Pregnancy & Massage

It was by accident that I began doing pre- and post-natal massage.  I have seen one of my regular clients after one pregnancy and into another.  It's gratifying to work with these women as they create a new life.  But, oh, the lower back pain they suffer!  And the upper back after birth, carrying the newborn.  My body mechanics need to adjust, working with my client in a side-lying position, bolstered to make sure she's comfortable.  They say the baby can feel the clockwise gentle effleurage on the mother's belly.  How wonderful!  Looking forward to my next session!
