If you're looking for a UK getaway before your bundle of joy arrives, then there are plenty of dreamy destinations for the best babymoon breaks.

From luxurious pregnancy spa breaks to countryside retreats, it's nice to spend some quality time with your partner before you welcome your new baby into the world. It's a great way to enjoy a bit of calm before you swap swimming in pools for soft play.

The great thing about a UK babymoon is that you won't necessarily have to worry about flying while pregnant, so you can go at any point during your pregnancy. Just make sure that you check in with your midwife before you travel to ensure you aren't missing any appointments and to get the right advice!

Babymoon FAQ

Are babymoons worth it?

You don't have to spend thousands on a luxury couple's holiday to get the full benefits of a babymoon, there are affordable babymoon locations in the UK that are just as good.

Babymoons allow you to spend quality time with your partner, so if this is your first baby, booking a weekend trip somewhere or jetting off somewhere sunny, is a great way to celebrate the last few months of just being a pair.

When should you go on a babymoon?

It's often said that the best time to go on a babymoon is during your second trimester. This is because your first trimester symptoms should have subsided and you won't be struggling to walk or relax with a big baby bump.
