Giving birth is a workout. Not to mention carrying a baby for nine months and then carrying around an infant. This massage for new moms focuses on the fascia around the uterus and deep muscles and ligaments in the abdomen, lower back and hips to help them return to their pre-baby position and flexibility.
The American Pregnancy Association says that “Postpartum bodywork is an effective and holistic approach for the many adjustments to motherhood. In addition to relaxation, stress reduction, and increased immune function you get from massage, Post natal massage also regulates hormones, reduces swelling, encourages better sleep, and improves breastfeeding. More advanced therapy helps restore your body to its pre-pregnancy condition, speeds healing and assists with C-section recovery.”
