    Foot massages

    Can anyone tell me if I'm allowed to get massages while I'm pregnant? Don't know if it will harm the baby. Thanks!!

    i didn't have fot masseage for the first 3 mths. theni went to one that is fully qualified. the small triangular area under your ankle bone is the reflective point to your uterus, so they shouldn't massge your ankles. and & the whole foot massage should be dine gently. i had a foot massage every week. towards the end, maybe atarted around 20th wk, i had it twice a week. my legs where never swollen, no leg cramps. It was awesome!!

    I've been having foot massages throughout my pregnancy (I'm 32 weeks now) and my ob/gyn assures me that this is fine.

    I went all the time and had no problems. Just don't massage the area around your ankles.
