What better way to relax than with the perfect mum to be spa day? An idyllic way to treat yourself to well-deserved R&R during your pregnancy and ahead of the arrival of your little one, dreamy spa days offer a wonderful way to unwind. Whether you’re seeking a day of solo relaxation or would like to surround yourself with your favourite people, here are some of the top things to consider to make your spa day as restful and relaxing as can be.

With the promise of peace and pampering, here is our guide to the perfect mum to be spa day and what to look out for.

Chat to Your Health Consultant

Before setting out for your perfect mum to be spa day, it’s always a great idea to check in with your doctor or health consultant to discuss what you would like to do. This way, you can enjoy general and tailored advice specific to your own pregnancy, including bespoke information depending on your unique pregnancy journey and what to consider along the way.

For example, during pregnancy, certain essential oils and active ingredients may not be recommended. In addition, there may be particular activities that should be avoided, as well as those that can be especially beneficial. With up-to-date information from your health consultant, you can enjoy a more soothing experience that can be adapted to make you and your bump feel safe, comfortable and relaxed.

Find a Spa that Puts Relaxation First

When it comes to planning the perfect mum to be spa day, one of the most important considerations is… how relaxing is it going to be? For ultimate harmony, seek a spa retreat that puts relaxation first and enjoys a calm, quiet and soothing ambience. With a serene setting, considered facilities and amenities, lots of comfortable seating areas, and a welcoming atmosphere, you can focus on a holistic approach to self-care and achieving your wellbeing goals at your retreat of dreams.

At Glass House Retreat, our mum to be spa days encompass a range of wonderful treatment and relaxation spaces. Enjoying use of our indoor pool with ample loungers, outdoor wellness dome, activity studios, treatment rooms, gorgeous green spaces and more, allows you to tend to mind, body and bump as you savour your ultimate spa day. Whether you are seeking prenatal yoga, the finest, freshest food, or simply somewhere comfortable to curl up with a book, you can find everything you are looking for and more.

Look for the Best Pregnancy Treatments

With the imminent arrival of your little one, it’s all the more important to take some time for yourself and savour some R&R. Naturally, when picking the best mum to be spa day, a top deciding factor should revolve around the best pregnancy treatments for you. For the perfect day, look out for spas that offer tailored treatments specifically designed or adapted to pregnancy.

Depending on what you’re looking for, prenatal massage, facials, and manicures and pedicures can be just perfect for making you feel fresh and rejuvenated. Helping you to find the best treatment for you, at Glass House Retreat we provide a wide selection of treatments and services, from massage and holistic therapies to body care to facial therapies. For the best experience, get in touch with one of our specialists before you arrive and enjoy tailored treatment advice.

Seek the Finest, Freshest Food

Food is one of the quickest ways to nourish and restore body and heart – even more so when you’re eating for two. If you are considering where to go for your best mum to be spa day, take a look at what options are available for food and hydration throughout your experience. Being able to enjoy a variety of hydrating, alcohol-free drinks as well as a generous menu of local, seasonal produce can make all the difference to how you and your baby feel.

If you’re not sure what to go for, don’t be afraid to ask questions about food provenance and traceability and enquire about food options that cater to all stages of pregnancy. At the Glass House Retreat, we ensure all of our guests benefit from the most delicious, planet-friendly dishes with all of our menus feature 100% plant-based meals. Each made from locally sourced ingredients delivered fresh to our door each morning, we believe in nourishing the body and mind from within.

Welcoming Solo Guests and Group Stays

Mum to be spa days can offer a wonderfully restorative experience, whether enjoyed solo or with loved ones. For those seeking serene downtime, solo spa packages can offer a heavenly way for mums to be to savour tranquillity alone. Giving you the chance to choose your favourite treatments and go at your pace, these individual packages can provide blissful peace and pampering.

That said, if you are looking to immerse yourself in serenity with your closest family and friends at your side, then group spa days and stays can also promise an unforgettable experience. Ideal for shared activities and experiences, from group yoga classes to delicious dinners together, they can offer a heart-warming blend of socialisation and relaxation. Consider what each spa has to offer depending on what experience you’re hoping for to find the best place for you.
