Baby on Board is a gentle, full-body massage that soothes the areas under particular stress during and immediately following pregnancy.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences many changes that affect her both physiologically and emotionally. Changes in hormonal levels, from conception through delivery, cause increased swelling, fatigue, and sometimes anxiety. As the baby grows, a shift in the mother’s center of gravity results in tension to her musculo-skeletal system. Maternity Massage helps to alleviate and minimize many of these common discomforts.
Studies have also shown that by reducing stress hormone levels in the mother, Maternity Massage creates an environment in utero that is healthier for the developing baby.
Special positioning and pillow supports are used to ensure that massage is safe throughout the pregnancy.
