What are the benefits of NurtureLife®

Pregnancy is a constant state of change; a NurtureLife® pregnancy massage specialist offers specialised support through the perinatal period. The body undergoes many changes and the discomforts of pregnancy and postpartum can be relieved. At NurtureLife® we believe a well-supported mum will have a positive journey into motherhood. Regular NurtureLife® pregnancy massage helps to support the many changes occurring from week to week, and between trimesters, allowing the body to adapt through the pregnancy. We focus on the mother-baby connection creating a warm, safe, secure nurturing environment where mum can rest relax and recharge. The NurtureLife® experience assists in relieving many of the common causes of discomfort during pregnancy, including:

  • Insomnia is eased through improved sleep patterns
  • A greater sense of relaxation helps to reduce stress and anxiety levels

  • Oedema, swelling and discomfort in the legs and arms is eased, which reduces the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Leg cramps are minimised due to improved circulation
  • Focus on mother baby connection

Rest Restore Recover

The early postnatal weeks are the time for your body to readjust and recover from the birth and pregnancy. The joy of adapting to new motherhood can also be exhausting, as the body is undergoing many changes. At NurtureLife® we aim to enhance the mother’s physical and emotional wellbeing during this time through a variety of methods, again with massage as the central focus. We consider the body spent 9 months creating a new life and overnight we are presented with a new baby. This is the optimum time when the body requires support to adjust and unwind the 9 months of pregnancy. NurtureLife® for the postnatal period is wonderful time to recharge readjust the mind and body to motherhood. New mums need time to relax and reduce any pain or discomforts onset in pregnancy or labour; what better way to achieve this than with a nurturing massage.
