Lil Tip: Hospitals Offer Postpartum Spas

Lil Tip: Hospitals Offer Postpartum Spas

I'd like to make an appointment for one healthy (and quick) delivery, a massage and facial please. The hours and days following childbirth are not necessarily a woman's most glamorous. You may have experienced the miracle of childbirth, but it has left you exhausted, sore and with dry skin.

In a trend that I can get behind, a number of hospital maternity wards are now offering spa services for new moms. Some hospitals, like Peoria, Illinois' Proctor Hospital offer the services through another department in the hospital, while others bring in outside spa companies, like Minneapolis' Go Home Gorgeous, which has therapists on call to arrive after delivery. With spa packages that include treatments for feet, shoulders, backs and necks, it is certainly worth looking into the availability of such services at your hospital.
