One thing will be to have an immaculate presence - website, etc. ... it will speak volumes for your professionalism. And, knowing that you may not have much fudge-space in that area when starting out with this group/type of client.
I was told som years ago that when doing pregnancy massage, things have to be even more pristine than during regular massage and that there isn't much room for error in presentation. That includes things like smells, linens, lotions, etc. as the pregnant female has a heightened sensitivity than most other clients.
I belive if you should choose to work with this population, it would be important to keep in mind, as most of your new clients will be individuals who do not know you. So, they will most likely not be forgiving of things that a regular client would.
I don't have that immaculate kind of presence, which is why I rarely work with pregnant women who aren't already my long term and/or previous clients. I am more earthy and a little less malleable, which can be nice and comforting, but is certainly not for everyone. Especially many of those who are protecting there little unborn bundle of joy. I realize my limitations and work accordingly.
I've been told by one of my clients, that this gentleman
is an excellent pregnancy massage therapist in Houston.
