prenatal & postpartum bodywork
You’re pregnant, and as your baby grows, so does your excitement. But as much as you’re reveling in the joy of motherhood, you’re no stranger to the aches, pains, and stresses of pregnancy. This is where prenatal massage can help. As a woman who is spending all of her time and energy preparing for childbirth and growing a baby, I don’t have to tell you how precious relaxation and stress relief are for you at this time. It is natural to feel overwhelmed; you have so much to think about, plan for, and hope for. You’re going through a major transformation physically, emotionally, and spiritually. With that comes an array of feelings and experiences unique to you and your individual journey. You’ll have easy days and you’ll have hard days. Some days you’ll really need a helping hand. For days like that, I have two such hands that can offer you the nurturing and rejuvenation a massage can provide.
Studies have shown prenatal massage to have a wide range of psychological, emotional, and physical benefits. To name a few, regular massage during pregnancy can reduce anxiety and symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pain, and even improve labor outcomes and the health of your baby. To top it all off, it’s a wonderful way to relax, ease stress, and take a little time for yourself. That’s some powerful medicine!
A newborn business, mamassage is taking its first steps in Nashville, Tennessee. She was first conceived years ago, was born in 2014, and continues to grow thanks to the support of the Nashville birth community and the patronage of mamas like you. I’m so proud and grateful to be providing expectant mothers with the care, comfort, and relief they so desperately need.
Birth is the most wonderful miracle of life; as a woman, you’re designed to create, grow, and birth a beautiful baby into the world. Your body knows exactly what it’s doing on this journey. But if you need a helping hand to ease the pain and stress, I’m honored to oblige.
I hope to meet you—and your baby—soon.
