Prenatal Massage in Raleigh: Relax with a massage session before or after childbirth!
Prenatal massage in Raleigh is a great way to take a break from the uncomfortableness that being with child can bring. For a look at all the benefits of massage during the weeks prior to delivery, visit previous posts here and here.
There are also benefits to getting a massage soon after your baby is born as well. According to babycenter.com, a massage after delivery “helps to restore muscle tone in the abdomen and reposition the pelvis. Plus, it can give a new mom some time to relax and possibly a chance for some much-needed quiet time and sleep. Depending on the conditions during the delivery, some women feel “up to” a massage a week or so after delivery, while for others it may be beneficial to wait 6 weeks or more. Check with your doctor to determine the best time to receive a massage following your delivery. In addition to helping the mother, massage is also very beneficial to the baby as well. Infant Massage can promote bonding; help alleviate colic and fussiness, while contributing to the baby’s overall health. Ask us about our Infant Massage instruction available to parents.”
Raleigh massage therapy is a great alternative to medications that you can’t always take while you’re pregnant or have just given birth. Aches, pains, and discomforts often go uncared for, because most women don’t realize that a massage can help. Alleviate pain, stress, and discomfort is important to our well-being. It’s essential to address those issues and relieve them.
