Top 20 Babymoon Destinations Around the World

In recent years, “babymoons,” which simply means a vacation that takes place in the months before having your first baby, have become somewhat of a trend. Any experienced mom will tell you that getting as much relaxation and rest before the big day is essential. A babymoon offers that chance, and it’s become so popular that there are even some resorts around the world that offer special babymoon packages that cater to moms-to-be.

If you’re concerned about flying, while the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says that flying is safe during healthy pregnancies, it’s always a good idea to speak with your doctor first. Among these destinations, you’ll find fabulous exotic places as well as many that are closer to home for those that would rather not hop on a flight.

Disclaimer: It is always best to discuss your specific travel plans with your doctor prior to your journey.
