Expecting a bundle of joy? Then take time now to enjoy being a twosome. Here are five ideas for experiencing a babymoon.
1. Linger in luxury
You’re about to share your life with a little one. So treat yourself to luxury in Wyoming’s Teton Mountains in the United States. At the Four Seasons Jackson Hole, the four-night Pampering Package includes spa time designed for parents-to-be, as well as daily breakfast and the chance to unwind in a spectacular mountain setting. Nearby, Grand Teton National Park trails hug the shores of String, Leigh and Trapper Lakes. With little elevation gain, the flat terrain provides ample opportunity to photograph the jagged peaks reflected in the water, wade into the shallow lake and picnic along the shoreline.
After a national park visit or a stroll through the charming shops and galleries of this mountain town, relax by the alpine resort’s pool or find your way to the Ascent Lounge. Settle in with refreshing craft cocktails and mocktails before dining at The Handle Bar.
2. Take a bucket list trip
Leave the crowds and cliches behind on small, elegant ships that carry less than 310 travelers. : : #WindstarCruises#WindStar#StarBreeze#StarPride#StarLegend#Malaga#port#sea#cruiseships#smallluxurycruise#setsail#luxurytravel#sailingship#Windstar#cruising#cruiselife#bucketlisttravel

As your family – not to mention your belly – expands, the trips on your bucket list may shift positions as you redefine priorities. Peruse your list of current dream destinations and make reservations before the baby arrives. The islands of Tahiti, where the trade winds will sweep your cares away, are a top choice for many seeking a romantic holiday. Before late night nursing begins, board a four-masted sailing yacht and relax amid blue lagoons and pristine coral reefs. As a Windstar guest, you’ll spend a day on a small island (motu) where it’s possible to sip coconut drinks, wade into the sapphire-coloured sea and nap as the lilting sounds of a ukulele fade in the distance. Later, enjoy a romantic dinner for two under billowing sails and moonlit skies.
3. Babymoon in Bermuda

Pillows may never matter as much as they do during pregnancy. That’s why Bermuda’s Fairmont Southampton includes your choice of extra pillows as part of its babymoon package. Located on nearly 100 acres on the south shore of the mid-Atlantic island, you’ll be welcomed by colourful bougainvillea, swaying palms and special treats sure to satisfy current cravings. Look forward to strolling along pink sand beaches and relaxing through a prenatal massage in the Willow Stream Spa.

With your doctor’s permission, go off the grid. Leave the lists that accompany your busy life behind and turn away from television news, sports scores and pesky political punditry. Tune in to nature, each other and the quiet that you know is temporary. Read books, play cards, tell stories, linger over dinner and enjoy your special time together. Stroll through the woods or along the beach. Dig your toes in the sand or swing in a hammock. Journal, take a nap, then another nap and relish the special time for two.
