Lying on my back for a facial

I had a treatment on Saturday (26 weeks) and they gave me a couple of pillows to raise my head so I was comfortable. Might be worth checking beforehand that it's suitable for pregancy as some oils aren't. Enjoy it!

I did this at 26 weeks. They put a pillow under my knees so I could raise my legs a bit and they were able to raise the table I was lying on so that I was kind of sitting up a bit. Very comfy and absolutely fine.

I'm 37 weeks and laid on my back for lash extensions last week, it took 2 hours and just put a pillow under my shoulders. Was fine. Just listen to your body, it'll soon tell you if you're putting too much pressure on your vena cava.

Hi Deja
I've had treatments where you'd usually be flat in your back. Get them to raise the bed a bit so your head's raised & put a pillow or rolled up towel under your knees & your lower back

Hi ladies
Please let me m ow what you think. I'd like to book a spa day for DH and I on our anniversary, but this comes with an hour facial, and as I'll be 28 weeks by then, I worry about lying flat on my back for that long and feeling faint.
Anyone had a long facial in the 2nd/3rd trimester?
