During pregnancy, our body has to work harder than usual, which can lead to more physical discomforts such as stiffness, oedema and tension. Mamagrove is here for you and allows you to relax and re-energise when you need it most. This will help you to meet your baby in peace and confidence. Our breast and bodywork treatments are meant to prepare your body and mind for the period around pregnancy.
Besides pregnancy massage & bodywork, we also offer breastfeeding massage. Breastfeeding problems can actually start when our breasts, milk ducts, and nipples block the breastmilk from flowing well. These blockages can already develop during your menstrual cycle before being pregnant. Little pieces of dirt can cause the nipples to be blocked, which can later result in engorgement, reduced or insufficient milk flow and infection (mastitis).
We learned that the risk of breastfeeding problems can be significantly reduced if you massage your breasts with gentle lymphatic drainage techniques from week 36 of pregnancy onwards.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions before or after your massage. As a Lactation Masseuse, Holistic Massage Therapist, and Breastfeeding Counsellor, I can help you find the origins and solutions to your problems.
This prenatal massage is a full-body Swedish massage suited to hopeful expecting and pregnant women. We use massage techniques that are gentle though invigorating and focus on areas that need more attention during pregnancy. This treatment helps prepare your body for childbirth and relieves any tension, fatigue or anxiety you may feel.
A combo of Mamagrove's Prenatal Massage and traditional Lactation Massage. With the help of gentle lymphatic drainage strokes, we stimulate the blood circulation and as such remove waste products and toxines. At the same time we clear remaining residue from the nipple and milk ducts to allow a smoother breastfeeding journey later on. During this treatment we can also help you with antenatal expression or problems such as inverted/flat nipples.
