I am planning to use www.servemehere.com to book appointment with a mobile spa company coming to my house for massage, haircut, facials. It will save me time driving to the spa and I can breasfeed baby if needed in my house

would you use professionals services at your doorste? have you use www.servemehere.com?

I checked my area out of curiousity and there were no results. Assuming it was affordable, I would have to really do my research about the person coming to my house. I would definitely want to get some referrals from previous customers so I could talk to them. It is a neat idea though.

As a very experienced momma to 5 bios and 3 steps....is this really necessary?  I only ask because looking good and feeling good are all wonderful things but there are plenty of things that you can do for yourself.  Also remember that after having a baby your hormones go through many changes.  Many women loose hair, hair grows, skin gets oily, skin gets drier, etc.  

Do you plan on stopping in the middle of a massage to breastfeed?

You would probably get a lot more out of having mom, mil, hubby, etc. watching the baby while you go to a spa.  The whole reason for going to a spa is for the relaxation, right?

You can find mobile massage therapists, etc. on the web--it's not just that site. :o)

It can be worth it, especially if you'd have to pay for baby care. (Don't worry about cleaning up much beyond making space.)

And you don't necessarily have to stop to breastfeed (depending on what youre doing, of course.) I've done multiple post-partum massages with the baby breastfeeding on the table and it goes fine (usually best if mom is on her side--and try both the bottom and the top breast.)

As LeVar Burton used to say: "But you don't have to take my word for it."
