Pregnancy massage touch points
Unborn babies are thought to start to respond to touch by the 13th or 14th week of pregnancy. Research shows that applying pressure to a mother’s abdomen can cause an acceleration in the baby’s heart rate and increase movement. While you don’t want to put strong pressure on your bump, gently massaging moisturiser into your tummy may help you to feel connected to your baby – and you may get rewarded by some kicking too. It’s a two-way thing, so give it a go!
It’s thought that the main way an unborn baby benefits from touch is through the effect it has on you. Studies into therapies for pregnant women have indicated that massage can reduce stress, take away the pain of physical symptoms like backache, improve mental health and lift the mood.
Pregnancy massage and meditation have also been linked to the successful treatment of prenatally depressed women, as well as a reduction in premature labour and low birth weight.
