« The plan | Main | Massage for infertility? »

June 11, 2007



I think you could make some money doing this, just do forearms only! Maybe a job after the baby is here, and you aren't so busy? (Joking....)


I've never had a massage. I have heard good things, of course. I'm too much of a cheapskate to get one (paying someone to touch me? I can do that for free at home!), but one of my friends had biweekly massages during her pregnancy and says she couldn't've done without.

That's interesting about the forearms thing. Maybe massages would be good for preventing carpal tunnel. I got that when I used to work at a computer a lot for, you know, a job. Hurt!

I do think sometimes it would be good to massage the baby. She does get lots of touching and cuddling, though, which I guess is why massage is so beneficial. We just need more touch, right?
