Whether you are expecting your first child or your third, the anticipation leading up to the arrival of the newest member of your family can be a busy time, with preparations and adjustments in full swing. As a way to diffuse the stress and to spend some special one-on-one time with your partner, a new trend has recently taken off: the Babymoon! A Babymoon is a trip designed for expectant parents to relax and rejuvenate before the newest member of the family arrives. To eliminate the stress and bring you and your partner even closer together, a Babymoon is a great way to prepare for the birth of your child. Choosing the right Babymoon for you is important, and with a few quick tips you will be enjoying a relaxing vacation in no time!
One Day Getaway
The One Day Getaway Babymoon is a great option if you do not have a lot of free time, but still want to rejuvenate and relax with your partner. Although in all likelihood you will not be able to go to a tropical beach for the day, you can book a full day at a wonderful spa where you and your partner will be pampered. There are many upscale spas that specialize in pre-pregnancy treatments, such as special massages or belly facials. The maternity massages are relaxing and comfortable, as many spas use adjustable beds and add special cushions to ensure you are comfortable. These one day spa getaways are romantic as well, as they offer couples massages and treatments. Simply being able to relax and not worry about anything will bring you and your partner closer together.
The Extended Escape Babymoon is perfect for those couples who have several free days that they can use to sneak off on a special vacation. When choosing where to go, it is important to choose what is most relaxing to you. Whether that is going to a tropical paradise where you can relax at the beach or finding a luxurious hotel in the middle of your favorite city, there are plenty of Babymoon options to suit every couple’s tastes. It is truly about bonding with your partner and rejuvenating yourselves in preparation for the birth of your child.
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your Babymoon destination. If you will be flying or travelling for longer distances, consult with your doctor beforehand and make sure that there is good medical care at whichever destination you choose. Also, try to plan your Babymoon during the second trimester of your pregnancy, as doctors have recommended the time between eighteen and twenty-four weeks as being the safest time to travel.
Keep in mind is that while any relaxing trip as a couple is perfect for a Babymoon, many resorts offer packages designed specifically for an expectant couple. With pre-pregnancy massages for the expectant mother as well as spa services designed specifically for men, these resort package deals are a great option when looking for a Babymoon that will require little planning and truly provide relaxation.
If you are going to a beach destination spot, or even one where there is an inviting pool where you will be lounging. Shop for your maternity swimsuit well in advance so you won’t be stressed out trying to find one at your vacation destination when you find your pre-pregnancy bikini no longer fits. Also, not all local maternity stores carry maternity swimwear. If you do order online, order well in advance so you have chance to try on your suit and make sure you like it in case you want to order a different color or size. You want your vacation to be as stress free as possible, so have your bag packed with all essentials well in advance!
A Babymoon, whether one day or one week, is a great way to bond with your partner and prepare mentally and physically for the birth of your child. Such an exciting time in your life calls for celebration, and relaxing and pampering yourself with your spouse. From a spa visit to relaxing on the beach, there is the perfect Babymoon option for every couple. You will feel close, connected and refreshed, and ready for the newest addition to your family.
