I need a massage


Massage.  Should be covered for pregnant mamas.  Seriously!

I have to sleep differently, I walk funny, I get up from chairs funny, and I sit funny.  I think I do everything funny right now!

My body is all out of whack, and I think a massage would be the perfect thing to fix it!  An hour in a warm, quiet room with relaxing fragrances and sounds

So, it’s got me wondering, of all the tests, blood draws and other requirements of pregnant women why, oh why can I not get a massage using my health insurance?  I’m not even thinking 100% coverage.  What about just a discount?  Come on, PPO get with it.

What do you think, moms.  Shouldn’t we at least get a massage or two during our pregnancies?  Maybe even a facial, too?

Yeah, I think us mommas will be much better off.  And, honestly, the rest of our families will, too!

Hmm…this has me thinking, too…what about a massage for Christmas?  I think I’ll add that to my wish list!

Did you do pregnancy massages?  Was it heavenly?

  1. I totally think you should. And I’ve never birthed babies.

    Close to the end, I even start to hurt for you. Foot rubs, back rubs, full bodies, the whole she-bang.

    You might be on to something…

  2. You should talk to your doctor about it. My doctor ordered massages once a week my third trimester and turned it in to the insurance company. It’s worth a try.

    1. I think you might be onto something. I might ask about it! Where did you have the massages done?

  3. I only had one or two massages while I was pregnant, but I went to the chiropractor all the time. That was a huge help. And yes, I think BOTH should be covered while pregnant. Great idea! 🙂

    1. This reminded me to ask the chiropractor. Turns out I can get a 30 minute one, and since I’ve met my deductible, I’ll have to only pay 10%. not terrible.

      But, I have been going, when I take the time to remember to get myself there, and it does help out a lot.
