During the first trimester a general wellness massage is indicated which helps to level out the mother's physiologic responses.
Side lying and chair massage is indicated after the first trimester which can address lower back pain and ache from the postural shift caused by the growing baby.
Fluid accumulation/retention occurs when more fluid builds up in the tissues than the circulatory and lymph systems combined can accommodate causing swelling in the legs and feet.
At this stage an Oedema Massage is given which will support in decreasing the fluid build up.
