What to Expect at the Day Spa When You’re Expecting


Luxurious day spa treatments offer a relaxing experience for guests, focused upon soothing the body and mind. I’m sure we can all agree that this sounds like the perfect day of pampering for a beautiful mum-to-be, however a commonly asked question is whether or not spa treatments are safe during pregnancy. While there are some specific spa treatments not recommended during pregnancy, you will be happy to know that our qualified team offers an extensive range of spa treatments in Melbourne that are ideal for expectant mothers.


Professional massage treatments are well-known for their inclusive healing properties, providing both physical and mental relaxation. During pregnancy, specialised massage techniques are used to ensure the comfort and safety of mum and bub.

Whether you’ve indulged in day spa treatments prior to your visit or you’re a mum-to-be who is booking in for some well-deserved relaxation for the first time, it is important to find a spa that encourages open communication with your qualified spa therapist. The team at Botanica Day Spa in Melbourne City offers personalised consultations, allowing you to achieve the revitalising results you are seeking. By building a lasting rapport with your spa therapist, you will be more comfortable during your treatment, enabling you to reach a greater level of relaxation, as you fully immerse yourself in the tranquil surrounds.

When booking your spa day, it is also important to advise your therapist of your pregnancy, prior to your appointment. By providing this information, your therapist is able to prepare for your treatment in advance, allowing for a seamless transition into relaxation on the day of your appointment.
