South Florida Hot Spots for Pregnant Moms
During your pregnancy you’re definitely going to want to check out a lot of hot spots in South Florida. And speaking of hot… South Florida is very hot! It’s a good idea to check out some of the beaches in South Florida. Walk on the pier, go down by the sand and enjoy the warm water. I personally love Ft. Lauderdale Beach and Lauderdale by the Sea. Remember to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen, you don’t want to burn your baby bump with the intense South Florida sun!
Another great idea to beat the heat is to stay indoors!!! And what better place to stay indoors than a day spa. I highly recommend checking out Belly Love Maternity Spa in the Coral Springs/ Margate area in South Florida. Get yourself pampered and feel relaxed in this one-of-a-kind Oasis for pregnant women. You can get a 3D ultrasound and a manicure and pedicure the same day. But definitely check out their prenatal massages because they are amazing. Stay for a facial and you’ll get that pregnancy glow all day long!
Once your Pampered and beautiful head over to dinner at one of my favorite places The Melting Pot in Coral Springs. It’s quiet and romantic and gives you and your partner a chance to talk quietly. Talk about baby names, how you’ll decorate the baby nursery, discuss hiring a doula or a baby nurse or anything else you’d like. After dinner is the best part… chocolate fondue! The dessert is my favorite part and will satisfy that pregnancy chocolate craving that most expectant moms have!
Shopping is a huge part of pregnancy!!! Shopping for baby items, maternity clothes and nursery items are a necessity. My top pick for shopping for babies in South Florida are Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and Target for your baby registry. There are other locations to shop for pregnancy but these are the most popular in the area of South Florida. There are many locations from Boca Raton to Pembroke Pines and everything in between and you can always shop online if you are on bed rest or just feeling tired. Sawgrass Mall in Sunrise, Florida is a great place to walk around and get exercise in the air conditioning and do some shopping as well. Make sure you stop frequently to rest and to stay hydrated.
Pregnancy is only 40 weeks so make sure you check out some of my favorites spots in South Florida before baby gets here. Also, take a childbirth class, breastfeeding class, interview doulas and baby nurses and spending time with friends and family as much as you can. These 40 weeks will fly by and your baby will be here before you know it! Enjoy every minute!
