We want to ensure you’re maximising your Privilee Memberships and thought there would be no better way than some insights and tips from Privilee HQ! In this guide Lucy, who is currently expecting her first baby has shared her top tips on Privilee’ing whilst pregnant.
My advice to expectant mums using Privilee…
- Start the day with breakfast
I like to eat a well balanced and nutritious diet anyway, but now even more so. My husband and I love to start our Privilee beach days by treating ourselves to a hotel breakfast (who doesn’t!). There is so much variety which is necessary when you’re eating for two, plus you feel like you're on holiday! Top tip- Privilee Members get 2for1 breakfast at Mezzerie at Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah!!
- Choose an easy accessible location!
Being pregnant in the height of summer means I choose where to Privilee based on convenience - it’s definitely not ideal to be walking far to get to a sunbed in 40+ degrees! Locations I love that are just a short walk to the pool are; Sofitel The Obelisk, RIVA and InterContinental Festival City.
- Make the most of in-pool loungers
Without a doubt, this is the best way to stay cool, relaxing on sunbeds in the pool!! My personal faves with these beds are InterContinental Dubai Marina, Kempinski Hotel The Palm, Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek and W Dubai The Palm. You can find me lounging there with a book on most Fridays!
- Keep active
I absolutely LOVE to keep fit and have stayed active throughout my pregnancy - thanks to Privilee! During the work week, I make sure to use our standing desks throughout the day. Over the weekends, I’m keeping the intensity low and have been going to yoga and stretching classes. The classes at SEVEN, Fly High Fitness and Zabeel House have been fantastic.
- End the day with a prenatal massage
I can’t recommend this enough! We get 15% off treatments at The Spa at Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah and I’ve loved treating myself to the 60-minute ‘Mum To Be’ Massage. The Spa is stunning and the team here are just amazing - the massage always leaves me feeling so relaxed.
