Your skin is a mess. Your memory’s gone. But none of that will matter when you hold your baby in your arms.
Best Face Forward
Banish skin suckiness with Belli’s motherhood line (Spa Scotta, 4915 25th Avenue Northeast, suite 103w; 206-522-5800). It’s rigorously tested and guaranteed free of teratogens you want to avoid while pregnant. Postpartum, the Eye Brightening Cream is pure magic.
Been There, Done That
Second time around and suffering from momnesia? Sign up for the Better Birth Refresher Course (Great Starts, 2517 Eastlake Avenue East; 206-789-0883). The class covers everything from labor’s stages to the all-important epidural.
Short of a live-in Pilates trainer, you don’t know how you’ll regain your shape after delivery. To help things along, call Sarah Furtek for an Arvigo massage (Ruby Moon Wellness, Eden Healing Arts Center, 4208 Leary Way Northwest; 206-356-1291). The ancient Mayan technique gently coaxes organs back where they belong.
So you can get back into your jeans.
