Pregnancy massage is like a relaxation massage, but the only difference is that the mom has to lie on her side or in a semi seated position. During the massage, the mom lies on her side on the table and has pillows at her head, belly and legs to keep her supported and comfortable. With semi seated the mom is supported with pillows behind her back so that she’s able to sit comfortably on the table and relax. A mom’s body is constantly changing throughout the different stages of pregnancy. Certain areas are going to become sore such as your lower back and shoulders from carrying a baby. Also your center of gravity changes which then adds stress to the body. This massage is to help the mom with any aches or pains that she has, improve mood, lower stress levels and help her relax.
