HerCanberra Team

Take some time to relax and spoil yourself before the arrival of your baby with an indulgent afternoon of pampering, eating and film.

12.30pm LUNCH AT A.BAKER

Abaker4064

Start your afternoon of indulgence with lunch at A.Baker. There’s an emphasis on fresh and local produce here, and plenty
 of options, whether you’re keen for something just to nibble on 
or something more substantial. The sandwiches, pasta and salads change daily so there’s always something new to discover. Sit outside in the courtyard and soak up the sunshine and ambience.

2pm MOTHER-TO-BE MASSAGE AND PEDI AT SOMA DAY SPA

Soma day spa

Soma is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and connected by a corridor to the La Bimbi 
hair salon downstairs, should you decide to go the full nine yards and get a head-to-toe service.

This may be the last time you have a few hours to yourself for some time, so make the most 
of it with a tried and tested safe pregnancy massage. Soma adapt their techniques to each stage of pregnancy and use specialised positioning on the Elemis beanbag to ensure comfort and relieve tension in the back and alleviate swelling in the hands and feet. Finish with a pedicure to nurture those tired feet you haven’t seen for a while.
