Prenatal Massage And Connection

By: Care Messer | Labor, Podcast, Pregnancy | June 20, 2024

Get ready to dive into a world of relaxation and body love with our latest episode! Today I’ve got Prenatal massage therapist Nicole Trombley who joins me to chat about the wonders and the science behind prenatal massage.

Nicole shares some eye-opening study results that show moms who indulge in prenatal massage, experience fewer complications during labor and their babies are just as happy about it! Touch and connection help build the prenatal bond between you and baby. Prenatal massage will also help you use your voice in requesting consent based touch that will help you get ready for the touch based care you will be getting during your prenatal appointments and during labor and birth.

We also bust the myths of prenatal massage causing complications and its use for starting labor, either on purpose or by accident! This show is giving you the real scoop on how prenatal massage is a game-changer for your body and your little one’s grand entrance! There are some partner tips as well for what types of touch release the most oxytocin.

Nicole has owned and run Equilibrio Massage since 2004 in San Diego California. She and her team specialize in prenatal massage and have refined the experience like no other studio. Nicole and her team continue to learn about facia, the pregnant body and the art of modeling consent so families are even more prepared for their upcoming birth experience.
