their stomachs during a massage. This additional comfort is something women appreciate. Some even comment on how they have missed being able to lay on their stomach.
At Dubuque Massage Therapy we will do a prenatal massage at any point during your pregnancy unless there are reasons why we should wait, such as being a high-risk pregnancy. Pregnancies are potentially high risk if you are having multiple babies, have had miscarriages, are over a certain age, etc.
