At 39 weeks all ?s: Should be directed to your OB i would assume that the message person would know not to keep the table too hot if they are trained to do prenatal message but since u are worried call your OB as u can go for an us and fetal monitoring
and i rec( have delivered 5000 babies) that u do not go past ure due date a recent study shows the ideal time to deliver is 39-40 weeks, induction is safe and easy!
