A massage is good for a mother after delivery, whether immediately or after a while. Below are some of the ways a massage could be beneficial to the overall reproduction system of a woman.
Aids to reinstate the uterus
The uterus is lined with some muscle and ligaments connected to the pelvis. These muscles are designed to stretch to accommodate the growing fetus in the womb. As a result, they may become unaligned, loose, and weak such that when the baby comes out the uterus is held in incorrect positions. While many women do not consider this a big deal, an incorrectly aligned uterus may inhibit the flow of blood and lymph. Apparently, frequent massage of the area will strengthen muscular support to the womb and ovaries and ensure the uterus go back to its rightful position.
Helps prevent postpartum uterus hemorrhage
This is heavy bleeding after birth caused by uterus failing to contract, cases of a retained placenta, cervical and vaginal tear, or bruising. The bleeding has been the leading cause of maternal death even though it can be prevented. A trial involving women giving birth confirmed that women who received uterine massage 10-60 minutes after the delivery of the placenta had reduced blood loss. The technique involved repetitive massage and squeezing. Due to the delicate nature, such a massage should be handled by an expert.
A regular postpartum massage concentrating on the lower belly will increase the blood and oxygen flow to the reproductive system; to improve scar healing on tissues, promote egg health, provide a better hormonal balance, and rejuvenate the reproductions cells. Additionally, pregnancy could bring along disfigurement or the blockage of fallopian tubes that can be handled naturally through a massage.
Despite that massage research could be in its initial stages, it has proven repeatedly to be the hidden remedy to better maternal health unknown to people.
There are several benefits to massage, but check with your medical provider before starting a massage regimen, discuss with them how long postpartum you should wait before getting a massage. You should also make sure to discuss whether or not you can have a full body massage or if there are parts of your body that should not be massaged.
