6 Places for Your Pre-Baby Break

The Best Babymoon Escapes:

6 Places for Your Pre-Baby Break

It’s trendy these days for expectant parents to escape on a pre-baby break. A babymoon can give you precious time together, and the pampering you deserve! Which type of babymoon is right for you? Where’s the best place to go? Should you spend it locally or abroad?

There's no reason not to enjoy a babymoon abroad, since it’ll not be quite as easy once baby arrives. However, ensure that you’re at a stage of your pregnancy that doesn't bar you from international travel. This varies according to airline, but most will require you to complete your travel somewhere between weeks 32 and 35. That said, not every couple has the energy or resources to splurge on a foreign holiday. That’s ok as there are still lots of good local options to choose from!

Wherever you choose to go, please consult your doctor to ensure that you are able to travel without risk to yourself and the little one in your womb. If you intend to go abroad, you will need to get a letter from the doctor permitting you to fly. Do also discuss vaccinations or other special precautions needed for your chosen destination.

Here’s our pick of 6 of the best babymoon escapes around:

BABYMOONS FOR NATURE LOVERS

Nature babymoon benefits: Pregnancy can sometimes inspire a deeper appreciation for nature. Think of how wonderful it’ll be to enjoy long walks in the great wide open, or to swim somewhere bordered by natural beauty. The sounds of the nature can be soothing and water can provide natural buoyancy to support your growing bump, helping to ease pregnancy aches and pains. Basking in fresh air and sunshine encourages the production of vitamin D, leaving you feeling uplifted and rejuvenated.

Nature babymoon bewares: Your pregnant skin is particularly sensitive to sun, so do slater on enough sunscreen. Stay hydrated with lots of water, wear a hat and avoid too much direct sunlight or you may get dizzy and lightheaded. Put on natural insect repellant to keep the mosquitoes away.
