Pre and Post Natal Massage Therapy


Having a baby is a fantastic experience, yet it can cause an enormous strain on the body. Both during pregnancy and after, women experience immense bodily changes, many of which can lead to lingering aches and pains. When you pair this with the need to lean over a crib and lift a growing baby, it’s a sure way to ongoing problems. In fact, many women would equate old muscle aches and injuries to these pregnancy and pre-birth days. Sadly, there’s a lack of information about what women can do to heal their bodies at this time.


That’s where pre and postnatal massage therapy comes in. This is a fantastic and natural way for mums to recover from these bodily experiences. It can also help to provide much-needed self-care time at one of the most emotionally trying periods of a woman’s life. But, what exactly is pregnancy-related massage therapy? 

Post Natal Massage


As a new Mum you are not only faced with nurturing your new baby but coping with the physical and emotional changes after pregnancy.

Are you concerned about your belly?

Are you experiencing pelvic floor issues?

Are you generally feeling out of sorts?

Are you worried about your C-section scar?

We are expertly trained in postnatal massage and we would like to help you alleviate the symptoms and help you recover quickly after the birth of your baby

We can help, educate and advise you on the following symptoms and conditions:

  • Diastasis Recti (tummy gap)  

  • Pelvic Floor issues  

  • C-Section Scars 

  • Abdominal weakness  

  • Back pain 

  • Pelvic Girdle pain  

  • Prolapse 

  • Tiredness and fatigue 

  • Bowel issues such as constipation

Understanding pre and post natal massage


To understand what pre and postnatal massage entail, it’s first essential to consider the difference between them. Before birth, prenatal massage is a therapeutic bodywork which focuses on problem areas that arise during pregnancy itself. It involves a full-body massage and the use of a booster cushion for bump support. 


This therapy can lead to the natural healing of common pregnancy problems such as back pain and headaches. Bear in mind that this is not recommended for high-risk pregnancies or before thirteen weeks. By comparison, postnatal massage focuses on healing and recovery, and also provides much-needed relaxation and de-stressing benefits for new mothers. 


The benefits of pre and postnatal massage 


Both pre and postnatal massage can have a significant impact on the aches and pains so many mothers suffer as standard. Prenatal massage can also help to build strength for birth, while postnatal can provide a boost for exhausted new mothers. Other benefits of these massage therapies include - 


  • Relaxation

  • Reduced tension and anxiety

  • Hormone regulation

  • Natural pain reduction

  • Improved sleep

  • Better breastfeeding

  • Improved moods


And, this isn't even an exhaustive list. By developing a long-term massage therapy plan, mothers and mothers-to-be can ensure their ongoing wellbeing. Emotional benefits are also worth attention, as this ongoing self-care habit can be real support for mothers who otherwise struggle to find time for themselves.
