Most parents want their first babymoon to be perfect. They want it to be the best. They want to give the most of what they can before their newborn arrives. Its arrival will implicate the completeness of the precious relationship. This moment could be one of the most exciting and memorable stages of the couple’s lives. Babymoons can be romantic, fun and adventures.
If you are looking for additional, helpful tips on what you should do before planning your first babymoon, I have the best advice to help. Here are some of them:
How to Prepare for Your First Babymoon
Check with Your OB/GYN
Each woman has different nature of pregnancy. It is best to ask for professional assistance from your OB/GYN whether its best for you to travel. Seek for advice where you wish to travel, for how long you wish to travel and how you wish to travel (flight or road trip). And always remember that what works for other women may not work for you.
Seek Information about the Travel
If you are planning to travel either in national or international places, after checking with your doctor, check the most up-to-date alerts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You may also need a vaccination. In addition, it is best to know the information about your travel so you can avoid going to the countries where there are risks of malaria.
Select the Best Seat
When you are traveling by plane, you need to get a spot near the aisle so that you can get up and then stretch your legs. You can do the same thing when you are on a car ride. This is helpful when you want to avoid leg cramps during travel.
Avoid Hardcore Physical Activities
A babymoon is probably not the best time for you to do any hardcore activities like mountain hiking, biking and other forms of strenuous activities that are done physically. Be smart. Pace yourself and build lots of down times to have a rest and take a nap.
Get the Local Contacts
Get yourself prepared for any kind of complication in your pregnancy. This can be done by getting the numbers and names of the local doctors or OB/GYN. By doing this, you can have a peace of mind knowing that you can contact someone at the time you need a help or to answer your concerns.
Don’t fill your traveling bags with uncomfortable clothes. Bring your cute vacation attire but it also means that you have to leave your high-heels at home. Opt for flats and sneakers. Be comfortable and choose a place that suits your needs.
Do not reject your special local cuisines, but stick to your healthy and nutritious eating plan. In addition, get yourself aware about the advisory regarding the mercury levels when consuming local fishes and other sea foods.
Just before your fist baby arrives, make this babymoon as an opportunity to grab that last piece of freedom. And as a couple, make sure that this babymoon will serve as a channel to strengthen your bond and help you have a great preparation for the adventure of parenthood.
If you could do it all over again, where would you babymoon? Or where have you babymoon’d?
