I have a voucher that my husband bought me for my birthday to spend at Dove Spa. I've checked and they do pregnancy massages but I don't know when would be best to use it. I'm 26 weeks tmw so still have 14 weeks to go. Has anyone had one and if so at what stage?
I had a block of 5 booked in for the last couple of weeks - only got to use 2 though as DS was born the day after the second massage. I definitely think it got things going (at 39 weeks though so not in a bad way!). I had a little stool on wheels so I could sit up for the massage, leaning over the couch (sounds hideously uncomfortable but was actually fine - I couldn't have laid on my front for long then even with a hole in the table! )
I had a pg package that included a back and foot massage at 30 ish weeks. The back massage was great (sitting on a stool leaning on a big squishy pillow on the couch) the foot rub was something else though - and not in a good way. I think its safe to say that if next baby is overdue I'll be going for some reflexology!
op I'd go as often as you can afford to all the way through.
Re central london I went to Kate Kahle in Clerkenwell all the way through pregnancy, twice a week towards the end. Helped to stay relaxed during mid pregnancy move. Also she also does a nice smelling, and apparently effective, stretch mark prevention cream.
i recommend this lady and she comes to your home and sets up a massage table! Amazing and very well priced too at £60 for an hour and a half. And the best bit... you are at home hence no travelling afterwards!
