I had one back in January. I was supposed to have another one in February but I was sick so I canceled. During labor I wanted to be constantly massaged, but not just touched. If DH just tried to stroke my hair then I yelled at him, but if he was massaging my legs/back/etc then that was fine.
haven't had one. First two labors I didn't want touched unless I specifically requested it - and then it had to be just right. My last labor I wanted touched..a lot, but no one knew cause I couldn't articulate

In the packet that my midwife gave me, it mentions that each client gets three prenatal massages by on of her center employees. She hasn't mentioned it to me yet though, and I intend to ask her about it at tomorrow's appointment. I really need one! The packet says one can be used during labor if the therapist is available, and one can be used up to six weeks after the birth. I remember after Jonah's birth, I felt like I had been hit by a car (and yes, I have been hit by a car, and the feeling truly is almost identical!!) I think I would really benefit from one after.
Click the blinkies!
Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!
I've never had one, but I've always thought they sounded wonderful! I would love to get one this time around!...As far as being touched during labor, I enjoyed having my back rubbed, but other than that, not really massaged...could be different this time around though...normally I love being massaged!
