Prenatal & Postpartum
Wellness Massage

Nurturing Wellness for Mother and Baby

Prenatal and Postpartum massage, also known as Pregnancy massage, is specifically designed to target areas of discomfort for mama and baby during pregnancy or in the 6 weeks after delivery.  Prenatal massage is different from other massage modalities due to the unique needs of comfort for mama and baby. But it goes so much farther than just comfort. There are unique needs physically to work on, and within, the many changes going on in a pregnant body. Virtually every system of her body has changes happening that massage can address. During the second and third trimester of pregnancy, massage is performed in side laying position to ensure safety and comfort. During the first trimester of pregnancy, it will be up to the expecting mother whether or not she is in side laying position depending on her comfortability. A mother can begin postpartum massage as soon as she feels comfortable. Special alterations for breastfeeding mothers can be made by providing a breast pillow while facedown. 

According to The American Pregnancy Association, research shows prenatal massage therapy can help

  • reduce anxiety

  • decrease symptoms of depression

  • relieve muscle aches and joint pains

  • improve labor outcomes and newborn health.

In her book, Touch, Tiffany Fields, says that in at least three studies, massage therapy for pregnant women decreased stress hormones and lowered the prematurity rate.

The American Pregnancy Association says that studies have shown that postpartum massage helps

  • decreases stress

  • increase relaxation

  •  reliefs pain

  • helps with hormone regulation

  • decreases swelling

  • improves sleep

  • increases breastfeeding
