The Independently-owned mindbodysoul Aveda spa in South London has re-launched as a day spa for mothers and their babies.
Owner Vicky Stothard was inspired into the change after becoming a mum herself in the past year. She felt that there would be a demand for somewhere for mums to be able to take their babies and toddlers and to enjoy some "well deserved R&R".
The spa has been redesigned to be mum- and baby-friendly, with facilities including a relaxation area; a chalkboard wall for toddlers and older children; toys and books to entertain children; a decked herb garden; baby changing facilities; travel cots in treatment rooms on request; and room for buggies/prams in the treatment rooms.
With just two treatment rooms, Stothard is hoping to create an atmosphere where mums can feel safe and secure within "intimate surroundings".
She will continue the spa's existing partnerships with suppliers Aveda and SpaRitual.
