A babymoon lets couples relax and unwind before the stress of a new baby. If you are wondering where to go for your trip, consider these popular destinations.
Are you thinking of taking a babymoon, or a trip before the arrival of your baby? Sometimes finding the right location can be a challenge. Here are some ideas that can get your creative juices flowing.
If the expectant mom is comfortable in a bathing suit, consider booking a trip to the beach. This location will help inspire intimate thoughts as the two of you reconnect. Strolling hand in hand along the beach, lounging near the lapping water, and sipping (non-alcoholic) cocktails by a resort pool are both relaxing and romantic. Remember to pack the sunscreen, though, as pregnancy hormones increase sun sensitivity.
Cities can work well for a babymoon as well. Explore the museums and cultural scene in your favorite city, and this can even help you to stay a little closer to home. If you will be walking a lot, which is common in cities, make sure the expectant mom invests in quality walking shoes. Choose a high quality with a beautiful view to the city lights to make your vacation even more memorable, and be sure to book a meal at a fancy city restaurant as well.
Cruises are a nice idea for a babymoon because they are all-inclusive, for the most part. Your meals, on-board entertainment, and lodging are all included in the price of the cruise. These also allow you to see tropical islands or Alaskan mountains without as much travel hassle. One potential problem for expectant moms on a cruise is seasickness, so talk to your doctor about coping ideas or medications you can use to help with this. If your cruise is international, make sure you find out about the safety of your intended destination.
No matter where it is, an all-inclusive resort is a good idea for a babymoon. It takes much of the stress off of planning the trip, because meals, entertainment, and lodging are all included. Before booking an all-inclusive resort, check about what really is included. Sometimes your entertainment, if it is off-site, will cost extra, so you will need to budget accordingly. Choose an all-inclusive in an area you are interested in seeing, or consider one close to home to give you the feeling of being on vacation without the stress of extensive travel.
A massage feels heavenly to many expectant moms, making a spa resort another workable option for a babymoon, as it promotes relaxation, one of the primary ingredients for these trips. If you opt for this option, contact the spa prior to your arrival to make sure they will do the treatments you are considering on expectant moms. Also, make sure your doctor approves them. Some types of massage can be dangerous for expectant moms. Don’t forget to check out the accommodations to ensure they will be comfortable for you as you enjoy the spa services. Remember, this trip is about reconnecting with each other, so consider your interests and need for relaxation, and you will easily find the right location for your trip.
