Blissful pampering treatments during pregnancy
Kate Middleton has announced her pregnancy, after being admitted to hospital due to an acute morning sickness. As her condition improved, she was discharged from the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone, London to return home for a period of rest. She even managed to smile for the cameras before heading back to St. James' Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant, despite her recent health problems. Pregnancy can really take the toll on the body, because of hormonal changes that affect metabolism as well as the mood. Indulging in few beauty therapies and treatments could help any mum to be to feel as gorgeous as Kate. Take inspiration from our favourite pampering experiences.
