When is Prenatal Massage Safe?


While prenatal massage can be a beneficial addition to a pregnant woman's wellness routine, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional before beginning treatment. Prenatal massage is generally safe during the second and third trimesters; however, it is not recommended during the first trimester due to the increased risk of miscarriage.

What to Expect During a Prenatal Massage

During a prenatal massage, the therapist will use specialized techniques and positioning to ensure the safety and comfort of both mother and baby. Expecting mothers will typically lie on their side, supported by pillows, to avoid putting pressure on the abdomen. The therapist will then use gentle pressure to address areas of tension and discomfort.

Considerations for Prenatal Massage

It's crucial to choose a therapist experienced in prenatal massage to ensure they are knowledgeable about pregnancy-specific concerns and precautions. Additionally, communicate any discomfort or preferences with your therapist throughout the session to optimize your experience.
