A study conducted by Dr. Tiffany Field at the University of Miami School of Medicine showed that massage actually reduces stress hormones in the body. Touch is vital to the mother's physical and emotional well being as she adapts to her new body image. Regardless of individual circumstances, a pregnant woman's body is challenged, changed and stressed in many ways. Massage gives special attention to the mother-to-be, which in turn nurtures the new life that grows within her.
Massage during pregnancy is usually safe for most mothers. Your massage therapist will want to know if you are having any problems or complications with your pregnancy before you begin. If you are, then your therapist will require approval from your primary health care provider before proceeding with any bodywork.
Contraindications: The following are circumstances in which massage should not be performed:
Heavy discharge (watery or bloody); Diabetes; Contagious illness; Fever; Vomiting; Unusual pain; Pre-eclampsia; High blood pressure; Morning sickness; Abdominal pain; Diarrhea; Any malignant condition.
Congratulations!! You've made it!
And it was worth the wait, but 9 months of extreme changes both hormonally and physically have put a lot of stress on both your posture and emotions. Now the focus seems to be on the baby, very rarely do people ask the new Mom "How are YOU doing?". The few weeks and even months after giving birth are crucial times in a woman's life. Some women experience postpartum depression, fatigue, muscle soreness, fear and feeling overwhelmed. Massage can help the new mother feel more relaxed and increase circulation to help detoxify the body naturally.
