There are a number of health benefits obstetric massage can give. Some of these health benefits of this type of massage is:


Reduces nerve pain: Many of the women deal with sciatic nerve pain, especially in the later stages of their pregnancy.This happens because  uterus rests on the muscles in the lower back and pelvic floor. When this thing happens, the pressure extends tension to the upper and lower leg muscles and produce swelling in these specific areas.

Lowers risk for premature birth: Research have stated that pregnant women who periodically  take prenatal massage are not prone to premature birth as compared to women who did not get a massage throughout their pregnancy period.
