Why book a pregnancy and labour massage workshop?
Massage in pregnancy is a great way to connect with each other as you prepare for the arrival of your baby, and has the added benefit of easing many classic pregnancy symptoms including:
- Hip tension
- Aching legs
- Poor sleep
- Stress and anxiety
Used in labour massage can be an effective pain relief tool, helping you improve your sense of control. It helps promote the release of oxytocin, which in turn helps you labour more effectively. This could help you have a shorter first stage of labour, and reduce the likelihood of needing analgesia, such as epidurals!
Note: this workshop is currently only available in Bristol.
