5 of the Best Babymoon Destinations for Expectant Parents

babymoonA Babymoon is a vacation for expectant parents that gives you a chance to relax and recharge before your little bundle of joy impacts your future travel, your sleep patterns, and your world forever. The second trimester is usually the safest and most comfortable time to travel, so it’s the perfect time to get away with your partner for some quality time with just the two of you. You can dream and plan together, talk about your parenting styles, and enjoy some uninterrupted romantic time (which will likely be elusive after baby arrives!). Here are five luxurious babymoon destinations that will delight you with peace and pampering.
