Your Prenatal Massage Questions Answered

How is a prenatal massage different?

While a prenatal massage has the same goals as a regular one, it’s modified to increase comfort for the expecting mother. Instead of lying on her back or stomach, a pregnant woman will lie on her side and hold a body pillow. The massage therapist also won’t touch the stomach or pressure points to avoid causing contractions.

Are there circumstances when a prenatal massage isn’t safe?

Prenatal massages are considered safe for the majority of pregnant women. However, women with high-risk pregnancies or certain medical conditions like high blood pressure may want to talk to their doctors before getting a massage. Massages can change blood flow in the body, which may negatively impact certain health conditions.

They can also relieve headaches, reduce swelling, improve sleep, and increase circulation. Many pregnant women report feeling physically and mentally better after receiving these massages.

Is it painful?
