Getting over your pregnancy can feel pretty liberating. Put your baby and yourself both in the first place in your list of priorities. Take a little time in the day to practise self-care, which, for many mothers, means taking care of both their physical and mental health states.
The great thing about being past your pregnancy is that you are finally able to enjoy many things that you previously couldn’t for months. What are those things for you? You may be thinking of coffee, sushi, shellfish, or even a couple sips of your favourite wine.
But let’s go beyond the materialistic stuff. You may have stopped treating yourself to certain things which you used to go, like a facial treatment or other services with the same nature. Did something cross your mind immediately?
If so, there is no better time to get a spa treatment than now! But what if you are not yet ready to go out or you follow the practices of confining to your house? It is still possible! Some spa treatments can be brought to your home and you could actually enjoy them in the comfort of your home. You can indulge yourself in the goodness of being treated to relaxing services without having to step outside your house!
If you are looking a healing activity that requires little to no effort from you, this is it! It does not get any less strenuous than a postnatal massage. This massage normally targets affected body parts and water retention, commonly called the ‘baby weight’ or ‘water weight’.
If you have breast engorgement, there will be a breast massage included that is able to relieve engorgement, clear blocked ducts, and improve lactation. Since this massage is essentially done to ease the circulation of blood, you will find that a lot of conditions or discomforts you experience are alleviated from it. The improved blood flow can significantly reduce cramps, create a better posture, and get rid of joint aches and body pains.
The best part is? It also gives you the slimming effects, unlike other treatments! Depending on the type of massage you go for, your postnatal massage therapist will normally put on a binder across your belly to shape and tone up your body while also working on your posture. This will both help in slimming you down and reducing body aches.
If you want the slimming effects without having to exercise or strain your body, a massage is what you are looking for! Be sure to get a proper postnatal massage and not simply a normal massage that is meant for everybody. Plus, there are a lot of massage services that are home-based, so you can let your body be treated while you are resting at home.

If you are lucky, you get that pregnancy glow where you gain a baby-butt skin with no spots or zits, looking better and brighter than ever. If you are like many others, your skin may have been attacked by endless breakouts – almost all the way throughout your pregnancy.
Due to the raging hormones, your skin may be acting out worse than it had ever before. This may cause not only the presence of unbearable zits or spots but also scars from the pimples from the early time of your pregnancy. There is no reason to not get a facial treatment when you are pregnant, but some mothers automatically end up pushing back their regular appointments simply because how they look matters the least to them during this time.
Sounds like you? Then it is time to get back on track and focus on yourself again! Facial treatments normally start with cleansing, exfoliating, the painfully pleasing extracting, and finally the toning and moisturising. Didn’t get that glow during pregnancy? No worries! You can still get the post-pregnancy glow!
Love what the beautician does during facial treatments? You are going to love this one! It is basically applying similar techniques and procedure, except onto your body! Not many people would normally go for it, but once you go, you will be hooked easily and you will find yourself going on regular sessions.
The treatments normally include the application of body mask, scrubbing, and a bit of massage. These are meant to cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate your skin respectively. Some extensive packages also include body or belly-wrapping which is meant to help you shape up.
Undoubtedly, a lot of mothers are eager to get on a weight-loss treatment after giving birth, and we are not saying you should not do it. However, whatever you choose to do, make sure to not compromise your health. If the treatment requires you to eat certain slimming pills with potentially harmful ingredients, ditch it immediately.
Your baby is still breastfeeding and your body is in a fragile phase that needs extra care, not be posed with anything that can possibly damage their well-being. If you can, stick to only the physical treatment like this one so you will not have to orally consume anything that can affect your insides.
While mani/pedicure is generally fine and safe to get during pregnancy, some mothers still have concerns that inhaling the scent of the nail polish may cause certain reactions to the newborns they carry. Although this concern may sound excessive, it is definitely understandable and to some extent, justifiable.
The nail polishes do contain harmful solvents and chemicals which, if inhaled in a huge volume and excessively, can cause headaches, light-headedness, or vomiting – all of which are basically the last thing a pregnant mom will need, especially one who experiences morning sickness. One normally will not inhale a dangerous amount of nail polish fumes when putting them on, unless done on purpose. Regardless, you are allowed to have your worries.
If you have waited your whole pregnancy to have your nails painted again, your wait is over! You can set that appointment with your nail technician and get the colours that you love, simply because you deserve to have adorable looking nails.
If you follow the traditional confinement practices, you may be told to not wash your hair or even if you try to disobey, you may restrict yourself to only bathe using warm, herbal bathwater. There is nothing wrong with that, but finally being able to wash your hair feels like a different kind of liberation. Your head probably hasn’t felt the sensation of cold water for almost a whole month. This is the time to let it have a feel of it again and feel more refreshed!
Some mothers who are not big on confinement practices from the get-go will easily wash their hair as well. The thing is, washing your hair can be a tough job. All that washing, shampooing, and applying conditioner, and rinsing again? Sounds like too much work, especially if your hair is long. Set your appointment with your choice of hairstylist now. Some hairstylists will massage not only your head but also both your neck and shoulders, so that’s pretty much a two-in-one package. What mom would say no to that?
There are various post pregnancy spa treatment services that you could opt for to boost your postnatal recovery. You simply have to find one that will work for you, and preferably one that you do not mind getting over and over again because most treatments can make you see changes only after several sessions. You can even go for several of the treatments listed above! Remember, your recovery matters as much as your little one, so treat yourself the way you would treat your baby!
