When women get pregnant it is beneficial for both mother and baby to receive massages. As a woman’s body changes massage can help relieve the extra stress to muscles and skin that are stretching. Regular massages including the abdomen can help reduce the amount of stretch marks she gets. Massage also promotes relaxation of the mind, this can help the mother and baby, especially close to the end of the pregnancy. If she combines this with physician approved exercise, she has a good chance at having less complications at delivery. Her circulation will be better also especially in the feet and lower legs where edema can develop and turn into possible life threatening complications.
