Yes you may have a body massage during your pregnancy! How about a jacuzzi, warm shower or bath? Lots of options!
It is common to have lower back pain during pregnancy from pelvic bone displacement caused by the enlarging uterus. A massage will not correct this. You should see a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine who can show your partner how to help you with this whenever you get this pain.
