Babymoon—A unique holiday taken by parents-to-be before their baby is born. Becoming a parent can be stressful and exciting at the same time. Many couples understand that after the birth of their child, a vacation with just the two of them may not happen for a while.
Going on a babymoon may be more challenging for couples with newborns. Why? Because separation anxiety in the first few years of their child’s life is real for many parents, and for the first six to seven months, a baby doesn’t realize that they are their own person outside of their mother. Relationship experts suggest babymoons should happen pre-baby as it could be the last time you will experience uninterrupted quality time doing the things you love together.
Interested in planning your own babymoon? Here are a few destination ideas to get you started!
The Best Time to Baby Moon:
Babymoon on the Weekend- Your babymoon doesn’t have to be lengthy; a three-day getaway is more than enough for you and your significant other to get your romance on.
Babymoon in the summer:
Beautiful places such as Cannon Beach, Oregon, with breathtaking coastal mountain views and extravagant oceanfront resorts, or if you vibe more with the midwest Mackinac Island, MI, may be the spot for you. Mackinac has fudge shops, stunning architecture, and romantic horse and carriage rides that will surely make for a memorable babymoon.
Babymoon in the winter:
Do you love the snow and brisk weather? Renting a romantic cabin suite at The Cedar Lodge in Wisconsin Dells, WI, in December, January or February is a winter wonderland treat. The suites have whirlpools and fireplaces that would set the mood for this memorable trip. If you love the east coast, The Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY, may be just what you and your partner are looking for. This Victorian castle is home to an award-winning spa and is surrounded by 40,000 acres of majestic forest. Nightly entertainment, endless activities, holistic wellness, and three hot meals a day sound like a great place to spend quality time with your partner before adding to your family.
Things to Keep in Mind:
Remember, soon-to-be moms, air travel is not recommended once you hit the 36 weeks mark, so planning your babymoon in the first or second trimester is ideal.
