What are the benefits of breast massage during pregnancy?

Breast massage during pregnancy and breastfeeding has many benefits. The chest is usually the first part of the body in which we feel tension, even before knowing that we are pregnant.

To limit the potential negative effects due to all these rapid changes, massaging your breasts with the right products from the start of pregnancy is essential ! In addition to preventing the appearance of stretch marks, breast massage during pregnancy also helps maintain tone or regain it. It is also ideal to relieve the breast in case of painful milk surges and to facilitate the ejection reflex!

How to take care of your breasts during pregnancy?

You are aware that the chest is a part of the body that does not have muscles! It is indeed composed of fibrous, glandular and adipose tissues. This muscleless makeup makes her very vulnerable to bodily changes (weight gain and loss), so it's not uncommon to see sagging breasts in moms. Indeed, pregnancy is a key moment when the breasts must be pampered! For that, several tips:

  • Remember to take a comfortable bra adapted to your new measurements. Good support is very important for your breasts as well as for your shoulders and back, especially if you already have a large chest.
  • Remember to stand up straight and do stretching exercises to stimulate the back muscles
  • Get into the habit of massaging your breasts with an oil to prevent the appearance of stretch marks, ensure good blood circulation and relieve potential itching due to hormonal changes.

These few tips, and especially the massages, will allow you to better understand, to (re)discover and accompany your chest with serenity in the changes it is about to experience!

Pregnancy care

Breast massage during pregnancy and lactation

Massaging her breasts, we have almost all done it without much conviction by putting on moisturizer! However, for pregnant women , breast massage offers many benefits. Softening of the skin, release of tension, breast disgorgement, stimulation of milk production, etc. To help you get started, we suggest you discover 4 ways to massage your breasts . For each massage, we explain its benefits and how to practice it!

Breast massage in 8

The massage in 8 is very simple! All you have to do is position one of your hands under one of your breasts and make slow movements in the shape of a figure 8. You will thus pass over one breast, then under it, then over and under the other several times in a row.

This massage is ideal for softening and stimulating the breast tissue as well as for releasing tension! It is ideal in case of engorgement at the start of breastfeeding, when breast milk replaces colostrum.

The nipple massage

It is the ideal massage in case of engorgement! Breast engorgement is produced by an accumulation of milk in the milk ducts. It often occurs when the milk supply is more than the baby suckles or in case of skipped feedings. When this happens, the milk can no longer flow. The young mother can quickly have very sore nipples and chest!

To relieve yourself, you can massage yourself by making circular movements with a finger at the level of your areola. After a few minutes of massage, your tissues will soften and you will see a small amount of milk coming out!


This massage is recommended for all future mothers and women who are not very comfortable with their breasts. Indeed, it allows you to tame your chest without touching it too much and to relieve tension in the breasts and nipples.

To perform it, simply start from the bottom of the breasts and go up to the neck, brushing the entire breast with your fingertips. If you're really uncomfortable touching your breasts, you can just look away and think about something else!

Breast massage to stimulate milk production

Having a drop in breast milk production is very common and can be caused by different things. Poor diet, stress, insufficient sleep can be reasons. One of the tips given to mothers to stimulate milk production is to put your baby to the breast more often and for longer. Unfortunately, this solution can quickly be frustrating for the baby if he is unable to suckle. It can also discourage the mother!

Well know that you can stimulate the production of breast milk with breast massage ! You can perform the massages mentioned above or these:

  • Make circular movements with two fingers around your chest
  • Then, form a fist with your hand and roll it from the bottom of the breast towards the nipples

According to some studies, massaging the breasts during breastfeeding also allows the milk to be more homogeneous!
