Take a Babymoon! 20 Dreamy Vacation Ideas

Strengthen your bond (and take a well-deserved break!) before Baby arrives at one of these dreamy babymoon vacation spots for every type of traveler and budget.

Before you know it, a vacation will involve an army’s worth of planning and packing. But in your second trimester, when morning sickness is usually over and your bump isn't all that big, you can still throw a swimsuit in a bag and take a dreamy getaway. Stoking the flames of your love with a relaxing babymoon has real long-term relationship benefits, says Sabitha Pillai-Friedman, Ph.D., a couple’s therapist and assistant professor of human sexuality at Widener University in Chester, Penn. “Transitioning to parenthood can be stressful, but dedicating a vacation to reconnecting can help you be playful with each other again,” she says. Before you book, check with your doctor: the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists discourages air travel after 36 weeks and some docs may ground you earlier. And make a pledge with your partner to try to avoid argument triggers like money or family issues until you’re back home, Pillai-Friedman says. Read on for destinations that will have you scrolling through the Kayak app, pronto.
