10 Best Travel Destinations To Go For Babymoon

A holiday during pregnancy brings many benefits to the couple and the mom. Apart from being the window when the couple are traveling on their own (without kids!), it is also a time to relax before the stress of caring for a newborn baby. It is also a time to strengthen the marriage especially when the couple has to face many challenges of parenting together. Here are ten favourite babymoon travel destinations to consider!

Beach vacations

Beach vacations are ideal for those who just want to relax and get out of the city. The sea, beach, fresh air and less crowd offers a time for the to-be mom and the couple to rejuvenate and slow down. After all, it is very difficult to be hurried when you’re on the beach.

#1 Cebu Island, Philippines

Cebu Island has many white sandy beaches on a few popular island destinations. Filled with breath-taking views, it is no doubt the best place to unwind and absorb the positive energy.

Traveling Tips for Babymoon Vacations

There are five tips for pregnant women traveling:

#1 Window to Travel

As most airlines and cruise liners set limits on when a pregnant woman can travel with them, and by and large, second trimester is the best time to travel. Be sure to check the restrictions and whether certificate from your doctor is required. Do not opt for a cruise if you feel nauseous during your pregnancy.

#2 Inform your Doctor

Be sure to inform your doctor, and check on whether he/she consider it safe for you to take your trip. Your doctor may want to keep you closer to home, or have your trip kept to a certain number of days. Also check on required vaccinations and whether taking those vaccinations are appropriate for you.

#3 Avoid Long Sitting Time

Pregnant women are at higher risk of deep vein thrombosis – therefore you should get up and walk, or get out of the car for frequent stops. Stay hydrated and if in doubt, travel in luxury (business class for long flights) or choose a shorter trip.

#4 Check out Medical Facilities

It is worthwhile checking medical facilities at where you intend to go and those located close to your hotels.

#5 Aim for Relaxation

While everyone is different, the trip for pregnant women should be relaxing rather than stressful, or too physically exhausting. A benefit of travel this time is to re-connect and draw closer to your spouse, and a stressful itinerary may just lead you to being even more exhausted upon return.
