Bellies & Babies was designed by Kim Stanley, a wife and mother of three. Kim and her husband came up with the wonderful idea of this pregnancy spa when she was pregnant with twins. Kim says, "Everybody always focuses on babies, baby showers, this and that and we just thought we could do something for the pregnant mom or thereafter."
Kim's idea of luxurious essential care before and after baby is just what every mommy-to-be needs! Bellies & Babies only uses 100% natural products, you do not have to worry about harsh chemicals endangering the life of your fetus. The staff is very attentive and courteous, they make sure you are comfortable at all times. Expect to be greeted with a smile and leave with an even a bigger smile after you receive their wonderful services.
I had the privilege to spend a complimentary morning at Bellies & Babies and this are the services I received:
- 50 minutes Perfect Pregnancy Massage: Our Texas Department of State Health Services certified massage therapists have gone through intensive prenatal training and can provide a safe full body massage through ALL stages of pregnancy. They'll also help you choose the 100% natural massage oil best for your symptoms.
- 50 minutes Get That Glow Facial: This intensive facial nourishes and replenishes, resulting in healthy looking skin. Enjoy a massage of the face, neck and shoulders, followed by steam to open the pores, extractions, and exfoliation, concluded by a treatment mask and moisturizer chosen specifically for your skin's special needs. And, of course, you'll get a relieving foot massage too!
- Bellies & Babies Signature Hot Stone Pedicure: Sit back and relax in our comfy chairs while you will experience a luxurious pedicure that begins with a therapeutic foot soak and gentle exfoliation with your choice of aromatherapy. Once your feet have been groomed and smoothed, we'll apply a calming Arnica gel to help reduce swelling. You'll then be treated to a relaxing hot stone foot and leg massage followed by an application of our Peppermint Tea Tree Foot balm to reduce achiness and leave your feet softer than they've been in ages! Select your favorite pregnancy-safe Zoya nail polish shade for the finishing touch.
- Aromatherapy Spa Manicure: Experience a luxurious aromatherapy manicure that exfoliates, nourishes, relaxes and beautifies hands and arms. Select your favorite pregnancy-safe Zoya nail polish shade for the finishing touch.
My first service was the Perfect Pregnancy Massage, the licensed massage therapist made sure I was comfortably positioned and before she started working her magic she asked me what my problem areas were. For me it has to be my lower back and heels, she worked as much as she could on those areas making sure baby boy and I were comfortable and safe at all times. By the end of my perfect massage my aches and pains had vanished!
My second service and my favorite part out of my morning was the Get That Glow Facial! I can't tell you much about this service because the esthetician's hands were so soft that soon after she started working on my face I fell asleep! I think I even scared myself because I was so comfortable and deep in my sleep that I snored! Embarrassing!! I'm only sharing this to show you how great their services are, I was so relaxed and felt so pampered I took a siesta. :) All I know is that after my facial my sking looked so rejuvenated and I had "That Glow."
Last but not least a mani/pedi. A girl's best friend, specially if you're pregnant and like me cannot reach your toes. At Bellies & Babies you don't get that harsh, toxic odor you will get at an ordinary nail salon. Instead you get an aromatheraphy of lavender from their 100% natural products. Sarah the nail technician is well trained in various techniques, to make sure your hands and feet get the rest and pampering they desperately need.
From the soothing music and classy decor, to the friendly staff and wonderful services, Bellies & Babies is the perfect day Spa for any mommy-to-be. I recommend Bellies & Babies to all my friends, family and readers. I myself will be back, next on my list are the Belly Imprinting and 3D Ultrasound.
