The benefits of massage during pregnancy, labour and postpartum
Why massage is important during pregnancy, labour and postpartum.
The Zita West Back Ease Massage Oil is an absolute essential during pregnancy, labour and postpartum. Massage improves circulation and oxygen levels in the blood which helps to alleviate body aches and tightness, reduce anxiety and stress, improve mood, and ease insomnia. It is packed full of enriching oils to keep the skin moisturized and therefore prevent stretch marks and itchiness. Simply apply a pipette full of our enriching oil to your or your partner's hands and rub them together before massaging your skin, back, feet or anywhere on the body.
Massage can be used at all points in your fertility journey. When you are trying for a baby your mindset is so important at this time and a massage can really help you to relaxed and stay connected with your partner. During pregnancy massage is a great way to bond with both your baby and partner, promote elasticity of your growing body and alleviate any aches and pains. During labour massage stimulates your body to release endorphins, the natural pain-killing, mood-lifting chemicals produced in the brain. And finally postpartum, life can be so busy so it is important to take the time to breath and bond with your baby, partner or family and friends so that you can appreciate the change to your body and life.
