Many moms take home new tips to stay comfortable through the night and the duration of their pregnancy.
Pillowing: Rather than use specialty pregnancy pillows or bolsters, I use a variety of commonly available pillows. Our goal is for the level of comfort experienced in my office to be something moms can recreate at home. Sessions focus on side-lying and reclining positions. For certain discomforts, pillowing prone (face down) is available.
Stretches: Prenatal sessions incorporate the Pelvic Stabilization Technique; this is a series of stretches to release the pelvis evenly to stabilize the gait, reduce pelvic ‘tipping’ and reduce common pregnancy pressure.
Belly Massage: Belly massage is optional. Our focus is on releasing the respiratory diaphragm and soft tissue attachments of the uterus and hips. Belly massage is often helpful in reducing anterior hip/pubic symphysis pain as well as improving digestion and reducing shortness of breath.
