Honeymoon is an amazing experience in life that every person desires to undergo after getting married. Luckily, I have got a great time too during my honeymoon. But, have you heard of a babymoon? I discovered the word during my sister’s pregnancy when I was searching for a suitable trip to boost her mood.
Tips to travel during pregnancy
Considering the fact that a trip during pregnancy is excellent for an expectant mother, I feel to share a few tips that she and her baby in the womb stay safe and healthy during a vacation aka babymoon. Let’s get started,
- Choose Time Wisely: If you are planning to make a trip during your pregnancy then choose the second trimester. It is considered a good time to travel for a mom-to-be as morning sickness and a bigger baby bump are not the part of the second trimester. Though, it varies mom to mom. In that case, you can consult with your doctor before setting off for the last time before your baby arrives.
- Choose Destination Carefully: It good to go for a plain or beach vacation during pregnancy. Hill station should be avoided during this time. Make sure that the destination you have chosen is safe to go and you will not face scarcity of good food, safe drinking water and liquid, and of course medicine if necessary. Avoid visiting such countries where vaccinations are mandatory to travel.
- Carry Your Essentials: You cannot take a risk with your health and baby during travel. Hence, you should carry a few healthy snacks and fluids to keep yourself charged and hydrated.
- Go For Little Luggage Option: During pregnancy, women already feel it hard to move frequently. So, if you are traveling during your pregnancy then try to carry luggage as light as likely. Just don’t forget to take all your medical portfolio, medication prescriptions, emergency medications, regular vitamins, and anti-nausea medications or bands with you.
- Move a Little Often: It is not good for a pregnant woman to sit for a long time without moving. Hence, if you are on a road trip or you are on a plane/bus/train then try to stretch your legs and body frequently. If you can have a walk while on a train or plane then it would be very good for you.
On a Closing Note,
Don’t forget to get a checkup before your set off your vacation with your baby in the womb. A medical checkup can ensure whether you are fit for the vacation or not.
