Pregnancy is a transitional time filled with a myriad of emotions. For the first time Mum everything is new, fraught with fear of miscarriage, development issues and not knowing what is ‘normal’. For the second/third/fourth time Mums it’s about learning how to care for your older children while growing the next one! For some it’s a happy time, for some unexpected and filled with stress and fear and for others a time of sickness and lethargy. Prenatal massage works to reduce your anxiety, gives you a safe space to rest and talk as needed.
Trained professionals are also able to make recommendations on who to see if you need further help, building that network of support for you at this time.
