Maternity Massage Gift Certificate

Pregnancy can take a toll on the body, and a prenatal massage is a heavenly treat for an expectant mom. Gift her a spa day where she can relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. If for any reason she does not feel comfortable getting a massage while pregnant she can always use it after! (because trust me, she will need a massage postpartum as well)
