You are __ months pregnant. What you need right now is a prenatal massage in Birmingham al Alabama. My pregnancy with my first baby surprised me with how much my body ached and craved some relief. My husband gifted me with a prenatal massage. Just the ability to lay on my stomach on that special table for an hour was a gift! I’ve compiled a list of four of the nicest spas in Birmingham. Each one offers pre-natal massages, among other amazing services, so that you can give those achy back muscles some needed relief. Though a spa for pregnant women doesn’t exclusively exist, here is a list of the best spas with pre-natal services.
Spas for a Prenatal Massage Birmingham AL
Woodhouse is one of the lovely spas in Birmingham that offers everything from facials to massages and even nail services. Among some of the massaging services (there are many to choose from!) they provide a “mother-to-be” massage. This is only offered in the second and third trimester for safety reasons, but honestly…the second and third trimester are when you are really wanting a massage!! That baby is growing and your body is suddenly being asked to do things it’s never done before. And while you’re there you might as well have a facial too. The “hydrate and soothe” facial would be the perfect addition to that beautiful pregnancy glow. Woodhouse is one of the spas in Birmingham that also offers manicures and pedicures. And they’ve stated on their website that they offer neutral polish colors. Neutrals! The way to my heart!
Spas in Birmingham | The Retreat Day Spa
The Retreat Day Spa looks like an incredible option when looking for one of the best spas in Birmingham. The Retreat Day Spa offers not only pre-natal massages but also fertility massages if you are hoping to be pregnant but haven’t started that journey yet. What an incredible resource. I have heard that stress can be an unhelpful variable in the path to become pregnant. Fertility massage sounds like the perfect way to relax and unwind and allow your body to rid itself of stress.
Prenatal Massage Birmingham AL
Spa Greystone earns its place on this list for one of the best prenatal massage Birmingham AL due to the unique variety of services they offer. Did you know they have hydro-therapy? From their own website they state that “Hydrotherapy soothes muscles and joints, promotes relaxation, clears up skin and more. The therapeutic value of hydrotherapy is enhanced by the addition of essential herbs and oils. Hydrotherapy sessions at Spa Greystone are ideal for people with rough skin and aching muscles in our specially designed wet room and Vichy shower with 7 jets.” Now, you would need to talk to your doctor or the therapists at Greystone to determine whether or not this is a safe thing to do while pregnant, but I know that my muscles were achy after pregnancy so its at least something to keep on your list for after your sweet babe is born. Take a look at their prenatal massage package.
Pregnancy Massage Birmingham AL
The best prenatal massage Birmingham AL all have a truly luxurious feel. You go to a spa to escape specific stressors that are going on in your life. Say…some sore lower back muscles from carrying a baby around in your body for days on end! Escape Day Spa gives you that luxurious escape that you are looking for. The great thing about Escape Day Spa is that not only do they have a Mommy-to-be massage, but you can actually purchase several of them at once so you can have multiple massages throughout your pregnancy journey as well as post-natal options. I also love that they offer a variety of stone massages. I don’t know what it is about a warm smooth stone against your skin, but whether or not it has healing properties the placebo affect and the tactile feeling is worth it. Why is that so satisfying? Love a good stone massage.
I hope this is a great resource to help you find one of the best places to get a prenatal massage in Birmingham AL that will suit your needs! It’s so important to take care of your own body while you are nourishing the life of another tiny human. This is a special time. Treat yourself.
