Treatment

Our recommendation

Our lead therapist Nadège says: “This is a safe treatment for mums-to-be who are in their second or third trimester, or have recently given birth. It’s designed to soothe the aches and pains that come with growing new life. Your specialist will tailor the treatment to your specific needs.”

During your treatment

All pregnancy massages are performed by therapists who’ve undergone specific training, so feel free to ask any questions you might have before your treatment starts.

You’ll be on your side throughout the treatment to make sure your baby receives oxygen and nutrients by not compressing the umbilical vein.

Your therapist will use long, slow strokes and kneading movements in the places you’re feeling tense, with special attention paid to the lower back and legs.

During your pregnancy, regular massages can help you cope with discomfort as well as relieve insomnia, neck and back pain, joint pain, leg cramping and sciatica.

Covid-19 safety

After you’ve booked, your therapist may reach out to you via the Urban app to run through some pre-screening checks and make sure a home visit is right for you. If it’s not, they’ll advise what to do instead and we’ll refund you in full.

All Urban pros are trained in Covid-19 safety and will wear a mask and full PPE to your appointment. You’ll also need to wear a mask, wash your hands and help your pro avoid contact with other members of your household.
