“Being a pregnancy massage ‘newbie’ (on my 3rd pregnancy!) I wasn’t sure what to expect from my first appointment when I was 29 weeks along. I booked my appointment online, in a sleep deprived daze, at almost 4 in the morning! (I was suffering from severe insomnia). When I first met Rachael I was immediately struck by Rachael’s warmth and her nurturing nature, yet also her professionalism. With her extensive knowledge of the body, especially considerations in the 3 different trimesters of pregnancy, I knew I was in safe hands! After my first appointment I had the best nights sleep that I’d had for months. For the rest of my pregnancy I had a massage fortnightly, increasing to weekly (and sometimes 2-3 times a week!) in the last month. At each appointment Rachael asked me lots of questions and tailored every session to my exact needs. I looked forward to every appointment – with 2 other children to care for (and hubby!), my massage time gave me a wonderful chance for some ‘me’ time, and to reconnect with my changing body and my precious baby. Thanks to Rachael, this was my first pregnancy without severe back and pelvic pain. (When pregnant with my second son I could barely walk by the time I was 6 months pregnant, and recovery after the birth was long and painful due to damaged tendons and ligaments, so being pain-free was a miracle!). As weeks turned into months, I couldn’t believe how wonderful I felt this time around! Rachel was also a fantastic support for my labour preparations, and my desire to avoid unnecessary induction etc. I have been fortunate enough to have had spontaneous, non-medicated births, and bub number 3 was no different, except for the fact that she was 10.3 pounds (nearly 5 kilos)! And yet, I had no back pain during labour at all (during my previous labours my back pain was so severe that I felt like my back was on fire). She was bigger than her older brothers by 600 grams, and yet I had managed to sail through pregnancy, labour and birth with ease – I know it’s all thanks to Rachel! Needless to say, I was back having another massage with Rachel within a few weeks of giving birth!
In the past, I mistakenly thought that massage was a luxury. A infrequent indulgence. Now I know differently – pregnancy massage, with a trained professional like Rachel, should be a standard part of routine care in all pregnancies. Rachel has a deep passion and dedication for supporting women through the miraculous journey of blossoming motherhood. I am blessed to have her as my remedial massage therapist, and honoured to also call her a friend.” – Danielle
