More Than Massage: Prenatal Spa Day

It isn’t difficult these days to find a prenatal massage offered at your favorite local spa. What proves hard to find is spa facilities that truly cater to pregnant clientele with their services. If you were a regular spa-goer pre-pregnancy, it can be disappointing to lose a routine for relaxation you’ve become accustomed to. Not to mention, pregnancy often brings a host of discomforts along with it. What better time to find ways to really recharge??

We did the heavy lifting for you and found the best options for pregnancy spa treatments within driving distance from Baltimore. While not all the options are in your own backyard, many offering beautiful scenery nearby or sumptuous hotel accommodations so you can make a weekend out of your visit.

The Spa at Four Seasons, Baltimore

The Four Seasons prides itself on catering to their guests- why should that change during pregnancy? A quick call to their hotel spa and we found that their Signature Facial is a wonderful and frequently requested option for pregnant moms. Their facial practitioners are trained to use techniques and skin products safe for pregnancy, and guests can be seated or partially reclined for this service. No need to lay flat on your back! 410-576-5800

The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.

If you want luxury, look no further. The Ritz-Carlton has gone above and beyond customizing their traditional treatments for pregnant women, and created new services that really understand pregnancy concerns. Our favorite? The Lighter Legs treatment. This combo-massage-body scrub specifically addresses those tired, swollen, achy legs and feet so common in pregnancy. 202-912-4100


The Spa at Kingsmill Resort, Williamsburg

Skin concerns are listed as one of the top issues pregnant women face. Skin texture and elasticity can change, acne sometimes appears for the first time in years. The Rose Indulgence treatment at this spa will leave you feeling smooth, moisturized, and refreshed over your entire body. It’s a head-to-toe facial every pregnant woman should try! You might have to plan for more than a day trip to enjoy this destination, but Kingsmill resort features three golf courses, four restaurants, and a tennis club. Bring your partner and make it a babymoon to remember! 800-832-5655


The Spa at The Hotel Hershey

Travel northward and you’ll find your way to Hotel Hershey and their delicious prenatal spa packages. While Hershey specializes in everything chocolate (hello Chocolate Bean Polish!), we suggest trying the Mojito Sugar Scrub. You might not be enjoying actual mojitos these days, but the smell of mint & lime are sure to refresh and invigorate those sore, tired muscles and senses. Build your own spa day package and take advantage of the spa guests only lounge & restaurant, The Oasis. This one is a personal favorite of ours and the Tapas Bar is great! 844-330-1797

Wherever you have your prenatal spa day, be sure to check in with your provider about any treatments you plan to receive, inform your spa technician that you are pregnant and need accommodations, and speak up if something doesn’t feel right. High-quality spas want to have you leave feeling your best!
