I'm planning to conceive my second child. Here are some question in mind:

  • When can I go to a spa during pregnancy?
  • Is there anything I should avoid at a spa while I'm pregnant?
  • Should I book a massage during pregnancy?
  • Can I have a facial when I'm pregnant?
  • How can I pamper myself at home while I'm pregnant?

Is this your first baby? You are pregnant not ill !!!!!

If you have any concerns about your health, then talk to the spa staff - they may not want to treat you using certain therapies if you are in your first trimester. Things to avoid? You may not want to sit and poach in a sauna - could make you light headed. If you are more than 6 months pregnant, you may need to ask for some extra pillows to help support you, but I can't seen any harm in having massage - I know I loved being pampered when I was pregnant - and the bump enjoyed it too - lots of movement when the therapist was massaging my abdomen.

Yes, you can have a facial during pregnancy.

At home care? Do anything you like that you enjoy - massaging oil into your skin helps to keep the skin in good condition (but doesn't always prevent stretch marks). And enjoy intimacy with your partner - probably the best fun I ever had!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

As JTH suggests pregnancy isn't an illness.

If the Spa you go to has a therapist that practices pregnancy massage, then take advantage of it. Massage is a positive thing to have during pregnancy (unless there is a particular medical complication to prevent this) with many benefits to your health and wellbeing. Baby picks up the good vibes as well πŸ˜‰

Unfortunately there is nonsensical attitude within the massage industry that pregnancy treatments is a no no. It's based on the fear of being sued if something goes wrong. All they got to do is a short training course and provide a needed service. If pregnant women were that fragile then they wouldn't be able to go to work, exercise, walk down the street etc.

So relax and enjoy πŸ™‚
