What is Labor Massage?



Most women feel great anxiety about childbirth and worry how they will cope with the challenges of labor. Massage therapy is one of the most wonderful tools to use during labor with numerous physical and emotional benefits. Research has shown that massage techniques and strategies can relieve stress during labor, relax muscles and promote overall calm for the mother.

Benefits of Massage


Massage during labor has enormous benefits and these include:

  • Reduces the laboring mother’s perception of pain, thus acting as a natural pain-reliever

  • Alleviates tension and anxiety

  • Aid in the production of endorphins or “feel-good hormones”

  • Stimulates contractions

  • Improves the flexibility of muscles

  • Facilitates blood flow, circulation and fluid drainage

  • Promotes less muscle tension

  • Decreases stress levels and fatigue – helping to revitalize the mind and body

  • Laboring mother feels a greater sense of emotional support

The treatment:

 The areas of the body that are likely to be massaged during labor include the back, buttocks, inner thighs, legs, stomach and hands. Keep in mind that not all women want to be touched during labor; some women may only appreciate having their hands, feet or head held.


The massage therapist  will change massage positions until she finds one that is comfortable for the client.
