You’re about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. So, why not take a journey of your own to kick off the excitement to come? We’re talking about a babymoon and why we think you should definitely take one…

So, what is a babymoon? Well, it’s a honeymoon plus a baby of course! Whether you choose to jet set before or after your little one’s arrival is up to you, but most parents these days opt to sneak off for some alone time (baby in belly) to relax and reconnect before the adventure of birth and early postpartum life. If you can’t already tell, we are HUGE fans! So, in order to get you on board too, we are revealing our fave babymoon ideas and the best babymoon destinations for all kinds of mamas!

Expecting couple vacationing in Hawaii for their babymoon.

The Nervous Traveler

A little apprehensive about straying too far from your nest? We totally understand! Between bouts of morning sickness and fear that your water could break any second, it can be nerve wracking to even think about taking a trip of any kind, let alone a long flight across the globe. But, that doesn’t mean you need to avoid traveling altogether! We recommend planning ahead to pick just the right time (ideally during the second trimester when you’re feeling an energy boost) and heading to a safe place where you can suss out the kind of care you will get if you need it.

If you’re on the east coast, we suggest heading to the Bahamas where you can quickly trip back to the states as needed. If you’re on the west coast, perhaps a Hawaii babymoon helps you feel safe and without the worry of leaving the country, or enduring the headache of going through customs. Just be sure to do your research to understand these local communities and know how to respect their wishes during your stay.

The Jetsetter

So you want to get away?! We feel yah! Exploring the stunning islands of Maldives is our top choice if you’re looking for a truly relaxing and totally luxurious white sand getaway — beachfront villas and all! But, we’ll warn you, it’s going to be a loooong trip. We’re talking double digit hours in the air. For somewhere with the same level of gorgeous beach days, French Polynesia is a touch closer at under 9 hours from the west coast and 13 hours from the east coast. Not worried about the distance? Just a little bit further and you can be swimming in Fiji or trekking in breathtaking New Zealand!

The Romantic

For the moms that are looking to reconnect with their partner, we have the most iconic romantic babymoon destinations for you! For warm weather and relaxing spa days, Marrakech, Morocco is the ideal place to be. Walk along the beach in between tours of gorgeous gardens and historic architecture. Or, if you want to go classic, visit the city of love aka Paris, France. Spend a few days there then take off down south by train to Aix-en-Provence. If you’re set on flaunting your gorgeous bump, pack your fave bikinis and head to Costa Rica for that island paradise feeling. Go ahead and smooch by the waterfalls before your water breaks!

The Saver

Want to see a whole lot of green while saving a whole lot of it too? We have the best affordable babymoon destinations for you! For that western vibe you’ll want to head to Wyoming to visit Yellowstone National Park. For a forest flair, we recommend Olympic National Park in Washington State. The fairytale feeling will last you a lifetime! For a beachy getaway, take a roadtrip up or down the California coast. You can rent a van to keep all your essentials close by, or tuck into quaint, coastal BnBs.

To keep your trip on the east coast, we recommend a trip between North and South Carolina along the Blue Ridge Parkway from Shenandoah National Park to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Then, head to the lovely islands that line the coast. Craving warmth and vitamin D? Florida is a total favorite. Enjoy Palm Beach, then trip down to tour the Everglades, and finally take yourself all the way down to The Keys. It’s sure to be pure perfection!

The Solo or Girls Tripper

Whether you’re a single mom-to-be or you have a taste for independent adventure, there’s no better way to unwind and recharge for your journey ahead. This is your last chance for alone time after all! If that’s not your thing, make it a girls trip by bringing along a best friend or two. Whatever you choose, you shouldn’t have to worry about your safety. That’s why our top solo babymoon destination is Iceland which has some of the most jaw-dropping nature in the world and boasts one of the lowest crime rates too! Taking the girls along? Embrace your inner “Mama Mia” while wandering through the gorgeous Greek islands!

The Homebody

If you’d really rather stay close to home, we’ve got you! No need to forgo a little one-on-one time with you, boo, and the one in your womb. Take a week just for you and your partner and plan a romantic date every day. Whether it’s a picnic at the local park, a movie night, a night out at your fave restaurant, or a full fledged spa day it's all up to you. If you’re feeling adventurous, book a night at a luxurious hotel nearby! If you’re feeling wild, test the waters with a day trip somewhere that you love or have always wanted to go. Make a few memories that you can look forward to sharing with your baby one day too!

The New Mom

While it’s not the current babymoon trend, the term was originally invented to describe parents taking a trip to spend solo time with their newborn. If this feels like the right option for you, we recommend the sweeping views and unbeatable cuisine in the Tuscany region of Italy. Want some fun for your little one? South Korea is an excellent choice with the cutest kid-friendly cafes! Although, we’d choose a visit to Tokyo, Japan to immerse yourself in incredible culture and an unforgettable welcome back to sushi!
