A Special Relaxation and Pregnancy Celebration Idea

Okay, I admit that part of my reason for writing this is to brag about my amazing husband, who, for my birthday yesterday, arranged childcare for the kids and scheduled a spa package for me at a local day sap called Ummelina. It is a really nice spa and I had a great time.

They have a prenatal spa package called the Mother's Creative Journey, a 3 1/4 - 4 1/2 hour experience which includes hand and foot massages, facial, and full body massage. It sounds absolutely heavenly. I was thinking how awesome it would be to have an expecting mother's friends meet her either before or after the spa journey for a baby shower or blessingway in their Tea Spa. The atmoshere would be perfect for something like that. You may want to check with spas in your area and see if they offer anything like these options.

Of course you could always save money by doing home spa treatments at your shower or blessingway instead. I am going to work on a list of various blessingway activity ideas (complete with links to where some women have shared their own blessingway experiences) and hopefully get it organized into a post sometime soon.


  1. I know I would have loved one before-but a massage right after birth in the hospital-THAT would be heavenly.

  2. What a wonderful blog you have! I am a doula in training and did a search on rebozos. I love your post. May I link back to it on my page? I fell in love with the idea of using a rebozo during labor during my doula training. Been trying to get my hands on one since then.

  3. Hi, Kristi. Thank you, and feel free to link to anything you would like to! If you liked the rebozo post, you may also be interested in the post I wrote last month on "Dancing Your Baby Out," as well :)
