WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE DURING PREGNANCY?

Don’t wait till your last trimester to experience the benefits of massage during your pregnancy.

In my previous blog I talked about making you feel comfortable for a pregnancy massage, here I explain what the benefits are of a pregnancy massage for you and your baby!

There are so many useful sites, Instagram accounts, Facebook pages, that didn’t exist a few years back, where women are sharing their stories and learning why the changes are occurring and what they can to do to support themselves. Understanding something gives you power and control!
