  • Things You Need to Know About Pregnancy Massage

    As an expectant mum, you must have heard things about pregnancy massage. it can give you and the baby in your womb a lot of benefits that you can reap during or after your pregnancy.

    Pregnancy massage provides relaxation by relieving stress on joints. It eases neck and back pain, helps you to keep good posture and relaxes and provides flexibility to birthing muscles.Pregnancy massage aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keeps blood flowing to both the mother and the baby. It stimulates different glands in the body, which help to stabilize hormone levels, and relieves nervous tension throughout the body. And the nurturing touch during pregnancy massage promotes relaxation and provides emotional support. Massage is also good after giving birth as it helps restore a mother's body to its pre-pregnancy condition. It also helps to realign the body weight, and tones the over-stretched skin over the belly.

    But before you call the ever- reliable masseuse or massage therapist, here are ten things you need to know about pregnancy massage:

    1. Although massage is a generally harmless treatment, there are some massage therapists who are cautious about giving massages during the critical first trimester when you are experiencing nausea, vomiting, or morning sickness.

    2. You also need to avoid massage in an area where you have a blood clot or a bone fracture.

    3. You'd also want to avoid massage on any area where you have a skin injury or condition that could be aggravated by rubbing, including burns, open wounds, skin infections, or eczema. Be also wary that some people may have allergic reactions to oils used by massage therapists.

    4. If you're at high risk of miscarriage or you have a high-risk pregnancy such as placental abruption (where the placenta slightly detaches from the wall of the uterus) or preterm labor, please refrain from asking for a pregnancy massage.

    5. If you are experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches, it is best to speak with a health care provider prior to receiving a massage.

      I have been trying for a baby for the last 5 years now and we have had no luck.I dont't have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when i am ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 2 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3 months of trying, we had a fertility test about a year ago and my womb were fine. I'm thinking it could be a problem with me but I've never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i am slightly overweight but that shouldn't affect our chances too much,one faithful day my friend told me to contact a spell caster that help her aunt ,then i contact the man on this email: fiokporspiritualtemple(AT)gmail.com, after few weeks the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you DR Fiokpor for helping us get a baby. he specialize in so many things, contact him and tell him any problems you having he will find you a solution
