During the childbearing year, which is inherently a physically challenging time, there are some things that can make the experience more comfortable...one of them is massage. However, there are many massage therapists who practice unsafe or less optimal practices for pregnant women. Searching for your therapist via this mode will ensure the therapist you work with has been trained in safe positioning for pregnant women, massage contraindications for pregnancy and how to alleviate some specific pregnancy and postpartum discomforts.
