Q&A: I Deserve Some Pampering Before Baby Arrives, Right?
Prenatal pampering is definitely one of the biggest trends around—and rightfully so! Here are some of our favorite ways to treat yourself (and your partner) before diaper changing and 2 a.m. feedings take over.
HIRE A BABY PLANNER They’ll help you design a nursery, set up your registry and even send out birth announcements when the time comes. Sound a little too indulgent? Come on, you had a wedding planner… and you didn’t even have a huge belly weighing you down at the time. Doesn’t baby deserve the same kind of treatment?
TAKE A BABYMOON With a new baby on the way, it’s tough to predict the next time you and your husband will be able to get some alone time, let alone an actual getaway. Now’s the perfect opportunity to sneak off for a romantic just-for-two vacation. Plus, hotels and resorts offer tons of fun packages exclusively for moms-to-be and their partners. Get ready to be very pampered.
GET A FOOD DELIVERY SERVICE It’s tough enough to maintain a healthy diet when life is normal. Add the nutritional demands of pregnancy, plus your never-ending to-do list, and you’ve got a perfectly legitimate reason to splurge on food delivery. Some services even have special meal plans designed specifically for pregnant women, so do your research first. And always ask for a taste test before you commit! (Yum.)
