Pregnancy Massage

Hello

I have L3 A&P & Holistic Massage Certificate and have now been asked to massage a lady who is 4 months pregnant.

I haven't had any pregnancy massage training and wondered if it would be safe to perform a back/ shoulder massage as usual and simply change her positioning to lie on her side? Or are specific massage techniques used?

Would a hand/arm or leg massage also be safe in pregnancy as an alternative?

Thanks

You wouldn't be covered by your insurance if anything went wrong. Personally, I wouldn't do it.
