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.
