Prenatal Massage in Kiev Wellness International
A common advice for all mothers expecting a baby is to act in a way avoiding harming the baby. That is why during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy it is recommended to avoid applying pressure on the so-called abortion zones on the woman’s body (base of the thumb, sacrum, Achilles tendon, coccyx and heel). Pressing these zones can trigger a disruption of the normal process of pregnancy. That is why only a very light maternity massage should be performed without stimulating these zones during the first three month of pregnancy. Such a light, relaxing and calm prenatal massage in Kiev Wellness Internationl will be really beneficial for both the pregnant mother and the baby.
Specific prenatal massage therapy is used during different pregnancy stages. If during the first months it is possible for a woman to lie on her stomach, at the later stages a prenatal massage therapist can only work on her pelvis, lower back and legs. And during the seventh month, it is even undesirable for a woman to lie on her stomach. The general recommendation for this period is to sit on a chair or lie on a side.
