I wouldn't recommend a paraffin wax or any hot treatment to a pregnant woman because of the high/low blood pressure. Pregnant women retain fluids and swell on their hands and feet so ... I would offer a second treatment such as a facial decollete massage. That way at least she will get a treatment. Hope this is helpful

it is not recommended to give a paraffin wax or any heat treatments such as a spa\sauna\bodywraps\aromatherapy massage to a pregnant woman because of the high/low blood pressure & they can overheat & dehydrate(not good for baby either as they can't get rid off heat except thru mum).
usually this is in some cases during the first 3 months but its best to avoid altogether till after childbirth.. a nice relaxing facial is offered as a second treatment but use natural organic products and i was told that you have to avoid parabens and other additives..hth
