Babymoons have drastically risen in popularity in recent times among expectant mums. They’re the perfect excuse to spend some time away with just you and your partner before your little one makes their arrival into the world.
A fresh take on a honeymoon, babymoons are a time to get away from the hustle and bustle of planning your baby’s arrival and spending some quality time alone or with your other half.
Whether you plan on going on a babymoon close to home or fancy going abroad, there are so many reasons why they’re a great idea. If you need convincing on why you should have a babymoon, have a look at our list below and we're sure you'll be booking your trip in no time at all.
Every mum deserves some pampering and many don't have the time once their little one arrives. Life with a newborn can be hectic so taking the time to pamper yourself now with sun-soaked naps, pregnancy-friendly massages and a dip in the pool will make future you very grateful. Who know when you'll get a chance like this again.
It’s so important to spend quality time with yourself and with your partner. Allowing yourself to take time to be alone is important because soon you’ll have a baby that will constantly need your attention. Also making sure you and your partner get some time alone together will help to strengthen your relationship. Once the baby is here, it can be harder to find time for just the two of you.
Rest & relaxation
Being a mum is a tiring job and carrying your little one for nine months is no joke. You’re tired, uncomfortable and probably not feeling like yourself, so having some time to relax by the pool with a good book or rest in a quiet cabin somewhere beautiful is a great way to take time for yourself properly. Decorating a nursery, building the cot and washing all of your little one’s outfits can wait while you relax before the sleepless nights start.
If not now, when?
It’s unlikely you’ll get a chance like this again to organise a trip wherever you want without having to worry about the place being child-friendly or buggy-accessible. Of course when your little one is older you can enjoy family trips, but a couple's getaway may not be on the cards for a while once your bundle of joy arrives.
You deserve it
You’re about to bring a life into this world and take care of this child for years to come. You're doing one of the hardest things a woman can do so you deserve a treat in the sun as a reward for the hard work that’s about to come.
