IF YOU CAN ONLY SPARE A COUPLE OF HOURS…

GET A MASSAGE
Pregnancy massage can be hugely beneficial for mother and unborn baby. The changes the body goes through as the pregnancy develops can cause pressure on joints ligaments and organs which may cause pain or discomfort. There is ample evidence to support the benefit of regular pregnancy massage. Studies show it can help to decrease depression, anxiety, leg and back pain and massage also increases the production of feel good endorphins, these are released by the mother during massage and are passed onto baby. Studies also show that women who have received regular prenatal massage have greater a chance of reduced pain perception during labour and delivery, they tend to have shorter labours and fewer complications.
