A babymoon is essentially the last hoorah before the diapers, crying and sleepless nights.
Your lives are about to be turned upside down. So, what better time than now to squeeze one last romantic trip in before your little bundle of joy arrives?
But choosing the perfect babymoon destination is slightly different than booking any other vacation.
We went ahead and did all the research on best babymoon destinations so you can just click, book and relax.
1. Paradise Island, Bahamas
If your ideal babymoon involves sand in your toes and a virgin pina colada in your hand, then the Bahamas is the place for you!
And, if you want to be pampered on a whole new level, book your stay at the Atlantis Resort. Here, a babymoon is started with a bathing ritual for the mother and father-to-be. This includes nurturing music for the baby, a nourishing milk bath and a wild lavender shower.
The mother-to-be also receives Japanese Camelia oil and rosewood essential oil. And for the father-to-be receives MusclEase active body concentrate to help relax before the baby arrives.
2. Scottsdale, Arizona
You might be wondering what’s so special about Arizona, but hear us out first. There is a resort in Arizona, The Westin Kierland Resort And Spa, that should be on everyone’s babymoon list.
They have a “Bundle Of Joy” babymoon package that knows exactly how to make any mommy-to-be feel extremely special. The package includes an organic skincare set, chocolate covered strawberries, an in-room movie of the couple’s choice, ice cream sundaes and a $25 gift card to the Kierland Common. For an extra cost, you can even get a couple’s massage and a 24-hour “Cravings Chef” service.
3. New York City, New York
If New York City has been on your travel bucket list for as long as you can remember, now is the time to go! Because your babymoon might be the last chance you get to take a trip to one of your favorite cities. Plus, you get an equal balance of the busy city and relaxing lakes and parks.
You can spend your babymoon with iconic sightseeing trips and Broadway shows while you eat some of the yummiest food along the way. Not to mention New York City has some of the best locations to take some baby bump photos.
4. Venice, Italy
Venice is one of the most charming and romantic cities in the world, making it one of the best destinations for a babymoon. Spend your time discovering waterway alleys, European architecture, quaint cafes and Italian museums.
A romantic gondola ride is also a Venice must-do and a picture-perfect way to celebrate the love between you, your partner and your baby. Plus, they have all the pizza a pregnant woman could ask for!
5. Maui, Hawaii
Because, let’s face it, who doesn’t want to take a trip to Hawaii at least once in their lifetime? The warm water, gorgeous sunsets and scenic landscapes are the perfect way to relax before your little one comes.
Swimming is a fantastic form of exercise for pregnancy, which gives you the perfect excuse to go snorkeling. And, with a plethora of tropical spas, you can’t leave the island without being pampered with a perfect prenatal massage. It’s such a perfect way to love yourself.
Hawaii provides a great balance for mothers-to-be to go on a little adventure and then sit back in the sun and relax.
Where Will You Go For Your Babymoon?
No matter what destination you choose for your babymoon, you’re sure to have a remarkable experience with your partner before your little bundle of joy arrives.
However, it’s important to note that long plane rides can be uncomfortable for pregnant women who are further along due to the need to use the restroom and stretch frequently. Because of this, we suggest that you take your babymoon early in your second trimester. That way your cute baby bump is showing just enough to where you won’t be uncomfortable.
