What is a Babymoon?
The last vacation taken by expecting couples before the birth of their baby (preferably in the 2nd trimester).
Treat yourself to a luxurious getaway before your baby arrives. Celebrate your pregnancy! Pamper yourself with prenatal spa treatments specially designed for pregnant women. Enjoy especially designed babymoon packages which can include: unlimited complimentary in-room movies, late check-out, cravings bag, foodie treats, cigars and sports massages for dad-to-be, photoshoots, nursery tile classes, breathing classes, yoga sessions, pregnancy massage for mom-to-be and non-alcoholic cocktails (Mocktail, Please). Or go on a shopping spree with a personal shopper to show you all the beautiful baby boutiques.
What is the safest time to travel?
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the safest time for a pregnant woman to travel is during the second trimester (18 through 24 weeks).
Up to how many weeks before giving birth is it allowed to fly?
After 28 weeks, most airlines require a letter from your doctor. There are many different restrictions per airline. We suggest that you check if the airliner you are using has specific restrictions for pregnant women or see our chart below.
BabyMoon® Travel Tips :
Q&A Everything Babymoon
Do you have some tips to prepare for our Babymoon trip?
- take (copies) of medical records in your bag
- know your blood type
- get a list of hospitals from the tourist board and keep a list of emergency contacts
- when you take a flight, reserve an aisle seat so that you can easily access the bathroom and move about the cabin (or reserve a business class seat with a flatbed)
- wear a high factor sunscreen and stick to bottled water
- avoid diving, skiing and altitudes higher than 8,500 ft. (about 2,500 meters)
- pregnant women should not sleep at altitudes >12,000 ft (3,658 m)
- avoid mosquitoes, expectant mothers are more susceptible to, and often helpless against, the various diseases they may be carrying
- avoid countries with health concerns – you won’t be able to take malaria medication or have all vaccinations, always talk to your doctor first before booking your trip.
Do you have some tips during the flight?
- wear flat and comfortable shoes
- place a pillow against the lower back to ease the strain
- trying to walk every two hours, this will help combat swelling and discomfort
- keep hydrated and avoid coffee and tea. Drink plenty of water, at least one litre for every two hours in flight
- keep your seatbelt low around your hips, not around your abdomen

Travelling to countries with health concerns?
The safety of you and your baby always comes first. Therefore avoid travelling to areas where malaria and yellow fever occurs (yellow fever – Central South America and parts of equatorial Africa).
For detailed information about vaccination during pregnancy, we would like to refer to the website of Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Department of Health and Human Services – USA).
