Pregnancy massage or prenatal massage is specifically tailored to relieve the stress and strain, aches and pains that many expectant mothers will experience during their pregnancy. It can help to reduce the fluid retention and soothe back ache. Pregnancy massage can also just be a bit of time out for a mum to be to relax and destress
Along with general aches and back pain some expectant mothers also experience Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) or Symphosis Pubis Disorder (SPD) which, in simple terms, is where the ligaments in the pelvis have become more flexible due to the change in hormones in the body. This can the cause the pelvis to become over mobile which can cause pain, which in turn can then cause the muscles in the pelvic area to over tighten to compensate. This pain can range from a mild ache, to sciatica (piriformis syndrome), to quite severe pain and associated trouble walking.
Pregnancy massage can be of great help in alleviating symptoms and pain and keeping you moving, but as with all pregnancy conditions it is advisable that you firstly get in touch with your midwife who can have the condition assessed and see what treatment may be needed
