Prenatal massage is a nurturing treatment that is based on specialized knowledge that is centered in protecting Mothers and Babies while providing a relaxing and restorative treatment. The therapist must be trained in special positioning and bolstering for comfort and safety. The treatment and positioning of the mother is different in each trimester. There are even specific protocols for stretching muscles during pregnancy. The therapist must be comfortable with all these parameters so that they can focus on providing comfort and relief to the expectant mother. The right therapist can make a tremendous difference during pregnancy.
