Taking a babymoon is a fairly new tradition — but it’s almost as popular as a honeymoon now! It makes sense: you are super pregnant, so why not pamper yourself? Not to mention, babymoons can also offer some one-on-one time with your significant other before your newborn arrives (you may want to use this time to rest, because you won’t get a lot of that soon!).
Many celebrity moms-to-be have hopped on the trend, too. One of the most common places for these celebrity babymoons are tropical locations, preferably with a beach, some virgin margaritas, and a masseuse who takes pregnant clients! However, you can go on a babymoon wherever suits your fancy. As long as there are A) no other kids invited and B) you take plenty of bump pics while you’re there!
Even the royals have gotten in on this trend, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle going on a babymoon before their son, Archie, was born, and Kate Middleton and Prince William enjoyed a babymoon in the Caribbean.
If you are debating on going on a babymoon before your little one is born, consider this your clue to take the trip. You’ll likely want to go in your second trimester, when chances are you’re past morning sickness — but not quite in the most uncomfortable part yet. Then, just try to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet before your baby is born. You deserve it!
