Prenatal Massage 101
Why Moms and Fathers To Be Should Attend
During pregnancy, the body undergoes some pretty remarkable changes as you undergo the evolution necessary to provide a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for you and your developing baby. However, this process can also come along with some emotional and physical discomforts.
For instance, did you know that during pregnancy the body produces 50% more blood and other bodily fluids in order to meet the needs of your growing baby?
Incredible, right? The extra production of fluid is necessary to help soften the body to allow for the expansion needed as the baby develops. It also helps prepare the pelvis and surrounding tissues for delivery. But, that added fluid can cause swelling, or edema of the ankles, hands, legs, feet, and face, as well as sluggish circulation, disruptive sleep, and even headaches.
That’s where prenatal massage comes in!
Treating your ever-changing body naturally with prenatal massage is a great way to reduce or relieve some of the symptoms accompanying pregnancy. It also benefits yours baby!
Please join Marley & Moo Maternity and Massage Therapist, Susan Young, for Massage for Couples on Saturday, October 13th at 10:00 am CDT to find out how prenatal massage can help support you in your pregnancy. This workshop is FREE and open to all expecting and new mothers and fathers.
What to “Expect”
During this event, we will be discussing the benefits of incorporating massage into your prenatal and postpartum practice to help:
- Reduce back pain
- Reduce swelling
- Improve circulation
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Improve sleep
We will also be discussing how prenatal massage can help to reduce or relieve symptoms and talk about what to expect when receiving prenatal specific massage. Your partner will also learn ways during the interactive to support your pregnancy and postpartum.
Prenatal massage works to achieve many of the same goals as traditional massage, but it is specifically tailored to the changing needs of you and your baby. We will discuss those differences, and I will also provide information on how to best find a practitioner qualified to treat your specific needs.
