just wanted some reassurance after reading the web. My sister in law treat me to a dermolgical facial for my 30 th birthday. The lady that did it did not useany products that are ' dangerous ' or press any pressure points however whilst relaxing with a oakmeal mask on she massaged my feet! which i have now heard can start labour !!!????? has anyone got any feed back about either of these ?
I work in a spa and we offer facials to women over 12 weeks without essential oils. We however don't give foot massages at any point throughout pregnancy for the reason you mentioned. This may differ from place to place, and there is some debate as to wether or not it does cause early labour, but we'd rather not take the risk. I really wouldn't worry about it too much though, if you are concerned, speak to your midwife.
