Planning a Babymoon? Check Out Our Favorite Pregnancy-Friendly Destinations!
If you’re planning to have that one last special trip before your little bundle of joy officially comes into the world, you want to make sure that wherever you go, it is a perfect place to travel to while pregnant. This is an amazing opportunity to reconnect and spend some quality time with your partner before your next vacation involves an intense amount of planning, stocked up diaper bags and your hands constantly full with a newborn or toddler. No matter what trimester you’re in, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten places to travel to while pregnant so that your babymoon can be as blissful and fun as possible!
It is important to note that most doctors will discourage air travel after 36 weeks and some may recommend that you do not fly even earlier than that. The preferred time to make your getaway will most likely be during your second trimester when all of that morning sickness has passed but your bump is still small enough that you’ll be much more comfortable to travel and enjoy your vacation. Regardless of when or where you decide to take your babymoon, use this time to avoid any arguments or stress in your life back home. This is an incredible opportunity to just enjoy all of that love and excitement between you, your partner and your little one on the way!
