Over the past few years a new phenomenon has emerged; the babymoon. Much like its namesake the honeymoon, a babymoon is a chance for a couple to escape, relax and take a break with one another, however this time, there’s a baby on board! It’s often seen as a couple’s last chance to really enjoy a romantic holiday together, before the chaos that accompanies kids takes over.
Travelling whilst pregnant: top tips to make your babymoon as perfect as possible
Travelling whilst pregnant can be a little overwhelming however, especially if you’re a first time mum, so here’s some top tips on how to avoid the stresses and really make the most of your time away.
1. Pack Properly
Planning your packing list is probably one of the easiest ways to mitigate stress both ahead of your holiday and whilst you’re away. When pregnant, you may find your usual ‘chuck every summer dress you’ve ever owned into a suitcase three hours before you fly’ tactic might not work quite as well as usual.
Start by thinking about the new things that you’ve started using on a daily basis since you’ve been expecting. Things like pregnancy vitamins or your Mama Mio Tummy Rub Butter may not have featured on packing lists gone by, but this time round you could be lost without them!
Then think about what you’re going to be doing whilst your away. Hikes planned? Comfy shoes to ensure those already hard-working legs are catered for. Swimming? Maternity swimsuit that accommodates for your ever growing bump. Spend a little extra time than usual planning your packing and we promise it will help bring a little calm to a hectic process.
