Mom's bodies go through some amazing changes when pregnant, and some can be very uncomfortable. Prenatal and postnatal massage can help alleviate some of the ailments.
After going over your goals for the session, you will be in a private room where you can undress to your level of comfort. Many clients just wear underwear, but you will be completely covered under the sheets except for the body parts being worked on. If you cannot lay on your back or stomach, side lying can feel more comfortable. The therapist gives you a pillow for under your head and between the knees which also allows you to lean into it like a belly body pillow.
- Reduces swelling, aches, anxiety, ease back and sciatic pain
- Helps get better sleep
- Brings mom relaxation and comfort.
Wear loose clothing and communicate with your therapist, telling them about your desired goals, comfortability and pressure.

Frequently Asked Questions
When can I get a prenatal massage?
The time to get a prenatal massage is preferably after your 1st trimester as this is the most fragile trimester of pregnancy.
Do they rub my belly in a Prenatal Massage?
While it is not very common in America for them to rub your belly, you can certainly ask your therapist as many therapists are trained in prenatal stomach and abdominal massage.
Who should not get a pregnancy massage?
Women in their 1st trimester, pregnant women with medical conditions such as a history of pre-eclampsia, and those with high blood pressure not managed should not get a pregnancy massage.
Does the baby know I'm getting a massage?
Certain spots reflect other areas, such as ankle points. When massaged, they "reflect" the area of the womb and ovaries. Often times the baby will kick or "dance" when mom receives a foot massage.
