Babymoon and maternity spa

The old adage ,patients are the best teachers  for doctors holds very true.Recently two of my patients informed me of two new concepts of modern day pregnancy and delivery.It is all about celebrating motherhood.None of them is directly related to medical aspect of Pregnancy care but I guess are surely interesting and good concept.

BABYMOON i.e, your honeymoon prior to arrival of your baby after which life would be busy for a while.Couples take time out in third trimester to be together away from the routine humdrum of life.I googled further and realised that there are various hotel groups all over the world who have 'special' babymoon packages.Maybe this could be something which can be an add on on your Pregnancy wish list.

Then came a lady who wished to know if there were any delegated maternity spa.Now again a new concept for me.And after googling and with help of another patient of mine came to know of a place marketed by Mahindra retails ( mom and me chain of stores) who have two such places in India ,one in Delhi and another in Bangalore which has hired a group of non medical professionals like a reiki expert,counsellor,massage specialist etc who conduct antenatal Lamaze classes .They have special tables where mothers can lie on their belly and get pamper.Interesting.In fact this concept has started arousing a businesswoman in me.Still an untapped area in India and we know there are many couples in India who don't mind paying a price for all the pampering they can get along with some useful information regarding pregnancy which probably increases chances of normal delivery as well.I think I can be a good brand ambassador for such a concept:)).What say friends?
