Pregnancy Massage – A Guide for Dad’s to Be

by Jenny Nanninga

Jenny, 5 Minutes for Mom contributor, is here to share her insights into Pregnancy Massage Dads To Be DVD through this review and giveaway. While we were compensated to write this post, our writers views and opinions remain her own. 

Pregnancy does a number on your back.  The shifting of your spine, as your body compensates for the baby growing inside, can not only cause you daytime pain, but can prevent you from sleeping as well.

Back pain plagued me during both of my pregnancies and postpartum as well.  Pre-natal massages, however, are expensive.  This is why I was thrilled to have my husband watch the Pregnancy Massage Dads To Be Guide DVD.  This simple, visual step-by-step guide is the perfect way for pregnant and postpartum women to receive the relief and relaxation they need without spending a lot of money.

The video, create by a licensed massage therapist and trainer teaches the correct form for massage.  I was really impressed with the thorough instructions, including tips on how to avoid bones.  A lot of emphasis is put on understanding pressure.  This is key as everyone has a different preference. These videos also taker the massager into consideration and teach how to avoid obtaining a backache yourself while giving the massage.

The few professional massages I received during pregnancy were very relaxing, but also very expensive.  I love that I can now achieve that same level or relaxation at home and in a comfortable setting.

The DVD covers the following topics:

  • Cautions and Guidelines
  • Pressure and Awareness
  • How-to Avoid Bones
  • Foot Massage
  • Right Foot
  • Body Massage: Right Side
  • Legs, Hips, and Feet: Right Side
  • Hips, Back, and Right Side
  • Arms and Hand: Right Side
  • Neck and Shoulder: Right Side
  • Body Massage: Left Side
  • Legs, Hips, and Feet: Left Side
  • Hips, Back, and Left Side
  • Arms and Hand: Left Side
  • Neck and Shoulder: Left Side

You can select a scene to work on a specific technique or area. What a great feature!  Instead of fast-forwarding through the entire DVD, you can select an area that is giving you trouble and watch only that scene.

The soothing voiceover allows the video to be played during a massage.  This is a fantastic advantage because Dad’s don’t need to memorize all of the skills.  Instead they can merely play the DVD while administering the massage and the soothing tones and voices won’t detract from mom’s relaxation.

Moms can be comforted and relaxed in just minutes, or can enjoy a safe 20-minute massage with the help of this Pregnancy Massage DVD. This step-by-step guide would make a great gift and can help your family bond before the big day arrives!
