Feeling Pregnant?

Whether you are 6 weeks, 4 months, or past due on your pregnancy, I know how it is to “feel” pregnant. I have 3 kids, and know all about the roller coaster of pregnancy. Pregnancy comes with back pain, sleepless nights, sickness, and changes to your body that chances are… you weren’t warned about or prepared for. My first 2 pregnancies were quite similar, however, my third was different…here’s why…

All Because of Headaches

During my 2-3 month of pregnancy with my 3rd child, I started having terrible headaches. They woke me up at night, I felt like I had them all the time. I saw doctors, took medicine, and even visited the ER. I was desperate for relief. An x-ray showed the my bones in my c-spine (neck) were straightening. So, I started coming in to get therapeutic massages for my neck and head. It was AMAZING! After a few visits, my head started to feel SO much better! My massage therapist recommended I continue to come in during my pregnancy as there were several benefits. I can’t argue with that, so I kept coming each week during the remainder of my pregnancy. That was the best decision EVER!

Results Before & After

When I got massages each week it was wonderful. It was a chance for me to step away from my other 2 young children. It was a chance to relax, to heal the parts of me that felt like they were breaking, and to do something good for me. Plus, after each massage, I felt better! But, even more amazing than the results I received during each massage, were the results I experienced during labor & postpartum.  My labor was significantly shorter and baby got here faster. Plus, I was riding a bike 4 weeks after having a baby! I healed so much faster and felt SO much better, than after my first 2 babies. I could not believe the difference.

I am a believer!

I cannot recommend it more, for every pregnant mom to get regular pregnancy massages. It is worth the time, the money, and the effort. It will pay off, and your body with thank you!
