A Babymoon is a Great Way to Combine Prenatal Travel & Relaxation
By: Greg Mattson, ERV Editor - Updated: Aug 18, 2017
What is a Babymoon? It's a romantic getaway for expectant couples (it can also refer to a getaway for a couple and their newborn).
Babymoon vacations have become popular for parents-to-be that have the urge for one more romantic vacation before the children come along. They can feature a number of extras, including a couples massage and spa treatments, gifts for the baby, a parenting class, walking tours and pre-natal fitness sessions.
Some hotels even cater to late-night cravings (like french fries or ice cream) and offer them with room-service delivery!
Notable Celebrity Babymoon Getaways
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's vacation in Namibia, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon in California, and Britney Spears babymoon with Kevin Federline in Arizona. More recently, Prince William and Duchess Kate, Hillary Duff & Mike Comrie, and Kate Hudson with Matt Bellamy are just a few celebrity couples that have gone on R&R getaways before giving birth.
- Best Places for a Babymoon: The most popular destinations are Florida and the Caribbean, followed closely by Hawaii and California.
