Q: Is Reiki safe for pregnant women?
A: Yes! Reiki is perfectly safe for pregnant women, and in fact, it’s very beneficial. The energy helps relieve many pregnancy-related discomforts, relaxes the mom-to-be and helps her sleep better, and is also good for the baby.
The gentle Reiki energy helps on many levels. Personally speaking, I was attuned to Reiki I when I was five months pregnant. Reiki helped me with general aches and pains, with relaxing into sleep at night, and also helped me cope during labor. I felt empowered in more ways than if I had not had the benefits of Reiki at my fingertips. Also, my Reiki Master gave me several Reiki healing sessions while I was pregnant, and it brought me to a wonderful oasis of calm and serenity each time.
One of my students is a Nurse Midwife, and she gives her patients Reiki when they are in labor, and all women who are post-delivery receive Reiki to help them heal. If patients have a c-section, they get Reiki right after their surgery. I love her practice for the way they acknowledge and embrace Reiki as a complementary healing method.
I was so glad that I had learned Reiki when I was pregnant, because after my daughter was born, I was able to use Reiki to help soothe her too. I also gave my other children Reiki, and it became an integral part of my life. I created a Reiki for Parents course because I realized the value of Reiki for me as a parent, and I want to share it with all parents wishing to help themselves be better parents.
So not only is Reiki safe for pregnant women, I highly recommend it.
