Whether it’s pre-conception, during your pregnancy, or during labour, massage has great benefits for the pregnant woman. With extra tension in the body caused by hormones and a shift in
your centre of gravity, having a massage can be a real life saver.
Massage during pregnancy can reduce peripheral swelling, help to prevent insomnia, reduce muscle cramps and back pain, and soothe the nervous system. Regular massages during pregnancy
can also shorten labour time and make the return of your optimal fitness easier.
During labour, massage is an effective pain relief tool. Ask about how your partner can massage you during labour, and find out from Jennifer the important trigger points to AVOID during pregnancy,
as it’s possible to induce labour by applying pressure to the corrent trigger point.
