You may think of massage as a spa luxury to indulge in on occasion. But one of the most beneficial times for massage may be pregnancy. Check out this article in our Pregnancy Health Center where you can read up on all the benefits such as:
Decreased back and leg pain
Decreased levels of the stress hormone norepinephrine
So, tell us....have you ever had a pregnancy massage? I bet you want one, though...don't you?
