Listen up, mamas! It’s time to start taking self-care seriously, and when better time to start, than Mother’s Day.
With the pressures of raising a family, returning to a busy career and navigating your way through motherhood, it’s normal to find that you’ve neglected your own self-care needs. But wait, there’s good news! Now, it’s easier than ever to carve out a little you time with Motherly Needs, the new luxury concierge service for London mamas.
Motherly Needs has an online booking system that cleverly connects mothers to professionally vetted and trained experts and therapists. You can choose from a whole host of top-notch prenatal and postnatal services, including facials, massages, Mummy MOT Hypnobirthing and Pilates right through to Life and Career Coaching for mothers. We think that’s pretty awesome.
And the best bit: every service available is to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. Yep, that’s right – all you have to do is find the time to treat yourself to some much overdue pampering, without even leaving the house! Sounds good to us.
