After giving birth, you have many needs to cater to. This can be somewhat overwhelming especially if you do not have someone around to help you. It is one of the major reasons why you need post natal massage. In addition, you will have someone around to help you with one or two things during the massage period. However, it can be hard to get a massage if there is no one else around to look after the child when getting the massage. Here is what you can try to do to deal with this.
- Get help
Don’t feel shy to ask for help from your close relatives or even your friends. After all, you only need them around for at least the hour that you will be having the massage. You will be more relaxed when you know that you have left your little one with someone trustworthy. You will also get some alone time without worrying too much or having the guilty feeling.
- Insist on having the massage at home
Some masseuse have their massage clinics in other areas and they may need you to go to where they are. If it is possible, find one that is willing to give you a massage at home. This way, you don’t have to leave your baby for any minute and you will also feel more comfortable and relaxed in your own space. You can ask around for contacts of masseuse from other mums.
- Get your massage at the right time
One recommendation is to get your massage just after changing your little one and feeding him or her. When he is comfortable and full, he is likely to take a nap or just calm down for an hour or two. The person you entrust your baby to when getting the massage will also have an easier time.
As a new mother, you also need your time to relax. What a better way to do this than getting a post natal massage.
