Top three mum-to-be beauty and spa treatments

We know from experience how tiring pregnancy can be, especially as you reach the later stages.

Although you may be keeping a close eye on those pennies, treating yourself to an hour of R&R is a great way to boost your energy levels as well as have some much deserved you time.

There are a range of beauty treatments available, which have been specially designed to be safe for your bump, while offering the pampering you so deserve.

We heart the Thémaé Cocoon Ritual, which is carried out in conjunction with a Japanese-inspired bathing ritual. This is a massage is designed to prepare the body for total, deep relaxation. It is also specifically designed to address the tensions and aches in pregnancy and claimed to improve circulation. The skin becomes soft as muscles relax during this gentle treatment. The legs and back become totally relaxed leaving mum-to-be feeling pampered and calm. It's available at Armathwaite Hall Country House and Spa and costs £95 for 90 minutes

The aptly named Mum to Be! treatment is also another one of our faves. It begins
with a nourishing scrub to exfoliate the skin and gently stimulate the lymphatic system, followed by a nurturing full body massage this treatment brings peace and joy to mum and baby.  The oil blend and scrub has been created to nourish and nurture safely. Herbal extracts such as lavender, rose and geranium, which are known for their gentle healing energy; have been added to the Argan and Rosehip base oil.

Available at The Spa at Stanley House Hotel, it costs £80 for 85 minutes

The Elemis Mum-to-Be massage is said to connect mother and baby through the power of touch, working with two heartbeats as one. Specialised positioning on the unique Elemis beanbag is used to ensure the ultimate in safety, comfort and relaxation. Helping to relieve tension in the back and alleviating swelling in the hands and feet, while easing the mind and uplifting the spirit.  It's suitable for the 1st Trimester onwards and costs £70 for 1hr 10 minutes at the Titanic Spa.
