Spa treatments can relieve the main discomforts of pregnancy, and the spa atmosphere can relax expectant mothers overwhelmed by the changes in their bodies.
Mommy and Baby
Acknowledging that both the mom’s and the dad’s health can impact their child for a lifetime was a hot trend in 2018. After all, it takes a sperm and an egg to create a baby.

Stacy Denney’s spa program for pregnant woman, or those trying to conceive, Barefoot & Pregnant is all about community. Denney saw the need for an environment where expecting moms could communicate and interact with each other and find a nurturing environment before, during and after their pregnancy. Born of this need was Barefoot & Pregnant, the country’s first maternity spa and its accompanying on-line social community.
When I got pregnant, I was prepared for the nine-month moratorium on sushi, margaritas, and unpasteurized cheese. Modern American pregnancy, as everyone knows, comes with a long list of dietary no-nos. What I didn’t realize is that the list of spa prohibitions is just as punishing. Hot baths were a daily de-stressor, and the news that I’d have to give them up, along with saunas, steams, and a handful of spa treatments, dismayed me. Frankly, it’s hard to imagine a more welcome time for any spa treatment than when your lower back and shoulders are aching from your newly recalibrated center of gravity, your feet feel fat as flippers, and your supposed pregnancy glow is mottled with new freckles.
