    Frequently Asked Questions

    What to Expect From Your Pregnancy Massage Appointment

    Your first pregnancy massage appointment with us will normally involve a brief discussion about the symptoms you are experiencing and what you are hoping to achieve from the appointment. Our specialist women’s health therapists will then use the information you have provided to make an assessment and decide what they can safely help you with. If you are hoping to have a relaxing pregnancy massage, rather than one to alleviate any symptoms, this is also something that can be provided as part of our pregnancy massage service.

    Once the initial assessment and discussion has taken place, our specialist women’s health therapists will begin the pregnancy massage treatment. At this point, it would be helpful if you were wearing clothes that could either be easily removed or pulled up to access the areas of your body that you are struggling with.

    If you do not feel comfortable with revealing particular areas of your body, please don’t hesitate to communicate this to our therapists, and they will do their best to find a solution. What’s more, if you find yourself feeling uncomfortable in certain massage positions, let us know and we will change things up. We can use a tailor made pregnancy pillow to allow a forward facing massage if required.

    Can I Lay on My Stomach For a Massage While Pregnant?

    You can lay on your stomach for a pregnancy massage if that is how you feel most comfortable. However, our specialist women’s health therapists can also start the massage in sideways lying position, whichever is most comfortable for the mother.

    We also have tailor made pregnancy pillows on hand, if the stomach lying position is deemed to be the most appropriate option. The pregnancy pillow is designed to provide support to both the mother and baby.

    Is it Safe to Get a Massage When You are Pregnant?

    Yes, it is safe to get a pregnancy massage from 12 weeks into your pregnancy, but we would recommend checking with your consultant or midwife before booking an appointment. If you are in pain before 12 weeks, then we suggest booking in for a pregnancy physiotherapy assessment with our senior women’s health physiotherapy team. Every pregnancy is different, but your consultant will be aware if there are any reasons why you personally should avoid a massage.

    If you do want to have a pregnancy massage or physio in your pregnancy, we would recommend choosing a service that is provided by specialist women’ health physiotherapists and/or our specialist massage therapists.. This is because they will have the expert knowledge and training to know how to safely and effectively provide therapy to pregnant women. Whilst an everyday massage therapist might be good at releasing some tension in your shoulders, they may not be aware of the safest positions or techniques to use on pregnant women.
