I am pregant but I do love going to spas. Is it okay to visit a spa whilst pregnant?

According to the Spa Business Association the answer is yes you can. But not all treatments are recommended. You must check with your midwife or GP or on-site medical staff which treatments are recommended, if there is not already a special mum-to-be package on offer, as some treatments are not advised during pregnancy. These would include hydrotherapy and bathing treatments, many forms of massage (except head and shoulder massage), wraps and treatments involving heat, such as steam rooms, sauna, and bubble-jet baths.
