We are planning our very first PMA Pregnancy, Labour and Postnatal Conference, planned for May 2019. We are busy developing the conference content now, including discussing the findings from the cohort study undertaken by Dr Sarah Fogarty and Catherine McInerney around safety and pregnancy/postnatal massage. The conference will cover topics relating to safety during pregnancy, and will include a demonstration of how pregnancy massage treatment has changed as a result of the study findings. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.

NurtureLife® Practitioner of Pregnancy Massage Courses
Let’s talk about massage treatment for a pregnant woman; how and why it is varied from other massage treatments, and how the choice of client lying position and pillow support can gain the optimum benefit during the massage treatment.
The side lying position resembles a foetal position, and offers many physical and psychological comforts for a pregnant client. Pregnancy massage becomes part of her on-going perinatal support and care plan. The side lying position offers a range of very positive responses for Mum, baby and therapist. This position enables easy access to all areas of the body – it is important to treat the whole body in pregnancy so the overall outcome of the treatment is wholly beneficial.
