It goes without saying that being pregnant is a wonderful time in any woman’s life. It also goes without saying that its also completely exhausting; aching all over, sleepless nights, bloating, being uncomfortable 24/7, and not to mention an unborn baby deciding they need to practice their soccer skills on your bladder every 10 mins of the day. So yeah, ladies, we need a break!
Prenatal massages are a great way to relieve the aches and pains your body has accumulated whilst growing a human, and settle the sleepless nights that it sometimes brings with it. As well as this, they are known for levelling out hormone levels in the body (although those 2am cravings for ice cream with french fries may not be completely at bay).
So, because BloomMe is in the business of making women happier and relaxed, we have complied a list of our favourite places to go for prenatal pampering.
Before treating yourself to a well-deserved massage, make sure you know the do’s and don’ts!
- Be cautious about using essential oils during the first trimester of pregnancy, especially for mums prone to miscarriage.
- Opt for scent-free lotions, especially if you’re super sensitive to smells during this time. No one wants to vomit on the massage table!
- Make sure you’re in a well-ventilated room, especially if you’re receiving manicures and pedicures- the fumes from the polishes can be dangerous, not to mention triggering for morning (all day, in my case) sickness.
- Heat treatments, like saunas, tanning beds, hot springs, whirlpools, and hot tubs – let that bump breathe!
- Chemical peels of any kind, as absorbing these chemicals have not been proven safe for your baby.
BloomMe only partner’s with the best of the best, which means that no matter where you go, you can count on always receiving the best treatment!
