A comfortable attendance until the moment of birth
During pregnancy Shiatsu encourages the experience of feeling a new form of physical touch. The baby is thus integrated in the process. Shiatsu can be applied while preparing for birth and also during birth in cooperation with the midwife.
In the months prior to birth, Shiatsu supports a state of well-being; it helps ward off ailments such as nausea, fatigue and lower back pain- or relieves them. Soft touching will help the woman focus on herself and to unfold her inner strengths and thus to be physically and emotionally prepared for the baby.
The experiences gained with Shiatsu will help the mother to let go of the pain during birth. She will remember the applied soft pressure and resort to it in order to relax.
