So, you’ve decided to grow your own human. Congratulations!
We are absolutely stoked that you are an expecting mother (or maybe you are close to someone who is an expecting mother). The hardest task you’ll ever undertake deserves it’s own special brand of pampering. As a family grows by one (or two if it’s twins, and especially if it’s triplets or more in which case this pampering is a necessity), time to book in with the BloomMe app a special pregnancy massage.
Not only does massaging help to ease tension in the body, it has also been proven to reduce hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (hormones associated with stress) and increase dopamine and serotonin (happy hormones!). It also helps to reduce swelling in the joints, combat sciatic nerve pain, and above all give the expecting mother a bout of relaxation.
As always, discuss with your doctor or masseuse about getting a massage if you are pregnant. Most massages will be performed with you lying on your side, or else some spas have a special pregnancy table with a hole cut out for your belly to poke through.

BloomMe loves: Pregnancy Foot Massage – 50 minutes @ $250 before BloomMe discount
Pregnancy information for you, the swelling in a mother’s feet and ankles is due to the water retention, changes in blood chemistry, and a growing uterus putting pressure on the pelvic veins and your vena cava (the large vein on the right side of the body that carries blood from your lower limbs back to the heart) which forces fluid to the tissues on your feet and ankles. Ah, the miracle of birth!
Luckily, massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine Guru’s at Zu San Li have a solution with their Pregnancy Foot Massage. Stimulating muscles and working through knots, this treatment is a winning choice (especially when paired with their Pregnancy Full Body Massage – 50 minutes @ $380).
