Romance and relaxation: what could sound better to a couple? How about a baby on the way?
A Babymoon is that last vacation before a new baby joins the family. It’s a time for a couple to relax and reconnect before lack of sleep and midnight feedings take over. In fact, many hotels and resorts are now catering to this special group of travelers by offering “Babymoon packages” and special pre-natal massages and treats for expectant mothers.
Statistically, more babies are born between September and November than any other months, which makes summer the perfect time for parents-to-be to take a Babymoon!
Whether a couple is welcoming their first or fifth child, a romantic getaway may be just what they need! Where should expectant parents go for this memorable trip? Some place fabulous! After all, it may be a while before they travel sans diapers and bottles.
