Spa Caters to Pregnant Women
The Bei Bella Pregnancy Spa opened in Scottsdale, Ariz., Oct. 1, with the intent to give expectant and new mothers a place to not only be pampered, but educated as well.
The 2,300 square foot facility was designed to complement programs offered by local hospitals to help women maintain their physical and mental health both before and after giving birth. Sisters Danielle Price Catalfio, owner of Studiyo of Scottsdale, and Jaie J. Tenney saw the void that a spa like this could fill and partnered with some private investors to open the new spa.
The initial membership fee is $365 and customers also must sign up for one of three monthly packages ranging in cost from $69 to $99. The spa offers services such as yoga, massage, fitness, pilates and spin classes as well as seminars on topics such as cord blood collection, postpartum depression and post-natal physical therapy. The spa also will feature a retail boutique featuring a line of maternity clothes designed by Catalfio. The spa includes an 800 square foot yoga studio with surround sound, a reading space called the "womb room" stocked with massage chairs, iPods and books.
Bei Bella will have five instructors and the spa also has built relationships with Desert Jewel Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pre-natal Peek of Maricopa, Active Lifestyle Medical and the Lamar Everyday Spa to share services and referrals. The spa also is developing a mentoring program for women from 11 to 17 in an effort to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy.
