I received a message from our YogaMama Chastity announcing the birth of her baby :-)
Hope all is well. I had my little burrito on November 5, 2014 @ 3:51pm via csection. Aaryan Sandilya, he weighed in 7lbs 14oz and 20″ long. Mommy and baby are doing well. Being a mom is just an awesome feeling and just looking at him makes me have purpose. Everything he is wearing mommy made. Crocheting was so relaxing while I was pregnant.
Look at this little angel.

Hello YogaMama Community,
I asked my personal Massage Therapist & dear Friend Jenn Sommermann to share with us the benefits of Massage during Pregnancy. I hope you enjoy and make time to experience her healing hands :-) ~Leah
Top 10 Reasons to Receive Massage During Pregnancy
1. This time is reserved for just you.
2. Physical pain can be relieved (low back pain, leg pain, sciatic nerve pain, carpal tunnel syndrome plus many more) with massage.
3. Your body will be fully supported in a side lying position, with soft pillows surrounding you to make you more comfortable.
4. Studies show that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered, leading to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health.
5. These hormone levels also can lead to fewer complications during birth and fewer newborn complications, such as low birth weight, improving overall labor outcomes.
6. Massage during pregnancy can reduce anxiety.
7. Massage helps stimulate soft tissue to reduce overall swelling, especially around joints.
8. Studies show massage during pregnancy can decrease symptoms of depression.
9. The evidence points strongly to maternal and newborn health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care.
10. Why not?
