Babymoons are one of the hottest trends among expectant parents. Essentially, it is one last kid-less hurrah before your little one arrives. Whether you go for relaxing or romantic, you won’t regret taking this vacation with your partner.
When to go on your Babymoon
When you’re pregnant there are many factors to consider when traveling. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists deems flying safe during healthy pregnancies. Generally your second trimester is considered the safest; however it is important to always talk to your OB before making any plans. You will want to have contingency plans should you have a medical emergency while away.
If flying is not your thing or your doctor does not recommend this method of travel, you can always drive to your Babymoon!
Ultimately, you have the most say in when you and your partner escape for your Babymoon. How your pregnancy is developing and the symptoms you experience will dictate timing, but many expectant moms find the second trimester is a great time get away. You’re over the morning sickness and although you’re sporting a bump, for many it’s manageable and not uncomfortable.
Where to go on your Babymoons
Minimizing travel time on your Babymoon is a must for many expectant moms. Long layovers or extensive car drives can turn any relaxing Babymoon into a stressful time. If you prefer to stay a little closer to home (and your OB), there are plenty of spots you and your partner can go to for your Babymoon!
Looking for something topical? Head down to Antigua; the sandy white beaches and crystal clear waters are sure to rejuvenate you and your partner. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path, check out Jumby Bay. Reachable only by boat (and no cars in sight), you’re sure to get lost in your Babymoon on this 300-acre private Caribbean Island. Jumby Bay is considered one of the most desireable and exclusive private retreats in the Caribbean.
