MARGATE, Fla. – A Margate spa is offering mothers-to-be rest and relaxation during some of the most important months of their lives.
As one of the only pregnancy spas in the state, Belly Love Spa caters to pregnant women by providing services to help "the mind, body, and spirit prepare for and acclimate to motherhood."
Owner Shanna Feldman learned firsthand how important therapies were during the crucial months of a pregnancy of her own.
"When I was pregnant, I had a really rough pregnancy and it was really hard for me to be relaxed and calm. I just wanted to create an oasis for pregnant women so they can come here and at least have some stress relief," Feldman told Local 10's MJ Acosta.
According to its website, the facility offers services similar to other spas, such as nail and massage treatments, but are designed to be extra safe for those who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant or have recently had a baby.
Women can also receive a 3D/4D ultrasound that gives a glimpse of their baby's face for the first time.
First-time mother-to-be Brittany Renna has found relief in Belly Spa's services.
"The best advice I've gotten was to cherish the time that I've had with the baby inside of me because that's the only time I actually get with the baby alone," Renna explained.
"I want the clients to feel like a part of our family." said Feldman. I want them to come in and be a part of the Belly Love family when they're pregnant and even after."
Belly Love Spa is open Monday through Saturday. For more information, click here.
