Massage for Pregnancy

Pregnancy Massage is massage therapy for pregnancy, labor support and after birth. It focuses on the special needs of the mother as her body changes throughout pregnancy, labor and after the baby is born. Women who choose massage during pregnancy may also choose the option of having a massage therapist present during labor and birth, assisting not only comfort, but also as a stable and supportive presence. After the baby is born, many mothers appreciate the relaxation and nurturing qualities of massage.
