So you're expecting to birth a new family member sooner than you're probably ready. And maybe you already know the benefits of a soothing massage from your pre-pregnancy days. But now you’re being inundated with list after list of things that you can and can’t do during your pregnancy; things that are good for your baby’s development, and things to avoid to keep your baby healthy.
Suddenly, every part of your routine, and everything you do is in question: Is this healthy for my baby?
Pregnancy can be a tiring job-- your body is legitimately working overtime. And you totally deserve some pampering to relieve those aches and pains and to just unwind. But is massage the best way to do that? Can you get a massage while pregnant? Are you putting your baby at risk, or are you benefiting your baby by taking care of yourself?
Medical interventions in birth can be thought of like a plunger.... No one buys a plungers because they're hoping their toilet gets clogged or overflows, or for it to be used with every flush. We have them just in case a situation arises that we need them....
If you needed that c-section or induction or other intervention (the plunger) because an emergency arose, then I'm glad it was available for you. If you don't want it and don't need it, then I support your choice to have it set aside (natural hospital birth), even out of immediate reach or sight (home birth).
It's a oversimplified but it gets the idea across very well.
Due to some severe pains this pregnancy, I'm sad to say I will be temporarily suspending all massage services, packages and gift certificate purchases. Some consulting appointments will still be available, as well as online services.
If you have a valid gift certificate or current package (doula clients included), I may be able to schedule sessions on a case by case basis. Otherwise, I look forward to providing massage again after some postpartum recovery.
Thank you for being great clients! ❤
