Whether you’re looking for one last relaxing and pampering vacation pre-baby or just want to celebrate the birth of your upcoming child, babymoons are in full effect these days. Baby Moons are designed for ultimate last hurrah for parents-to-be. You can drive to a close destination for a weekend or fly to a tropical island to reconnect as a couple before entering or re-entering parenthood.
Why do people take babymoons?
New moms and dads are taking full advantage of the days that go on without noisy, long car rides with kids fighting and sippy cups and breast pumps taking up the majority of your suitcase space.
Things to remember on your babymoon adventure:
The point is to rest. Avoid long travel and layovers.
Be sure to consult with your OB GYN if you are planning to travel aboard. Double check our timing and precautions. Typically flying is ok until the 36th week.
Consult with a travel agency to avoid extra stress. Remember the ultimate goal of your baby moon.
Check with the airline for any travel restrictions.
While packing be sure to bring information for the nearest medical center and the contact information for your OBG GYN.
Consider purchasing trip insurance in case you may have to cancel due to unforeseen issues that may arrive.
