Your pregnancy is a beautiful time in your life and it’s your last chance to truly put yourself first before the baby comes. Invest in your own wellbeing and indulge in pre-natal spa treatments to create a space of uplifting positivity and relaxation to nurture your growing baby.
Whether you simply want your spirits lifted or you need those aches and pains tended to, the following selection of pregnancy spa treatments available all across Ireland are designed to enhance your pregnancy.
Vedas Spa in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
Vedas Beauty: Skincare Clinic & Day Spa in south Dublin is a beautiful independent day spa and while lots of spas in Dublin offer pre-natal spa treatments, Vedas Beauty have one of the most comprehensive offerings for Mums-to-be in our opinion.
They offer a range of pregnancy body and back massages, body scrubs and Pai Skincare facials that use specific techniques and super skin-friendly products that won’t harm Mum or baby. They even offer a post-pregnancy massage that helps the body re-adjust as it natural adapts to being just one person again.
On top of that, they have carefully designed two spa days specifically for expectant Mums, ranging from €150 – €290, that include lunch and will pamper you from head-to-toe all the while protecting your little bundle.
