Online spa bookings specialist spaseekers.com has added a new Pregnancy Spa Guide to its website to advise mothers-to-be on the kind of treatments that can provide targeted relief from common complaints including backache, water retention, stretchmarks and hormone-induced skin problems.

The guide includes advice on the kinds of treatments that are safe for pregnant women in their second trimester and where to find them. The site markets spa breaks as a perfect way to learn to relax – a key part of ante-natal classes.

In the guide’s ‘pregnancy dos and don’ts’ section there are warnings against massage up to the end of the first trimester and from week 30 onwards. Treatments to avoid when pregnant include the use of stimulating heat commonly found in a spa’s wet zone facilities, such as saunas, hot tubs, steamrooms and tanning beds. Ice fountains and cooling treatments are much less hazardous.

Organic and fragrance-free massage oils and creams are highlighted in the guide as things to look for when booking a treatment at a spa to avoid triggering nausea in anyone suffering from morning sickness.

At thirty weeks and onwards, it is particularly crucial that the expectant mother does not lie flat on her back for a treatment. She should, instead, be propped up and supported by cushions.

There is also a section within the guide where five top pregnancy spa myths are debunked, with complementary facts, designed to reassure the pregnant spa-goer.

Spaseekers.com represents more than 500 spas in the UK.
