Pregnancy Massage 

Pregnancy massage can be of enormous benefit, not only to the mother, but also to the unborn baby. Massage emotionally and physically supports a woman during a time when her body is undergoing many changes an can help prepare her body for birth. 
Pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman, but with the joys of a new baby's development comes many changes to the mother's body, putting pressure on joints, ligaments and organs, often causing discomfort and pain. 
Receiving regular massages whilst pregnant can make the mother aware of her own body. This can help with the ability to relax during the first stage of labour often resulting in shorter and easier births, less pain and a lower rate of postnatal complications. Furthermore it can lead to increased breastfeeding success due to the increased prolactin and mammary development. 
Summary of benefits of massage on pregnancy: 
• Stimulation of circulation

The law has changed in 2013 and only massage therapists who have undergone special pregnancy massage training are allowed to practice on pregnant women. 
Also: UK law is very specific on maternity care: Only Midwives and doctors or those in training under supervision are legally permitted to take sole responsibility for child bearing women except in an emergency. This legal situation means that any therapies used during pregnancy including massage must be complementary rather than alternative to maternity care.
