Pregnancy Treatments = Bliss

Jane Linley-Thomas is about to become a mom32 weeks in and 8 to go until I reach full term and become a mom. I can't wait!

As you know, or can imagine, my body has changed somewhat now being a human hatching house. Life as I knew it before is no longer.

Small things like getting up and down out of a chair, a bed a car and a bath are a bit of a mission. Finding a comfy spot to resume in bed is also proving to be quiet a challenge. Not to mention swollen feet and ankels,heartburn, itchy skin, and a sore lower back.

I woke up this morning and declared, "This mama is in need of some serious pamper time!"

I found the most perfect place that specialise in pregnancy treatments Polished Body Spa in Umhlanga Village.

I was totally blow away from the moment I walked into the pastel coloured Zen haven. Such a beautiful and stylish spot of tranquillity.

Today I had a treatment called a Yummy Tummy. Which is a facial for your tummy. It maximises your skins health and elasticity. Combined with upper back, neck and a shoulder massage.

I left feeling as high as a kite.
It was the best hour and 15 minutes I had spent in ages. ..You know when you are lying in a zone half unconscious drooling a bit and every now and then you are thinking "Please don't stop please don't stop."
Gugu you have hands as soft as an angles voice thank you.

Some of the other treatments they do are :
  • Lighten up-A spa Pedi: for the super mama that includes a mineral rich foot soak, exfoliation and massage for lower legs & feet. Promotes ease during the maternal marathon.  45/75 min
  • Mellow Mama: A relaxing full body massage using safe but effective pre-natal techniques to relax those specific lower back muscles that are carrying that beautiful bump. 75min
  • The Smoothie:The benefits of exfoliation are well known and this treatment is perfect for when you want a really relaxing massage combined with the fresh clean feeling of a gentle exfoliation treatment. Elastic skin is fantastic skin.  75 min

All pregnancy treatments included the use of the amazing Mama Mio range and what a product! I first came into contact with the Mama Mio Tummy Rub & Stretch Mark Oil some weeks ago and have been hooked ever since.

It is unlike anything I have ever used. It is so smooth and so good for your skin. It is loaded with Omega 3, 6 and 9 and get this its an un-oily oil which I love. Every night after a warm bath its time for a Mama Mio rub down finished off with the Mama Mio Tummy rub stretch mark butter. For a full listing of these sensational products go to
