Enjoying holidays 'despite' being pregnant
A pregnancy always brings change – physical and emotional. A holiday is the perfect time for dealing with this new stage of one’s life, to examine one’s wishes and views and to become aware of the new situation. Peace. Time for taking deep breaths. The power of nature. All this helps to support you during your pregnancy. By the way: Gentle sports have shown to be effective preparation for birth. Walks in the fresh air and swimming have always been recommended by gynaecologists and midwives.
A perfect hotel for pregnant women
If you come to Fiss, there is one thing you can be sure of: We look after our guests. This maxim of the Hotel Laurentius does not only apply when it comes to the cleanliness of our rooms or the offer for parents and child, but in particular also when it comes to food. Our kitchen team knows what kind of food is best for pregnant women. We also know about food intolerances and allergies. Our chef is happy to take the time to consider your requests. You need not worry and can enjoy the Laurentius pamper board to the full.
