Pamper yourself

Pregnancy gives you the perfect excuse to treat yourself. We share some ideas.

Now you have a perfect excuse to treat yourself. Here are a few things you can do:
  • If you don’t have other children, sleep in whenever you can. You won’t have the opportunity to do this for a long time!
  • Have a massage. If you have an aromatherapy massage, check with your doctor which oils are safe to use.
  • Have your hair done.
  • Go for a facial or pedicure.
  • Go shopping.
  • Watch a movie.
  • Read a good book.
  • Go out to dinner with your partner or friends.
