Sacramento, CA — March 5, 2006 - Brown Bag Botanicals, a leading provider of wellness industry and maternity bodycare products, today announced the launch of it’s new service division The Belly Beautiful; all-inclusive, five day retreats exclusively catered to pregnant couples, hosted at the world renowned Canyon Ranch Resort in Tuscon, AZ. This is the first vacation retreat of its kind offered to the pregnancy market.

“The Belly Beautiful was an evolution of sorts”, explains Christine Trice, founder and president of Brown Bag Botanicals. “The concept is to celebrate the experience of pregnancy, to connect with its primal beauty.” She adds,” As my clients have expressed over the years, and as I experienced first hand, there is a need to bridge the gap where traditional prenatal care falls short. The Belly Beautiful provides a platform to accomplish just that.” Christine also warns,” This is not a childbirth prep class, but you may want to rethink your birth plan after you attend this retreat. Your level of self awareness, understanding of your body and connection with your partner is bound to be impacted by your experience.”

The Belly Beautiful is an ideal vacation destination for expectant parents; a place for them to connect, discover and celebrate pregnancy, their unborn child and each other. This retreat is designed to become a natural extension of a woman’s existing prenatal care and a compliment to other pregnancy and birthing classes, with the added value of a six-star destination spa resort, and has earned the support and endorsement of many OBGYN practices and prenatal providers across the country.
