GUIDE FOR MOMS-TO-BE

Pregnant women can immensely benefit from spa days, but there are several things to be aware of. Use our handy Pregnancy Spa Guide to plan your tranquil trip to the spa!

  • Take Baby Bump to the Spa

    Pregnancy is a time to really look after yourself and your unborn baby. Regular visits to the spa can ease your aches and pains, melt away stress and tension and help you get a good night’s sleep. Many women report a drop in confidence during pregnancy, so a trip to the spa is a great way to pamper yourself and boost self-esteem.

SPA DO’S

  • 1 Have A Massage

    Many spas don’t give massages to pregnant women in their first trimester, so you will likely have to wait until your bump is 3 months old to enjoy a massage. Your aching back and swollen ankles will absolutely love you for it!

  • 2 Top Up Your Pregnancy Glow

    Or Fake It. Whether you’ve got radiant pregnancy skin or your hormones are running amok, a facial is a great, safe treatment to enjoy when you’re expecting. Be aware that your skin may be more sensitive than usual, so opt for organic, gentle products.

  • 3 Ask Questions

    If you’re concerned about anything, don’t hesitate to ask your therapist. They are trained professionals, so they should be able to answer any questions you have and put your mind at ease. If you are uncomfortable or in pain at any time during your treatment, let them know immediately.

  • 4 Try Aromatherapy

    While some oils should never be used on pregnant women (like nutmeg, peppermint, rosemary and jasmine), many women find essential oils helpful in easing nausea and aches & pains. Frankincense, neroli and mandarin are particularly calming for pregnant women.

SPA DON’TS

  • 1 Don’t Use the Hot Tub, Jacuzzi or Sauna

    Avoid any areas of the spa that will make you feel too hot – raising your body temperature may impact the circulation of blood to your baby.

  • 2 Don’t Have Regular Manicures and Pedicures

    While it’s perfectly fine to enjoy the occasional mani & pedi, be aware that most nail varnishes contain chemicals that can be potentially harmful if you’re regularly exposed to them (formaldehyde and toluene). Request that your nail technician use products without these chemicals.

  • 3 Don’t Spray Tan

    The active ingredient in fake tan is DHA, and you may inhale some of this during a spray tan. There are no conclusive results on how inhaling fake tan spray could affect your baby, so it’s best to avoid it.

  • 4 Don’t Neglect Your Aches & Pains

    If your lower back is really hurting as your belly grows, book in for a pregnancy massage. If your feet are swollen, treat yourself to a foot scrub & lower leg massage. And if you’re generally feeling frazzled and stressed, book a half or full spa day.
