Could you receive a prenatal massage in your 9th or 10th week of pregnancy? I received a spa package as a gift and it includes a prenatal massage.

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Probably not
Most massage therapists won't touch a pregnant woman until after her first trimester because this is the riskiest time for miscarriage.
Once you are passed week 12 you should no longer lie on your stomach unless your therapist has a pregnancy pillow or table. If you lie on your back you should have a small pillow or towel under your hip/back. No deep tissue massages.
