Pregnancy is full of exciting moments and lots of physical changes for a mama. A lot of these changes are exciting but sometimes scary. A lot of the physical changes are not comfortable ones, especially in that third trimester. But you do not have to live with the pain and discomfort. Prenatal massage is here to help.

What are the benefits to massage?
Prenatal and postnatal massage can help by relieving back strain and headaches and easing postpartum stress. There are prenatal massage guidelines that a massage therapist should abide by to ensure safe sessions. Prenatal massage has many benefits, such as hormone regulation, reduction of swelling, and improvement of nerve pain. It can also help you sleep better, and we all know how important that is.
Having a baby is exciting, but let’s be honest, it can be stressful and painful–and now you have a whole new human to take care of. In addition to your house, your job, your relationship with your partner, your friendships, and your family, are you remembering that you are important too? You need to take care of yourself.
ABQ Mom Team Recommendation
“Hands down, I recommend Desert Luna Massage by Desirae Martinez. She specializes in prenatal massages and is the absolute best. She made me feel so comfortable. She had a belly pillow that allowed me to lay on my belly and it was everything. Every expecting mama should definitely consider getting a prenatal massage by her!” -Rosa P.
