Are massages safe during pregnancy?


A pregnant woman is confused many times if she is able to have a regular massage during the first and last pregnancy. 

 the first stage of pregnancy (the first trimester) is the most dangerous . Many studies have shown that massage leads to many cases of miscarriage. Because it works to relax the muscles of the abdomen and lower back. 

Therefore, it is worth avoiding massages in the first period of pregnancy, while you can direct the massage in the middle and end of pregnancy, but with several conditions, such as hygiene and sterilization , in addition to  not massaging the abdomen and around it , but only the back and shoulders. 

All you have to do is lie on your right side and then left, and support the stomach and body in contact with the bed with non-hard pillows. 

After this, you will be able to receive the massage with light hands, not harsh hands , and with an emphasis on pressure and pain sites such as the lower back specifically. 

The important thing is that the hands do not touch the abdominal area. For fear of making wrong movements that may lead to the reversal of the position of the fetus or the relaxation of the flexors. 

Overall, avoid using large amounts of oils , and replace either with a small amount of them or with light creams.
