Pregnancy is a wonderful time, but with the babys development comes many changes for mums body including pressure on joints, ligaments and organs, which can cause discomfort and pain.  This is where pregnancy massage can be of huge benefit.  It can help alleviate aches and pains and other symptoms associated with pregnancy including the stress levels , providing a calming effect for mum and baby.  Feel good' endorphins are released by mum during massage and pass over the placenta to baby, with the therapist often feeling baby move and kick as it also responds to the massage treatment.

Receiving regular massage during pregnancy can make the mother more aware of her own changing body and this can help with the ability to relax during the 1st stage of labour often resulting in shorted and easier births, less pain and a lower rate of postnatal complications.
