As a Physical Therapist, Prenatal Massage Instructor and a Certified Educator of Infant Massage, I’d like to show you how you can massage your pregnant belly. I’m 22 weeks pregnant with twins, so it’s a perfect time. After reviewing a few basic tips and the benefits, I’ll demonstrate a few belly massage techniques.
Put on some relaxing music and follow along with this video for a therapeutic bonding time with your baby!
Tips: 1) A good time to start is the middle to end of your second trimester, especially if you are already feeling your baby(s) move. 2) Sit on your bed or a couch with a couple pillows behind your back. Avoid lying flat. 3) Use oil over lotion as lotion tends to dry out quickly. Pick something that will help you avoid stretch marks. Avoid anything with mineral oil in it. I use Baby Bump from Due Maternity. 4) Use light pressure and work at a comfortable pace. 5. Remember to breathe.
Blessings and congrats on your pregnancy!
