Clarins' Beautiful Mother To Be
This luxurious and indulgent treatment for face and body is adapted to pre and post-natal stages of pregnancy and to how you're looking and feeling at the time - it's also worth nothing that it's only advised as a postnatal treatment from six weeks after birth. The treatment promises to help ease aching backs, fluid retention, stress, fatigue and tired legs, as well as improving skin tone and elasticity. Which begs the question, do you have to have a baby to qualify for this treatment?
1hr 15mins 49, visit Clarins for more info or to find your nearest spa.

Townhouse's luxury pedicure isn't the cheapest one around, but includes an extended massage and luxury hot cream treatment, and is the perfect treat for any new mum.
