Some parents-to-be dream of the perfect babymoon. A vacation where they connect, unwind, and enjoy each other’s company before their newborn enters the world. Some couples plan a babymoon to get away from the stress of painting the nursery and assembling strollers and cribs, while others realize they need a dedicated time to spend together before their baby is born.
The best destination
Choose a location that appeals to both partners. You’ll want to relax and indulge on your time away, you’ll also use this opportunity as a chance to celebrate one another. Perhaps it’s a location you wouldn’t visit with children. Or maybe you want to stay close to him. The perfect babymoon destination depends on your level of comfort, your budget, and the length of your time away. No matter where you go, check with your doctor to get their thumbs up before making any major travel plans during your pregnancy.
The best time to go
For many women, the second trimester is the best time to schedule your babymoon vacation. Morning sickness is diminished, while your energy levels have risen. Additionally, you aren’t close enough to your due date to worry about delivering your baby away from home.
It’s a celebration
Some couples plan the perfect babymoon because they fear they will not be able to travel again once their newborn arrives. A babymoon is a celebration of a new chapter in your life. Your physical travels may be limited, but the adventure of parenthood awaits. And that is one of life’s greatest journeys.
