Babymoons Gain Momentum

Baby Bump: Babymoons Are on the Rise

Pregnancy has become an industry of its own with couture clothes, high end belly rubs and push prizes, but before an expectant mama's stomach gets too stretched, there's one last hurrah — the babymoon.

Just as newlyweds take a trip to kick off married life, expectant parents enjoy a babymoon to cherish each other before infant makes three.

Not everyone can afford a trip around the world, but here are some getaway options for parents-to-be. To see our recommendations,


  • $ – Rent a hotel room for one night in your city. Order room service, set up massages and enjoy a night with your sweetie.
  • $$ – Plan an escape to a local town where you can spend some quality together time over a romantic dinner.
  • $$$ – Book a long weekend in NYC, San Francisco, the Rockies, or a Florida beach where you can enjoy the scenery and plan some exciting activities.
  • $$$$ – If you've got the money and time, arrange an extended trip to Italy, Mexico, Hawaii or another exotic location where R&R is served up first–class.

The generation that touts rhinestone pacifiers is making babymoons more of a pregnancy staple than a rarity. But, not everyone is born with a silver spoon.

What's your take on this trend?

I was 4mos pregnant when my hubby and I got married so our honeymoon was also the babymoon. I'm so glad we got to have that vacation before our son was born because who knows when we'll be able to get away like that again.

We knew we wanted to start trying in March/April so we went to Ireland just before. We didn't want to try while in Ireland as I LOVE WHISKEY ;-) My husband did want to try and travel a whole bunch while I was pregnant though as he was slightly afraid that once the baby came we would never go anywhere again. ;-)

That's a great idea, but I'd probably want to go before we started trying (or do all the trying on the babymoon! ;) )

Before our son was born (I was 6 mos along) we went to Turks and Caikos. This time we're not going anywhere! :rotfl: I guess since we already have a child we kissed our romantic vacations goodbye for a while. I would feel bad to leave our son with grandma while we went on a trip.

We did our Babymoon right before we started trying to get pregnant - and went to Vegas. Definitely glad we did it.
