Massage is a natural way to reduce fatigue and exhaustion. It can also prevent and relieve pain and ache in the back, hips, and neck. Even during childbirth, massage is beneficial as it helps to increase blood circulation. Massage can expel fluid and help reduce swelling in the body. It also relieves many of the gut and bowel issues that are common during pregnancy. Further, massages reduce stress hormone levels and can therefore help against mood swings. Awesome!

And who knows? You and your pregnant partner may not have the energy or lust for advanced bedroom activities for the time being. Massage is a pleasant alternative way of enjoying touch and intimacy, and possibly also more appreciated at this point in time!
