PREGNANCY MASSAGE ROUTINE
From and after the 1st Trimester
The Mum2B will be lying on her side and she will supported with several cushions
between her knees under bump and under her head on the massage
couch to make sure she is completly comfotable.
Two towels will be used to discreetly cover the mother so that the
breasts and pelvis are not exposed at any point.
Claire will place one hand on the mother’s lower back and one hand
on the mothers bump to tune in to mother and baby asking the
mother to take some slow breaths.
There will then be a couple of stretches with the breath, creating space
around the ribcage area.
The massage is broken down into sections starting with the Back
which is broken down into 3 sections, The Bump, Arms,
Wrists and Hands and the Legs and ankles will be massaged to help ease tension from all over the body and to help reduce and swelling in the ankles.
The client is then sat up and turned so the other side can be
massaged and the sequence is repeated again,
Then the client will turn for the final time onto her back where she
will be propped up slightly. This is NOT usually performed in the last trimester.
The Mother will receive a facial massage, (this can disturb make-up)
Claire recommends that you try and relax for the rest of the day as this massage is very relaxing and will make you feel quite tired, its best to rest and catch up on your sleep after,..
