    Leg Massages

    Hi.

    Does anyone know if leg massages are safe in the first trimester? Have you had a leg massage?

    I've heard that foot reflexology isn't good and also massaging of the ankles. But not sure about just having a good calf massage (which I could use!).

    Thanks.

    I think a soft massage should be fine. I actually had a couple of foot massages in SZ when pregnant, but just asked them to reduce the pressure.

    Hello poppy
    I was told to stop all spa treatments including foot massages. I was only given a green light to see a Physio when my back was so painful in the third trimester. Best option to confirm this with your doctor. Good luck!
