When you’re carrying a baby or multiple babies, you have a lot of extra weight to cater for. Your growing baby, additional blood, fluids, the placenta … it all adds up. Due to your new frontal load, it’s very common to experience fatigue more often. You may also notice a subconscious change to your gait (hello ‘pregnancy waddle’), as your body makes the necessary hip adjustments to accommodate your changing body. And on top of this you may not be sleeping well. Physically speaking, it’s an intense time.

For women in pain or just feeling wrecked, if it’s available to you, book yourself a pregnancy massage. Whether you are 15 weeks, 20 weeks, 30 or 39! The idea of the massage is not just for a few hours of relaxation. We wish! The massage can offer welcomed relief and reduced aches, pains and niggles.
