Women who are thinking about starting a family within the next few months, or even years, can do a lot now to prepare their bodies for pregnancy … Women can also consider massage and relaxation treatments before pregnancy. Paige Bickar, a licensed massage therapist who offers fertility massage and pregnancy massage, helps women get ready for pregnancy with reflexology, acupressure and cranial sacral techniques. She says the field is fairly new, but is evolving quickly as an alternative to fertility clinics that sometimes rely heavily on hormone intake.
