    Hey hun, I had booked myself in for a full body massage before I found out I was pregnant and then had to cancel as they don't do massages of any kind for women in their first trimester. You will be absolutely fine with the facial.

    Maybe call the Spa and ask them hun but I presume they wouldn't advise having the massage xx

    Hi TinyToes, the ladies here are right. I'm a qualified beauty therapist and we are not able to carry out full body treatments on anyone in their first trimester. A facial should be fine but make sure that the products being used do not contain essential oils as some are not advised during this time (e.g. Rose, Marjoram, Clary Sage). Another option would be a luxury manicure maybe with a heated mask? Sometimes I find getting my nails done the more relaxing thing!
    Hope you have a lovely time away!

    As above! You need to avoid anything like massage in tri 1, that includes hotstones, Indian head and reflexology etc...stick with manicures, pedicures and facials, like already mentioned becarefull with essential oils and do tell them you are preg, but it doesn't mean you have to miss out completely! Enjoy :) xx
