Prenatal Care & Pregnancy Massage
Topic of the Month - by Jessica Konink
Therapeutic Massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension. Modern investigation and research has shown that Massage Therapy is a primary part of women’s prenatal care. Studies indicate that Pregnancy Massage can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, increase lymphatic flow and blood circulation as well as, improve labor outcomes and optimize newborn health.
Prenatal massage is proven to aid in hormone regulation, reduce swelling and edema, improve mobility and promote healthy nerve and muscle function. Prenatal Massage is a safe and effective treatment for pregnant women and can be utilized during the first, second, or third trimesters. Some facilities will refuse to offer massage to a woman who is still in her first trimester because of the increased risk for miscarriage associated with the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Women who have recently experienced bleeding, pre-term contractions, or have any of the following conditions should speak with a medical doctor or primary healthcare provider prior to receiving a massage if they are considered high risk, have symptoms of pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH), preeclampsia, previous pre-term labor, are experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches.
The benefits of massage can improve overall health for many pregnant women. Along with the guidance and advice of a prenatal care provider, Massage Therapy can be incorporated into routine prenatal care as a complimentary modality that balances emotional and physical health, improves pregnancy outcomes and general maternal health. Consult with your Midwife or Obstetrician before beginning any new therapeutic practice.
