Honeymoons, move over—there’s a new celebration trend popping up all over the nation, and it’s called the babymoon.
If you’re as confused as we were when we first heard this, let us break it down for you. A babymoon is similar in essence to a honeymoon, but it’s really a couple’s last hoorah (at least for a while, anyway) before their new baby comes – a little getaway to celebrate life as two before life becomes a family of three.
Why take a babymoon vacation?
Really, the concept of a babymoon vacation makes total sense. It’s the perfect moment to let yourself disconnect, relax and soak up some stunning surroundings. Your babymoon should be romantic, relaxing and comfortable. Your babymoon should be luxurious. Your babymoon should be intimate, quiet and bring you and your partner a little piece of Zen. And that’s why you should spoil yourself silly – relax in a hammock overlooking the lush rainforest, hide away within the hills of Chile or fall asleep under the stars in a beachside cabin. This is your time to slow it down and savor the steps you’ve taken so far.
