Just another Photofunia effect. I wished I really had done this when I was pregnant. It must be the hormones but I really loathed having my baby bump and preggy pics taken then. Oh well that’s one craziness that nine months of pregnancy brings. I was so indolent most of the time and why wouldn’t I, it’s so difficult moving around with a big and heavy tummy, plus an aching back and cramping legs. Now this made me think I should have had then a pregnancy massage to somehow soothe my discomforts. A massage is definitely relaxing especially for expectant moms who are having difficulties in terms of rapid increased weight and shifting postures. I wish I should have known earlier about the Pregnancy Massage DVDs over at Videoshelf. They have two (2) sets of Nurturing Pregnancy Massage Techniques that demonstrates the steps on how to SAFELY provide therapeutic massage techniques that focus on common pregnancy complaints such as low back pain, edema, neck and shoulder pain, leg cramping, nausea, and breast discomfort. Expert massage therapist and instructor, Meade Steadman, also demonstrates the appropriate full body massage in different positions for the first, second and third trimesters. I know of several pregnant friends and I’ll let them know about this.
