Pregnancy massage is available from 12 weeks (2nd trimester) till birth. Our preference is to wait until the first trimester is complete as this is the most common time for miscarriage to occur. Whilst it has not been proven that massage can influence miscarriage and it is highly unlikely it would do so it is often best to limit anything that could possibly affect pregnancy.
Pregnancy massage is performed with the client lying on their side or we have specialised pregnancy pillows which allows for the expectant mum to play on their fronts if possible.
