As if you needed an excuse for a little indulgence. These nearby spots offer it.

Spa treatments

Designed just for moms-to-be, Dolce Vita Spa’s Motherhood massage promises to soothe sore muscles, improve circulation, help with back and hip pain and lessen swelling. All while enjoying some R&R. (713-521-2100, DolceVitaSpaHouston.com)

Luxe beauty products

Head to Ulta Beauty for products made just for moms-to be, such as Belli All Day Moisture Body Lotion, which not only keeps your skin hydrated and soft, but really helps with the itchies.

One-on-One Attention

If you’re nervous about working out during pregnancy, or you just want your fitness regime customized to your needs, check out private yoga at Motherhood Center. An instructor will work with you one-on-one (or one-on-two, if you want to bring your partner along!) to create a mind-body session that will leave you feeling more toned, more relaxed or both, depending on what you really want.
