Massage For Partners Through Pregnancy

Intuitive Touch
For Physical & Emotional Preparation and Support

Though primarily a time for protecting, nurturing and providing nourishment for the growing baby within, PREGNANCY can also be a time to reflect and prepare both body and mind for birth and motherhood. Reflecting the subtle changes within, the pregnant woman also experiences necessary physical and emotional adjustments.
………some more comfortable than others. It is here that the simple act of touch can bring comfort, support and a wonderful sense of nurturing.

The benefits of massage to the pregnant woman have been recognised by traditional societies the world over. And, a comforting, supportive massage especially given by the partner can be rewarding to both partners and the growing child within. It is also fun to do!

I work with pregnant couples and teach safe and very simple techniques for massage through the childbearing year and during labour.

Many partners are perplexed at the thought of touch outside of a sensual context. Some are concerned and some have fear of causing harm to the baby and the woman. However, once tentative hands have been encouraged to relax in the knowledge that this is the most perfectly natural form of communication between two people, it is wonderful to witness a partner's realisation that they can play a vital and dynamic role in helping and supporting the woman through the journey of the 'nine moons'.

There are no hidden secrets or complicated techniques requiring physical origami of the hands. Rather, the keys to massage through pregnancy and labour by the partner are Simplicity, Trust, Intuition and Communication. Indeed, it is with regular practice throughout the pregnancy that the partner can develop a wonderful sense of intuitive communication with the pregnant woman that is invaluable when it comes to giving supportive and comforting massage in labour.

Gone are the days in the 5th month of term when it would feel like he was dislocating his partner's shoulder, or, with one hand on her neck and one eye on the TV, there would be a sudden increase in the intensity of stroke as Manchester United launched another attack at goal. Through encouragement, communication and feedback, the partner can develop a touch that is safe and secure and that can certainly help to relieve many of the most common 'dis-harmonies' that occur through the pregnancy.

TIME and INTENTION… Two important aspects of providing supportive and nurturing massage are time and intention. There is a palpably-felt difference between receiving touch from someone who is focused, in the moment, and sensitive to his partner's needs and someone who is stressed and tired or would rather be elsewhere.

Allocate enough space and time to be relaxed together and leave distractions outside the door. It can all begin for you by taking a few sessions with me.

Each session lasts 90-minutes and costs just  € 50 Euros.
