What positions are best for a postnatal massage?
No one situation works best. During the course of your massage, you will need to change positions many times, as your Caretaker or masseuse moves from one part of your body to the other. You may also need to acclimate your position for your comfort. For example, some mums enjoy lying on their breadbasket with their faces down. But others may find it uncomfortable especially if they’ve engorged or oohing guts. A side-lying or seated position generally works best for those who’ve had a cesarean. While some mums also like to use redundant pillows to support their reverse, guts, and tummy. What is important is that you let your Caretaker know if any position is comfortable for you. Also, let her know if the pressure is too important or if the strokes beget any discomfort.
