Baby and You

Babymoon holiday with On the Beach

Ever heard the phrase ‘happy mum, happy baby’? At On the Beach we suggest embracing this philosophy with open arms and booking a babymoon. After all, it’s tough work when you’re eating, living and thinking for two. Whether you’re a first-time mum or you’ve earned your tiger stripes before, pregnancy is the truly special time before you jump into the joyful chaos of your new arrival – it’s worth savouring every moment of relative calm before the big day. And what better way to get some bump-friendly bliss than a beach holiday?

Imagine yourself relaxing on a sun lounger, cocktail in hand (although a mocktail is admittedly more your style recently…), with nothing but golden sun and blue sky to think about. Picture yourself being pampered in a hotel spa or unwinding in an adults-only pool. Consider your babymoon a last holiday hurrah before your next exciting milestone; a chance to get away from fussing family members and well-meaning friends just to concentrate on you.

When can I travel?

Deciding when to jet off on your babymoon is all about your comfort. Doctors advise that it’s usually safe to fly after 12 weeks and before 36 weeks (32 weeks if you’re carrying multiples) into your pregnancy. Some insurers might ask you for a letter from your doctor or midwife confirming your due date, and it’s always worth seeking medical advice just in case.

There’s an inviting window of opportunity for you to relax abroad, top up your vitamin D and practice some self-care before you start nesting at home. and we’ll get you on the beach.
