What Is The Right Time? | Pregnancy Massage Melbourne

Many pregnancy massage therapists, as well as Gynecologists, suggest waiting until the end of the first trimester before receiving a pregnancy massage. This is because it is in the first twelve weeks of the pregnancy that the fetus goes through many important developmental stages. You need to observe as much care as possible in taking care of the developing fetus during these first twelve weeks of your pregnancy. In saying that there is no strong evidence to suggest that pregnancy massage is dangerous during this time so we leave it up to the individual to decide when they would like to receive treatment.

How Often Should I Come? | Pregnancy Massage Melboure
