Pregnancy & Infant Massage
During a Pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many changes, many of which are uncomfortable and stressful! No matter where you are in the childbearing phase, massage may have many benefits for you and your baby.
Massage for premature babies:
Perhaps the most important benefit of still touch and massage for your premature baby is that it helps you both to bond. This is especially helpful if your baby has spent the first days of his/her life in an incubator. You can give your baby love, comfort and reassurance through your voice and gentle touch.
Massage can also:
have a calming and soothing effect
help to improve weight gain
enhance growth and development
encourage greater responsiveness
improve digestion and metabolism
reduce pain by stimulating the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers
