Pregnancy massage is a natural remedy for discomfort and stress - for both of you. A pregnancy massage is a wonderful and natural remedy for discomfort and stress - for both you and your partner. While a pregnancy massage is generally aimed at the expectant mother, a little tender loving care for the expectant father now and then by way of a pregnancy massage may be a bonding experience for both of you.
Walks in the woods, dancing with Daddy, making up silly songs, baking cookies with Mommy, bedtime stories with goodnight kisses...these are all things we love to do as a family. Please take a look at our profile.Text/call us at 1-240-367-5341 at anytime!
Did I say 'both'? I meant all three of you - even an unborn baby will benefit from the soothing effects of a pregnancy massage. Studies have shown that pre-term babies who received little or no touch during the first days of their lives had a lower survival rate than those who were given regular tactile attention.
A pregnancy massage is an expression of love and support. It should be soothing, gentle, warm, loving, sensual and relaxing. A massage should never be hurried, demanded or performed as an obligation.
So, out with the soothing aromatherapy pregnancy massage oils and treat your loved one. (Don't forget to use only oils that are suitable for pregnant women.)
Start your pregnancy massage by stroking the baby through its mom's tummy, gently and soothingly. Both mother and child will love this. Then move on to an area or areas where your partner has expressed a desire to be touched. If she is feeling tense, she may want a firm back or shoulder massage. If tired, a foot massage will ease swollen feet and ankles. If she is still awake after this, she may just treat you to a pregnancy massage next. If she's fallen asleep, congratulations! You did a fine job and can be sure she will return the favor soon.
A pregnancy massage can be done anywhere, anytime. The bedroom is a good place, especially with the lights down low, perhaps a few candles burning. You can give your partner a pregnancy massage in the bath or shower together. Bath together and, sitting behind her, treat her to an Indian head massage. In the garden, watching TV, just a few minutes of massage will always be welcomed, as will a kiss.
