When Your Legs Hurt During Pregnancy (And What To Do About It)

When Your Legs Hurt During Pregnancy
(And What To Do About It)

In the later stages of pregnancy it’s not uncommon for women to experience leg pain, as well as swelling hands, feet, and ankles.

That’s because there is an enormous demand placed on a woman’s circulatory system. Blood volume can increase by as much as 50%! But blood flow to her legs becomes sluggish, putting her at risk for blood clots.

Legs can also hurt because of an expanded uterus and a growing baby resting on the sciatic nerve. Warm baths, swimming, and pelvic tilts ease the discomfort, but turn to pregnancy massage for greater relief.

As certified pregnancy massage therapists, we love impending motherhood so much we took advanced training beyond the national massage certification.

It’s our passion to safely ease the common discomforts of pregnancy, like hurting legs, an aching back, and swelled hands, feet, and ankles.

In our safe, loving hands, pregnancy massage reduces leg pain, and many other discomforts of pregnancy. It also increases oxygen in your blood, which delivers more nutrients to you and your baby.

Pregnancy massage also stimulates your body’s natural painkillers, endorphins. It helps relieve anxiety or depression, and tones muscles. There are so many benefits to pregnancy massage that we can’t list them all here.

You can be assured that under the experienced hands of one of our certified pregnancy massage therapists you and your baby are receiving nurturing, physical support for a healthy birth, while easing the discomforts of a dramatically changing body.
