Do You Need To Go On a Babymoon?

September 15, 2016

Before your bundle of joy arrives in the world you want to make as much time for yourself as possible. Do you need a Babymoon?

Yes!

 

You work hard all week and are doing the massive  job of growing and nurturing another human! A little weekend getaway or a week away with your partner will bring much needed downtime before your life changes forever.

 

So what options do you have for a Babymoon?

 

If you are on a tight budget a weekend getaway could be perfect for you. A weekend in a  cosy cottage somewhere and a break from the hustle and bustle of life can make you feel much more relaxed as you head towards birth.  We love this post showing off a little UK break over on Mrs Magovern as it shows that just a few days somewhere special can be the perfect location.

 

If you can afford a week away then you can’t beat a week in the sun! it’s fab for vitamin D and the relaxation will be second to none as you can shrug off all those responsibilities at the check in gate! Just remember that your skin can be so different during pregnancy and sunscreen is a must!

 

If you already have children you may want to take them away with you. It’s your last time as that family unit and it’s a chance to show your child a bit of fun before the world revolves around feeds and nappy change. New Mumblings shows how this can work with her 6 tips for sharing a family room in harmony. Make sure you and your partner swap for some childfree time though. A spa afternoon as a treat is perfect to feel pampered before baby arrives!

 

A babymoon is so important. Of course you don’t have to go on a baby moon. You can explore your home town or villages nearby over a weekend. Book into a spa. Do something for you - we highly recommend it! 

 

Why?

 

It allows you time to reflect on the changes approaching yet gives you the freedom to spend time with each other without any work/home challenges. 

 

You’ll get some quality time with your partner without distraction. You can talk about plans for the future or your hopes/fears for labour and have some proper time to talk about it all.

 

It’s a chance to do something romantic before labour day! Country walks, massages together, a dinner out, baths and chill out time. Whatever your style of romance it’s essential to remember that although you’ll be parents you appreciate and love each other.

 

Switch off social media and just enjoy each other! Make sure you're refreshed enough for your next adventure!

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is used to treat symptoms all over your body using only pressure from your fingertips on your feet (and sometimes hands). It’s far more than a lovely foot massage as it’s based on the belief that your feet map your body, with pressure points linking to corresponding organs and tissues.

Men can suffer pregnancy symptoms too

This condition is called Couvade Syndrome which comes from the French word “couver” meaning “to hatch” and although most doctors and midwives will tell you they have experienced expectant fathers suffering from this condition there is no medical diagnosis for it. However Dr Arthur Brennan, who was the author of the study undertaken at St George’s Hospital says: "Some people may perceive this as men trying to get in on the act but far from being attention-seeking, these symptoms are involuntary”.
