Through the 40 weeks the baby is growing in the womb a woman’s body has a great deal to do and undergoes many changes, both physical and hormonal. These changes can cause a variety of problems, ranging from morning sickness to swollen ankles, feet and fingers. It is also a time when an expectant mother can experience strong emotional feelings. Throughout pregnancy babies are very aware of the environmental outside the womb and the emotional state of the mother. As well as helping to relieve many of the common minor ailments associated with pregnancy, massage can help the mother, and therefore the baby, remain in a balanced and healthy state physically, mentally and spiritually.
