Throughout history, the power of touch and massage has been closely linked to the work of midwives who used this safe and powerful tool to aid relaxation, ease discomfort and improve the physical and mental wellbeing of women from the time of conception, right through pregnancy, birth and the post-birth period. Whether you choose to self-massage or put trust in the hands of your partner or therapist, our expert midwives are on a mission to bring the benefits of massage to your fingertips.
Our expert team of midwives have developed a series of short how-to videos, where you will find effective techniques for self-massage, as well as a range of different massage ‘how-tos’ for your birth partner to get involved and help ease some of your symptoms or, simply, just pamper you!
