Pregnancy Pampering: 6 Ways to Treat Yourself

Posted by Honest Maternity on

Growing a baby is hard work. During the first few months, morning sickness can make you feel ill all the time. Then there comes a moment of peace where you are basking in the privileges of your showing bump. Not long after, the third trimester arrives, and it is another tough ride. The good news is, at the end of all of this you get to bring a cute baby into the world. 

However, this doesn’t mean you have to go through these tough months without self-care. Pampering yourself during pregnancy is essential. It benefits you and your little one. If you don’t know where to start, check out these methods for a perfect treat. 

  • Go shopping
  • Whether you are shopping for trendy maternity clothes, a pretty maternity nightgown, or sexy underwear, don’t hold back as you shop. It’s no news that ladies love to shop and it can do wonders for your mood, confidence, and mental health. Splurge freely with our store to get a variety of items you love.


  • Spa day
  • Being pregnant doesn’t mean a girl can’t have some fun relaxing moments. Choose a free day to visit the spa alone or with your fellow mums. Get a mani-pedi, facial, and all the luxurious pampering treatments you ever wanted. Make it a day to remember.


  • Prenatal Massage
  • A pregnancy massage is just what you need for those feet, back, and shoulders. It is a powerful way to release stress and pressure from your body and get your blood circulation in working fine. Call your health provider or book an appointment with the masseuse for an appropriate prenatal massage.


  • Indulge yourself with food
  • Yes, as an expecting mother you have a strict diet or at least guidelines on what you should eat. But in times like this when self-love has become a craving, you are allowed to indulge in a few desirable treats. Try a cheesy slice of pizza, a plate of fries, and much more. Of course, you can call your doctor to be sure and only do this if you usually maintain a healthy diet. Read a book or watch a movie to let the love set in. 


  • Get your hair done
  • Can you recall the last time you visited the salon? If this takes some brain racking that is proof it's long overdue. Find your comfortable and chic maternity clothes, add an extra supportive shoe and make your way to a professional salon. Sit pretty and savour every moment of being treated to a new hairdo. 


  • Take a trip with the husband
  • If you are married, there’s no reason pampering yourself has to be a one-man job. Go on a short vacation to a nearby city with your spouse. Stay relaxed and enforce your need for pampering throughout your vacation. Appreciate the little things and drink in all the love. Enjoy the romance and time together before the baby comes through. You may not get this opportunity so quickly after childbirth.
