What to expect

Is massage safe during pregnancy?


Yes, massage is safe during pregnancy, but the massage will need to be adapted to take into consideration your changing body and any pregnancy and pre-existing health conditions.  It will also be adapted in any way that will make you feel safe.  Some women prefer to avoid massage during the first trimester as this the time when women are most at risk of experiencing a miscarriage; however, there is no evidence that massage can be a contributing factor.


It is important that you let me know about your pregnancy as early as possible.
