I am surprised when my clients tell me they waited until the end of the 12th week before coming for a massage! With a trained Pregnancy Massage Therapist, there should be no reason to wait until that time. If you think about it, women who have regular massages might be having a massage within the first few weeks without knowing it! So, if you need a massage and your nausea/vomiting is manageable, then come and see me for a rewarding, time out, relaxation and therapeutic massage.

One of the things not covered in massage school was the vital importance of mum's recovery in the first 6 weeks post childbirth. Actually, it is simply a reflection of our Western Culture and the focus on the baby and the baby's health and development over the top of mothers health. However, unless mum is healthy or regaining her health, how can the baby gain health from its source of life, it's mother?

But don't stop there! Six weeks is just the beginning. Everyone varies so if you need to continue weekly for 12 weeks or 20 weeks, then that is what you should do. Once you feel like you have recovered then you can return to a fortnightly or monthly massage, as you prefer. Don't forget, childbirth is not the end it is the beginning. You are going to have many episodes of sleep challenges and stress for at least the next 40 years ... or forever!! Ask your mother and/or grandmother!!
