Pregnancy Massage And Prenatal Pampering: Spa Safety During Pregnancy
During this extremely sensitive time, safety precautions are a necessity.
- When in doubt, speak to your doctor before booking any prenatal treatments.
- Be cautious about using essential oils during the first trimester of pregnancy, especially for mums prone to miscarriage.
- Use safe essential oils, in droplets or even diluted with a carrier oil. The best include citrus oils, lavender, ylang-ylang, and eucalyptus to name a few. Make sure you’re using 100% pure therapeutic-grade oils in your massages.
- Opt for scent-free lotions, especially if you’re super sensitive to smells during this time.
- Make sure you’re in a well-ventilated room, especially if you’re receiving manicures and pedicures.
- Attending spas during your first trimester, so as to not affect the baby’s early development.
- Heat treatments, like saunas, steam rooms, 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.
- Essential oils like nutmeg, rosemary, basil, jasmine, clary sage and juniper berry – especially without consulting a doctor first.
