10 Ways to Pamper Yourself During Your Pregnancy

 

As a maternity photographer in Surrey, I get to make pregnant ladies feel special.

It’s so important to take time during your pregnancy for yourself.  So here are 10 ways to pamper yourself during pregnancy!

 

1. Get a Pedicure

Often, pregnancy can cause swollen ankles and feet, so having a lovely foot massage and pedicure is the perfect way to ease away the strains.  Besides, by the third trimester, you may not even be able to see your feet!

 

 

 

2. Visit a Spa

 

What a better way to relax then a day at a spa or even a beauty treatment. A massage is the perfect way to soothe your aching hips, shoulders, and back, especially during the third trimester. However, make sure that the masseuse is trained in pre-natal massage.

 

Glitterati Beauty Salon in Weybridge offer maternity massages and for treatments.  Details can be found here. Alternatively, the Runneymede Spa, offer spa days, with maternity treatments available. Details can be found at:

 

 

3. Have a reflexology treatment

Reflexology is a fantastic alternative therapy treatment during pregnancy. Not only is it so relaxing, It’s believed to help balance the hormonal rollercoaster that pregnancy creates.

 

4. Run a nice bath

Another way to pamper yourself during pregnancy, is to take a nice bath filled with some soothing essential oils.  Dim the lights and play some soothing music. A great way to unwind, just make sure the bath water is not too hot.

 

5. Feel your best – join an exercise class.

Join a prenatal yoga class, or a group exercise class that is specifically designed for pregnant women. Alternatively, swimming is a great form of exercise whilst pregnant.

 

6. Get your hair done

Nothing feels better and a great way to pamper yourself during pregnancy than a visit to the hairdresser to get your hair done.  After getting your hair done, why not arrange something special, maybe a nice meal out or a visit to the cinema.

 

7. Why not arrange a mocktail party

Celebrate your pregnancy by inviting your friends over, where you can drink alcohol-free mojitos, margaritas and daiquiris. Or maybe incorporate this into a baby shower party.

 

8. Dress up

Don’t be afraid to buy yourself a few new maternity outfits. Wearing something nice makes you feel special, and you certainly deserve this. Maybe consider treating yourself to a new accessory or piece of jewellery if you don’t want to buy too many clothes right now.A good excuse for a day out with friends and time for a nice coffee/lunch and catch up.

 9. Get some extra sleep

Why not have a long weekend lie in with breakfast in bed or or enjoy an afternoon nap: any kind of extra sleep is something of a miracle, especially before your little one arrives.

 

10.Book a maternity shoot

Celebrate the beauty of being pregnant with some images of yourself.  Book a maternity photographer. Have a makeup artist make you feel gorgeous before the shoot and then have some pictures taken to make you feel special and capture images that will provide lifelong memories.

 

I offer maternity shoots, which include a makeup artist.  For further details visit here or call 07723 605 302.

 

As well as a maternity session, you may like to consider a newborn shoot. My friend Mya, a fantastic Baby Photographer in Huddersfield, has written a great blog on the before and after shots from a newborn session. Definitely worth a read.
