Have you heard of a babymoon? It’s the latest holiday trend and really, it makes a lot of sense. If you’re having a baby soon, or planning to start a family, then you should definitely consider a babymoon.
So what exactly is it?
Bearing many similarities to a honeymoon, the babymoon is slightly different, and perhaps, slightly more special as it is the trip you and your spouse take BEFORE this big, new chapter of your life begins.
Bringing a new life into the world is a wonderful experience, and parenthood brings huge joy, a ton of amazing moments and many benefits. At the same time though, it comes with a lot of hard work, exhaustion, and the constant need to give these little people you have created a whole lot of attention, time and love. While having kids is rewarding, it can also be incredibly tough, and your life will be very different for quite some time to come.
The babymoon is your opportunity to have that last holiday as a couple, to relax and unwind, to muster the strength and energy together that you will need for when your little one arrives, and the chance to create some great memories with your partner as a twosome. It is your time to focus on each other and do the things you enjoy doing which may be more difficult once you have children; hours by the pool sunbathing, dining out, leisurely evening strolls, or perhaps even a spa treatment. This is the time for you and your loved one to treat yourselves and appreciate this quality time and special moments together.
How to plan your babymoon
Timing is everything with a babymoon. You want to avoid those early months of morning sickness, but you don’t want to leave it so late that you might go into labour while you’re away. The second trimester is a great time to truly enjoy a babymoon. If you have any concerns, it’s a good idea to check with your doctor and get the go ahead for your trip, particularly if you’re planning on travelling by plane. You’ll also need to ensure that your travel insurance covers you for flying while pregnant. Some insurance policies will stipulate that you cannot fly close to your due date, so that’s something to look out for.
You’ll want to choose a location that is perfect for you both. Somewhere beautiful and relaxing, with enough to see and do, but also with plenty of opportunities to just chill out and take it easy.
