POST BABY MASSAGES FACILITATE THE HEALING PROCESS
During your pregnancy and while giving birth, your body goes through a pretty traumatic experience (especially if you are a first-time mother.) You are likely to experience swelling at various parts of the body such as the feet and the arms due to water retention. When your muscles are relaxed, blood flow to these areas increases thereby increasing lymphatic drainage which leads to the elimination of waste and excess fluids from the body. This speeds up your body’s overall healing and allows it to go back to its normal state much faster.
POST BABY MASSAGES HELP TO RELIEVE PAIN
