The positioning of the couch and mother to be is critical to the safety and well-being of both mother and baby.

The massage is very beneficial for mother and baby I believe that the father should receive regular massage’s as well, while his partner is going through changes in her life and body, this can have a huge effect on both parents. Tension, Anxiety, Uncertainty and Concerns can cause muscular aches and pains through stress, time out for both of them would be beneficial.
Massage releases the happy endorphins, also a hormone called Oxytocin which helps prepare the mother’s body for labour.
