So you’ve decided to expand your family and you’re pregnant. Congrats! But whether it’s your first pregnancy or your fourth, being pregnant takes a toll on your body. Some women are lucky enough to go through the long 40 weeks just as they did before they conceived, and some others are drained from conception straight through to delivery. No matter which category you fall under, it’s important to take care of yourself throughout the pregnancy. The easiest thing you can do for yourself and your baby is to stay relaxed.
Stress is a huge problem for pretty much everyone, but more so when you’re expecting. Think about what stress does to you regularly. Now that is being passed on to your baby. If you’re feeling overly stressed or anxious, take some time out of your schedule for some prenatal pampering. Prenatal massages are a great way to unwind and relax. Here are just a few of the places in Queens where you can get a prenatal massage.
