Before you start packing for your babymoon there are some hard truths to digest first: For a very long time to come, this trip is probably going to be your last where you will be the sole focus of your partner, the last trip where both of you will be able to give each other 100% of your attention and most importantly the last trip before you start a new era of your life. Keeping that in mind you want this ‘babymoon’ to absolutely rock both of your worlds and be an experience of a lifetime. You don’t want such an experience to be spoiled by anything as trivial as packing the wrong things for your vacation.
Keeping that in mind here are a few tips to pack for a memorable ‘babymoon’ ever:
Choose a relaxing destination and even more relaxing way to get there-
There are vacations that are purely adventure-seeking and exploring the local attractions and then there are vacations where you go for rest and relaxation. A babymoon should be somewhere the couple can relax and enjoy the pleasure of each other’s company; this isn’t really the time to start marking things off your bucket list. Choosing a relaxing destination isn’t enough; reaching that destination shouldn’t be a strenuous effort, an ideal babymoon won’t require you to travel halfway around the world and have multiple layovers.
Make a comprehensive list of sundry items you need
Good organizational skills will prevent you from a lot of misery and money on your vacation. Remember babymoon is a trip to relax and enjoy, don’t spoil your vacation fun because of trivial things. Make a list of everything you need from Sunscreen to insect repellents to any prenatal vitamins, and medication you regularly take.
Choose Sensible clothes according to your destination
Pregnant women should choose loose-fitting and light clothing that doesn’t put too much pressure on the body, pregnant women are also more vulnerable to temperature fluctuations and blood circulation problems. Multiple layers for cold destinations and light, and easy to remove clothing for hot destinations. You should prefer comfortable shoes as your feet may swell up, compression socks or stockings also help maintain blood flow in your feet.
Pack light for maximum enjoyment
While packing that extra pair of shoes and that expensive moisturizer is important in its own right. Ensure that you pack your luggage lightly in order to truly enjoy a care free babymoon and not get bogged down trying to move heavy suitcases from one place to another.
Documents related to your medical insurance and travel insurance, if you buy any travel insurance, emergency contact details, documents related to your pregnancy, and a letter from your doctor permitting you to travel by air. If your destination requires you to carry any specific documents like vaccine registrations, your medical history regarding a particular disease ensures that you carry them. Spending a few hours planning and preparing for your babymoon will give you years of excellent memories.

Planning a vacation during your pregnancy is known as a babymoon. No doubt it’ll remind you of some good old days of your honeymoon but this time you are carrying a baby in your womb. You and your partner know very well that when the baby will arrive, you both will not get much time to spend with each other and that’s when you plan a babymoon. Couples across the globe are taking babymoon holidays just to relax and enjoy the beautiful phase of pregnancy. No doubt your prenatal checkups and screening tests must be giving you a tough time but who is stopping you to take a break from it. All you need is a nod from your gynecologist and then you are all set to go. Keeping in mind your pregnancy symptoms, reduced mobility, and general safety you must prepare for a babymoon experience. Below mentioned are some pointers that you should keep in mind to avoid any risk during your babymoon:
Your second trimester is considered one of the best phases for a babymoon. You can comfortably travel and hopefully, your nausea is a distant memory now. Doctors advise that it’s best to plan before the third trimester because in your first trimester you feel more uncomfortable and tired.
Before you get excited about that long-awaited holiday you must choose a destination that is suitable for your pregnancy. Avoid remote areas, desserts, and cruise because that would make medical assistance difficult at times. If you are planning to travel overseas then you must speak to your doctor about the necessary vaccines. Check out for medical facilities when you are researching for locations and get in touch with a nearby hospital and make sure it’s within the reach.
Minimize your travel time as traveling during pregnancy can bring you a new set of hurdles. If you are carrying multiples or the doctor has already told you that your pregnancy is at high risk then don’t get disappointed if your doctor doesn’t allow you to fly overseas. If your pregnancy is normal then you must check with the airline staff because some airlines have various restrictions regarding domestic and international travel. You must opt for a non-stop flight and consider landing places that have short flight times. Avoid traveling to areas that have a high risk of certain diseases because that can result in miscarriage, preterm labor, or even stillbirth.
Be extra cautious about your belly. Any vacations that involve adventure activities like trekking, camel safaris, white water rafting, etc. should be strictly avoided. If you are traveling by car then you must avoid wearing your seatbelt directly over your belly as that helps in preventing the exerted pressure. You must keep your legs straight because that lessens the risk of blood clots. Keep your blood pumping by moving around after every one hour and take enough breaks to empty your bladder (pee-time).
You can keep it simple and relaxing by checking out several attractions of your preferred destination for instance- a beautiful park, visiting a museum or gallery, get a soothing couple’s massage and make a reservation at a restaurant whose ratings and reviews are on a higher side.
Hope all your doubts are cleared. All the best for your Babymoon Vacation.
