Babymoons are a hot growing trend in travel right now - over 60% of parents-to-be report planning a pre-baby getaway. And why not? It's a perfect chance to sneak away and enjoy some quality time relaxing before your bundle of joy arrives.
Here's everything you need to know to plan your stress-free babymoon, in 3 easy steps!
1. When to go?
TIMING IS EVERYTHING.
It's best to plan to babymoon in your second trimester, between 14 and 28 weeks, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. This seems to be the sweet spot between the morning sickness of the first trimester and the utter exhaustion of being in your third trimester! During the second trimester, your energy should return and you'll be up for an adventure.
2. Where to go?
DESTINATIONS THAT OFFER COMFORT AND SAFETY.
There's no rule that your babymoon has to be boring! Whether you're dreaming of walking on the beach or exploring historic cities, the options are pretty endless. One major thing to keep in mind though: you'll want to make sure you're in a destination that has easy access to medical care if needed. Save that remote jungle trek for after your babe is here.

3. Be Prepared
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY
It's not fun to think about, but having a plan in place for emergencies is essential for any trip, but especially a babymoon. First, talk with your healthcare provider about all travel plans. Topics to bring up during your discussion include:
foods to be avoided
activities to avoid
This is also a good time to check your health insurance policy to see if you’re covered at your destination. If it does not, you'll be able to purchase a travel insurance policy from your advisor that will fit your needs perfectly.
