Prenatal massage is one of the more popular types of massage for obvious reasons. When you are pregnant, you are uncomfortable. It is a fact. You are growing another human inside of you. For this to happen all sorts of things are shifting in your body. Add to that the additional weight pulling your body forward and you have a recipe for back pain. If you have made it through pregnancy without back pain, consider yourself extremely lucky.
This is why prenatal massage is so popular. The relief that a massage can give to an expecting mother is exceptional. Not to mention that dozens of studies have been done to show health benefits to your baby and to you through minimizing stress during your pregnancy.
