Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specifically developed for pregnant women, our selection of spa services will help the mom-to-be relax and create a healthier environment for both mom and baby. When you commit to regular self-care throughout pregnancy, you will be reducing your cortisol (stress hormone) and boosting your endorphins.
Massage will help release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. Our trained therapists will help work out tension and ensure you leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. The benefits of Prenatal Massage include emotional support, the relief of joint pain, improved breathing and relaxation. Either a side-lying position (pictured here) or prenatal bolsters will be used for the most comfort during your massage.

Welcome Your Baby Into The World
The manner in which a new baby is welcomed into the world during the first hours after birth may have short- and long-term consequences. There is good evidence that normal, term newborns who are placed skin to skin with their mothers immediately after birth make the transition from fetal to newborn life with greater respiratory, temperature, and glucose stability and significantly less crying indicating decreased stress. Mothers who hold their newborns skin to skin after birth have increased maternal behaviors, show more confidence in caring for their babies and breastfeed for longer durations. Being skin to skin with mother protects the newborn from the well-documented negative effects of separation, supports optimal brain development and facilitates attachment, which promotes the infant's self-regulation over time. Normal babies are born with the instinctive skill and motivation to breastfeed and are able to find the breast and self-attach without assistance when skin-to-skin. When the newborn is placed skin to skin with the mother, nine observable behaviors can be seen that lead to the first breastfeeding, usually within the first hour after birth. Hospital protocols can be modified to support uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth for both vaginal and cesarean births. The first hour of life outside the womb is a special time when a baby meets his or her parents for the first time and a family is formed. This is a once-ina-lifetime experience and should not be interrupted unless the baby or mother is unstable and requires medical resuscitation. It is a "sacred" time that should be honored, cherished and protected whenever possible.
