Is it safe to get a massage while pregnant?

Pregnancy is a magical and marvelous time. Your body is doing unbelievable things, like increasing forgetfulness from the cocktail of hormones flowing through you, elevating your blood volume up to 50% and, of course growing a tiny person in just nine months! 

Pregnancy can be challenging for the human body. There will be the added emotional stresses and difficulty in coping with things that once weren’t so hard (thanks, hormones – pass the tissues, please).  However, with all of the extra pressures and tensions that come with the delight of this time, treating yourself to a lovely pregnancy massage can be a fantastic way to remove stress and experience some much-needed relaxation. Contrary to common myths, a pregnancy massage is completely safe after the first trimester and can enhance your well-being and your baby’s too! 

The great news? There is now even more research to support you in taking a calming moment for yourself and booking a blissful pregnancy massage
