Pregnancy: Think Well-Being!

Between medical appointments, various anxieties, the race for the arrival of baby equipment, looking for childcare…Mothers-to-be are frequently time to take care of them! And yet: massages, skin care or hair offer a welcome break and substantial profits… At all levels!

Prenatal massage

  • What is it?

It is a massage of the body of type modelling, very soft, realized on the back or on the side, using an oil or cream. It’s a relaxing massage which is not intended to relieve a particular medical problem. It takes about an hour. Expect between 80 and €100 per session.

  • For whom?

Pregnant women, between 4 and 8 months of pregnancy. Prenatal massage is particularly effective in the case of back and joint pain, sensation of heavy legs or stomach problems; It is also extremely relaxing: If you suffer from insomnia and stress, go for it! Finally, the prenatal massage can also help you prevent stretch marks.

  • Where to do it?

Choose a massage recognized storefront Institute (not Massager home recruited on small ad; also avoid the center of aesthetic which are in general not specialized in the practice of prenatal massage). Prenatal massage can also be performed by a physiotherapist. Ask your gynaecologist or midwife.

  • Contraindications

Avoid prenatal massage at the beginning and end of pregnancy (before 3 months, after 8 months): the stimulation of certain points, same sweet, can have unwanted effects. In the most extreme cases, it can even cause a start of work at the end of pregnancy !

Products used by the masseur must not contain essential oils, discouraged during pregnancy.

If you have oedema, hypertension, bleeding, abdominal pain or diabetes, avoid prenatal massage.

The skin care

  • What is it?

A treatment in a beauty salon, nothing better to feel beautiful and relaxed! And if you enjoy your pregnancy to get out of your “skin/hair removal cleaning” routine and offer a true moment of luxury and pleasure? “Spa packages”, including facial, manicure and/or pedicure, using quality products, are made for you!

  • For whom?

For all! However, attention: before choosing a treatment, consult a beautician and explain that you are pregnant. Indeed, your pregnancy can change the nature of your skin, which can also become much more sensitive deeply (but temporarily!)!It direct you to treatments need you.

  • Where to do it?

Choose a beauty salon offering many treatments, you’ll be sure to find something that suits you! Top: bio institutes, offering treatments based on natural and organic products.

  • Contraindications:

Especially not aggressive care (peeling, use of acids): your skin turned upside down by the pregnancy take wrong!

No products made from essential oils, discouraged during pregnancy.

If you have a mask of pregnancy, avoid care ‘techniques’ and just a massage of the face with a neutral product.

Finally, if you opt for a pedicure, attention to the massage relaxing accompanying: the stimulation of a certain point between the ankle and heel could induce labor in late pregnancy !

Hair care

  • What is it?

Cup, permanent, coloring, smoothing… Take the pregnancy to new look, why not? And if you’re already fans of some care asking maintenance, such as coloring or the lofts/straightening, thoroughly maintain your look… Attention however: during pregnancy, everything is not permitted!

  • For whom?

Want to change your look? A good cut, can also be an opportunity to score, even unconsciously, a lifestyle change: with the baby coming, maybe you want to take on more your femininity, or spice up a “sad” look… Go for it!
Caution in contrast to all the treatments using chemical products: coloring, bleaching, straightening techniques, etc… must be used with caution during pregnancy. Not to mention that your hair, just like your scalp, are sensitized by your State!

  • Where can we achieve them?

The hairdresser! Avoid care and other colorations achieve at home: during pregnancy, your hair and your scalp are more fragile and might react, even with a product that you already know. Tell your hairdresser to your pregnancy: it fit so the techniques and products and will advise you.

  • Contraindications

Coloring: she is not formally prohibited but rather discouraged, especially during the first trimester of pregnancy. At issue: the solvents in coloring products, including the fumes may be toxic. The question of the passage of certain products in the mother’s body, via the root of the hair, also arises. In short: during pregnancy, bet on the color 100% plant, preferably organic. Rendering may not be as bright as ever, but you don’t take any chances!

Perm, straightening, straightening: to avoid! Pregnancy changes the nature of your hair, but also that of your scalp. The result of these “shock” might disappoint you, not to mention possible irritation…
