When is it safe to travel to your babymoon destination?

The first trimester is the time you’re most likely to experience nausea, meaning it’s not the best time to go on your babymoon. For this reason, many prospective mothers go on their babymoon in the second trimester when the sickness has typically passed. Plus, you’ll still feel comfortable enough to travel.

    As a father-to-be planning a baby moon with my wife (we’ve both been world travelers), I must say this feels more like an article of “chill places we’ve traveled too” guide rather than a practical baby moon guide for couples in their second trimester. We’re towards the end of the first trimester and couldn’t imagine dealing with a 8-12hr time change (US- NYC based) while battling the everyday challenges of pregnancy. Let alone figuring out places to easily find restrooms, food, pregnancy friendly spa/outdoor activities, and safe healthcare.

    Great guide for chill trips though not related to pregnancy/baby moons!

    • Salt in our Hair

      Hi Rejsefanatikere, we’ve included a range of destinations for every type of traveler – Hawaii could be a great spot for you both if you’re not looking to travel too far from NYC. Congrats on the baby! :)
