The babymoon—one last romantic vacation for two, before baby arrives. Sure, your counting the days until your due date, but trust us when we tell you that once you go from a family of two to a family of three, things will never be the same again. Not that that’s a bad thing, but those times alone with your partner are about to become slim to none. We suggest taking a babymoon to relax and enjoy each other’s company, because your routine is about to change in a big way. And just because you are far along in your pregnancy doesn’t mean that it’s too late. You can babymoon to a nearby beach or cabin and keep it simple. So, without further ado, here are our top 5 tips on how to create the perfect babymoon!

1. First and foremost, make sure you are located somewhere that has a nearby hospital and have a plan, just incase your little one decides to come early. If you’re further along in your pregnancy, try to keep travel time to a minimum.

2. If flying, check with the airline to see their policies on traveling while pregnant. Most airlines won’t let you fly once you reach a certain stage in your pregnancy, so do some research to know your options.

3. Plan within your budget. If you are fortunate enough to book two tickets to somewhere luxurious, more power to you, but for most of us funds are tight when planning and preparing for a child. You can easily babymoon without breaking the bank.

4. Choose a place that is appealing to both you and your partner. You want to really relax and unwind. Keep in mind the terrain and things like long walking distances and staircases. You don’t want to be on your feet and uncomfortable for long periods of time.

5. Reconnect! Get close, cuddle, have fun together, sleep in, order room service, go for a midnight swim, be romantic. Make the most of your babymoon with relaxing one-on-one activities.
